The Sachs Program for Arts Innovation and Penn Live Arts at the Annenberg Center are pleased to present a comprehensive exhibition of the work of artist and educator Chen Lok Lee, on view September 15, 2022 - May 2023.
A political refugee who swam to Hong Kong to escape Chinese political persecution, Chen Lok Lee’s story is one of survival and resilience. Lee overcame the struggles of immigration to succeed as a beloved and respected artist, educator and master printmaker in Philadelphia.
The 18 prints, watercolors and lithographs in Excluded/Inclusion: The Work of Chen Lok Lee show the journey of his life and art on three continents, and demonstrate the broad range of his skillset and artistic style. It is a demonstration of work that shows the human spirit of determination, personal agency and the power of choice to survive.
