Asian/American/Modern Art: Shifting Currents, 1900–1970 presents the work of artists of Asian ancestry who lived and worked in the United States. On view October 25, 2008, to January 18, 2009, this exhibition represents the first comprehensive survey of these artists and seeks to advance awareness of this under-represented group in American art history. This exhibition is rich in variety and demonstrates the wealth of Asian American art using masterpieces spanning 70 years. Nearly 100 works by more than 60 artists—many of whom had their work exhibited at the de Young or Legion of Honor in earlier decades—are included.Check more out here.
