Description


Although Nancy Chunn has had a long standing interest in Chinese history, the June 4, 1989 massacre at Tiananmen Square provided the impetus for the China Series. This work chronicles both the vast and complex history of China and traces the ancient and modern precedents leading to the Tiananmen massacre. This exhibition presents the first half of the China series, with each of the six works delineating dynasties in combination with periods of unification or division (2200 B.C. – 1368 A.D.)
