“Collected Letters” by Liu Jianhua

Commissioned for our 50th anniversary, Liu’s striking artwork links the building’s past as the city’s Main Library with the museum’s distinctly forward-looking mission.

Renowned installation artist Liu Jianhua has created a thought-provoking new artwork that blends the classic and contemporary: Porcelain letters and fragments of Chinese characters, suspended in midair, invite you to hunt for meaning.
