Where the Truth Lies: The Art of Qiu Ying

Implementation of a single-site, temporary exhibition on the art of Ming Dynasty painter Qiu Ying (c. 1494–c. 1552). 

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) respectfully requests a $100,000 implementation grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to support Where the Truth Lies: The Art of Qiu Ying, a temporary exhibition on view from February 9 to May 17, 2020. The exhibition focuses on the art of the Ming dynasty Wu School painter Qiu Ying (ca. 1494–ca. 1552), traditionally classified by Chinese art historians as one of the "Four Great Masters of the Ming Dynasty." Curated by Dr. Stephen Little, LACMA’s Florence & Harry Sloan Curator of Chinese Art, and Head, Chinese, Korean, and South & Southeast Asian Departments, the exhibition will include approximately 70 paintings and works on paper and silk from the 15th century to the 20th century. It will be accompanied by an extensive array of didactic materials and a full complement of interpretive humanities and educational programs, along with a fully illustrated 256-page catalogue.
