Museums at Washington and Lee University
Lexington, Virginia

To support Stephanie Shih: LONG TIME NO SEE 好久不見, an exhibition derived from the Museums at Washington and Lee University’s first artist’s residency, bringing the long tradition of Chinese export porcelain in the West into dialogue with contemporary conversations about representation, diversity, and belonging in the arts through the presentation of Los Angelesbased artist Stephanie Shih’s 15 life-size photographic still life compositions with objects from the museums’ Reeves Collection of Ceramics created prior to the mid-1800s, with the intention of challenging preconceived notions about American fine and decorative arts and national identity. The exhibition is accompanied by a digital and printed exhibition guide and a scholarly catalogue.
