Christina Yu Yu joined the USC Pacific Asia Museum from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, where she served as assistant curator of Chinese art. At LACMA she was instrumental in forming collaborations with the museum’s education department on all educational and outreach programs related to Chinese art and culture.
She also was responsible for the installation and rotation of LACMA’s Chinese art galleries and co-curated the exhibition “Chinese Paintings From Japanese Collections,” which opened in May and will remain on display through July 6. This is the first major exhibition in the United States to examine the story of Chinese paintings in Japan over the course of 600 years. It features nearly 40 masterpieces.
Yu is also the co-founder of Pacific Connections, which supports contemporary Asian art in Southern California.
