– 1991 SFAI Lecture Series: Martin Wong


Martin Wong gave a free public lecture about his work at the San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) on February 20, 1991, a part of the school’s ongoing artist lecture series. He is introduced on this recording by Mark Dean Johnson, then SFAI Associate Dean of Academic Affairs. SFAI was founded in 1871, the first art school west of the Mississippi, and has had a celebrated and storied history. Wong returned to SFAI in 1993 for a solo exhibition of his work, Chinatown U.S.A., and was concurrently engaged as a visiting artist working directly with students.
