First Look: Collecting Contemporary at the Asian
September 4–October 11, 2015
First Look: Collecting Contemporary at the Asian presented exciting works from the Asian Art Museum’s growing collection of contemporary art, many on view for the first time. Expanding upon the museum’s core collection of traditional Asian art, the exhibition included a range of recent acquisitions—painting, drawing, photography, new media, baskets, and ceramics among them—that infuse traditional themes, mediums, and cultural history with the urgency of contemporary ideas.
