The Interiority of Belonging: Miki Hayakawa's Portraits
Who is Miki Hayakawa (ミキ早川, 1899–1953)? Why is there so little known about the work of an artist who held her first solo show of 150 paintings in San Francisco in 1929, was selected for the inaugural exhibition of the San Francisco Museum of Art in 1935, and contributed to Santa Fe’s vibrant art scenes alongside the likes of John Sloan and Alfred Morang? Professor ShiPu Wang will share discoveries from his journey of piecing together Hayakawa's oeuvre and life and explore how portraiture served as a vital means for her to forge multicultural connections in diverse communities during the Exclusion Era.

Presentation by ShiPu Wang, Coats Endowed Chair in the Arts and Professor of Art History at the University of California, Merced.


This presentation is part of the Edgar P. Richardson Lecture Series hosted by PORTAL, the Portrait Gallery's Scholarly Center.
