Hi! My name is Amelia Chau and I am the Assistant Curator of Asian Art at the DIA. I was born in Hong Kong, attended college in California, and hold an MA in the History of Art from the University of California, Riverside. My master’s thesis examined 20th century Chinese paintings in the context of traditional Chinese and modern European painting theories. Since 1996, I have worked on many installations of Asian art at the DIA.

I am interested in works by photographers who explore relationships between traditional and contemporary cultures and aesthetics. Works by Asian photographers Hiroshi Sugimoto, Atta Kim, Watanabe Yoshio, Sze Tsung Leong, and Kenro Izu are among my favorites.
