Shapiro Curator of Chinese and East Asian Art at the Peabody Essex Museum and the Chinese art specialist at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Asian Art (formerly Freer and Sackler). She cocurated the groundbreaking exhibition Empresses of China’s Forbidden City, a collaboration between the Peabody Essex, the Arthur M. Sackler Museum in Washington, DC, and Beijing’s Palace Museum.
Kate Addleman-Frankel, the Gary and Ellen Davis Curator of Photography at the Johnson; Stacey Lambrow, curator of the Loewentheil Photography of China Collection; and Yuhua Ding, PhD 2020, former curatorial assistant for Asian art at the Johnson, will share selected research findings from their recent exhibition, Lai Fong (ca. 1839–1890): Photographer of China.
This lecture is supported by the Stoikov Asian Art Lecture Fund at the Johnson, which was funded by a generous gift from Judith Stoikov, Class of 1963.
