Wednesday, April 25, 2012

You may not be able to go to the media preview - but when it opens - sounds like it'll be a ghost...thing...spooky...it really is a Wednesday.

Phantoms of Asia: Contemporary Awakens the Past - The first large scale exhibition of contemporary art organized by the Asian Art Museum—explores the spiritual and supernatural roots of Asian art and culture through a compelling interplay of more than 60 contemporary artworks in dialogue with 80 historical objects from the museum’s renowned collection. Spread over 40,000 square feet throughout—and even outside—the museum, the exhibition encourages visitors to view traditional objects not simply as relics of the past, but as vibrant and insightful connections to the present.
