Unmasking the Arts with Helga Davis
Pianist Wu Han in Conversation with Helga Davis
About the Video
At the height of the pandemic, pianist Wu Han joined The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, where she serves as co-artistic director, for a surreal concert tour in Taiwan under strict quarantine conditions. A few months later, she no longer felt safe walking down the street in NYC after the recent wave of anti-Asian violence. Now, in an episode marking Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, she sits with host Helga Davis as part of our Unmasking the Arts conversation series in a personal discussion about her relationship to music throughout this eventful year as together they look to the future.
“As artists, even in good times we should always have a certain sense of emergency because our job is to push limits…”
—Pianist Wu Han
