NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, May 17, 2024 / — The Liu Shiming Art Gallery recently hosted a compelling gallery talk by renowned art critic and writer Richard Vine, titled “Liu Shiming: Sculpture as Truth.” The event provided an in-depth exploration of Liu Shiming’s life, artistic journey, and his significant contributions to Chinese sculpture.
