    New Turquoise Mountain: Artists Transforming Afghanistan
    Place: Freer Gallery of Art / Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution - Washington, D.C., 1050 Independence Ave SW, USA
    Date: Mar 05, 2016 to Oct 29, 2017
    Detail: From its critical position on the ancient Silk Road that stretches from Europe to China, Afghanistan absorbed traditions from India, Persia, and Central Asia and blended them into a distinct artistic culture. Decades of civil unrest that began in the 1970s nearly destroyed this vital heritage.  Many of Afghanistan’s artisans were forced to leave their country or give up their craft. The old city of Kabul, once a bustling center of craft and commerce, fell into ruin.

    The British non-governmental organization Turquoise Mountain, founded in 2006 at the request of HRH The Prince of Wales and the President of Afghanistan, has transformed the Murad Khani district of Old Kabul from slum conditions into a vibrant cultural and economic center. The organization has renovated historic buildings, opened a primary school and a medical clinic, and rebuilt necessary infrastructure. It has founded Afghanistan’s premier institution for vocational training in the arts. Dedicated to teaching a new generation of Afghan artisans in woodwork, calligraphy, ceramics, jewelry design, and other crafts, Turquoise Mountain is reviving the nation’s proud cultural legacy.

    To tell this transformative story of culture and heritage in Murad Khani, Afghan woodworkers have created magnificent wood arcades, screens, and a pavilion, all carved by hand from Himalayan cedar. Wander among these arcades and explore spectacular contemporary carpets, jewelry, and calligraphy, all complemented by videos and large-scale photographs of the Afghan artisans who made them. Artisans from Murad Khani are bringing the exhibition to life by demonstrating their art, sharing their experiences, and allowing visitors to encounter Afghanistan’s art and culture firsthand.

    New MegaCity: India's Culture of the Streets
    Place: The Peabody Essex Museum - Salem, 161 Essex Street, Massachusetts, USA
    Date: Mar 21, 2016 to Dec 31, 2017
    Detail: In the early 20th century, Indian artists viewed the village as the true locus for India\'s identity, distinct from that of the British colonial cities of Calcutta, Bombay and New Delhi. By mid-century, India had gained independence and its cities were replenished with all kinds of people fulfilling their dreams. In the cities, the drive toward modernity co-existed with the enduring presence of the spiritual in unexpected ways.

    This installation includes paintings from PEM\'s Chester and Davida Herwitz Collection. Images of confrontation, hope, fracture and change traverse shifting grounds rich with contradictions.

    New From the Imperial Theater: Chinese Opera Costumes of the 18th and 19th Centuries
    Place: The Metropolitan Museum of Art - New York, 1000 Fifth Avenue, USA
    Date: Jun 25, 2016 to Oct 09, 2017
    Detail: Drawn entirely from The Met collection, this exhibition examines these luxury textiles from artistic and technical points of view. It is organized in two rotations. The first focuses on costumes used in dramas based on historical events; and the second will feature costumes from plays derived from legends and myths. The presentation showcases eight robes, each of which was created for a specific role—court lady, official, general, monk, nun, and immortal. A set of album leaves faithfully depicting theatrical characters wearing such robes is also displayed.

    The 18th and 19th centuries witnessed a flowering of Chinese drama. Under the patronage of the Qing court (1644–1911), performances—including the \"Peking Opera\"—filled the Forbidden City in Beijing. A form of traditional Chinese theater, Peking Opera was developed fully by the mid-19th century, and because of the form\'s minimal stage settings and the importance of exaggerated gestures and movements, costume played an unusually significant role.

    This exhibition includes superb examples with interior markings indicating their use in court productions.

    New Cinnabar: The Chinese Art of Carved Lacquer, 14th to 19th Century
    Place: The Metropolitan Museum of Art - New York, 1000 Fifth Avenue, USA
    Date: Jun 25, 2016 to Oct 09, 2017
    Detail: This exhibition, featuring 45 magnificent examples of Chinese carved lacquer drawn entirely from The Met collection, will explore the development of this significant artistic tradition. Among the objects on view will be works created as birthday gifts bearing symbols of long life, such as peaches, cranes, the character for longevity (shou), and representations of children. One of the highlights is a unique, large, lobed tray of the 14th century, carved with a delightful scene showing two women and 33 children. Other early pieces on view include a dish with a scene of long-tailed birds and hollyhocks. A rare screen that was produced by Lu Guisheng—a famous 19th-century artist and one of the few individuals working in lacquer whose name is recorded in Chinese history—provides a spectacular finale to this tradition.

    Lacquer, the resin of a family of trees found in southern China, hardens when exposed to oxygen and humidity and can become a natural plastic. Tinted with cinnabar (red), carbon (black), and other minerals, it has been used as an artistic medium in China since at least the sixth century B.C. Carved lacquer, which involves applying multiple layers of lacquer onto a substructure (usually wood) and then entails carving through the layers, is the most laborious and time-consuming of all lacquering techniques.

    New Colors of the Universe: Chinese Hardstone Carvings
    Place: The Metropolitan Museum of Art - New York, 1000 Fifth Avenue, USA
    Date: Jun 25, 2016 to Oct 09, 2017
    Detail: Hardstone carving is one of the oldest arts in China, dating back to the fifth millennium B.C. It was not until the Qing dynasty, however, that an abundant supply of raw material, extraordinary craftsmanship, and keen imperial patronage allowed the art to flourish. During the 18th century, widespread prosperity and successful military campaigns brought political stability, while also securing the trade routes that permitted the importation of gemstones over the Silk Roads and through sea trade routes from as far away as Europe.

    Showcasing a selection of 75 exquisite carvings drawn from The Met collection, this exhibition presents the lapidary art of China\'s Qing dynasty (1644–1911). Featuring not only jade, the most esteemed of East Asian gems, but also agate, malachite, turquoise, quartz, amber, coral, and lapis lazuli, the exhibition reveals the extensive variety of hardstones and full palette of vibrant colors that were favored at the imperial court. Exploring the diverse subjects and styles of Qing lapidary art, Colors of the Universe illustrates the extraordinary imagination and technical virtuosity behind these miniature sculptures.

    New Asian Art at 100: A History in Photographs
    Place: The Metropolitan Museum of Art - New York, 1000 Fifth Avenue, USA
    Date: Sep 05, 2016 to Oct 11, 2017
    Detail: Since The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded in 1870, the institution\'s physical space and collection have grown and its curatorial departments have diversified. The first Asian works of art to enter the collection—mostly ceramics and lacquers—were acquired in 1879 and originally accommodated in what was then called the Department of Decorative Arts. Only in 1915 was a separate Department of Far Eastern Art established, and it was not until 1986 that its name was changed to the Department of Asian Art. The timeline presented in the photographs in this exhibition chronicles the changing face of The Met\'s galleries of Asian art as the building\'s footprint has expanded, exhibition styles have evolved, and the collection has grown.

    Forever a work in progress, The Met\'s collection of Asian art is ultimately the product of the passion and scholarship of the many collectors, curators, donors, dealers, and directors who have together shaped the Museum\'s holdings and legacy.

    New Waxed: Batik from Java
    Place: The Dallas Museum of Art - Dallas, 1717 North Harwood, Texas, USA
    Date: Sep 25, 2016 to Sep 10, 2017
    Detail: Drawn from the DMA’s collection, Waxed: Batik from Java presents a selection of Javanese batik made in the West and Central regions, where the main batik production was centered during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Batik is a wax-resist process for dye-decorating cloth. In Indonesia, batik is especially associated with the island of Java.

    The DMA batik collection was established in 1982 with a gift of eight cloths that were collected before 1930. They were donated by Jerry Bywaters, DMA Director from 1946 to 1964, and his wife, Mary, in memory of Paul and Viola van Katwijk. A second installation of these cloths will be presented in March 2017.

    New Splendors of Korean Art
    Place: The Metropolitan Museum of Art - New York, 1000 Fifth Avenue, USA

    Detail: Among the objects reflecting key genres and themes of Korean art are strikingly modern-looking pots and glittering jewelry from ancient burial sites; exquisite gilded Buddhist sculpture from the seventh through the seventeenth century; sophisticated celadon and metalwork of the Goryeo dynasty; porcelain with delightful and distinctively Korean designs; and paintings on diverse subjects from the Joseon and early modern periods.

    New Chinese Snuff Bottles from Southern Californian Collectors
    Place: LACMA - Los Angeles, 5905 Wilshire Blvd., California, USA
    Date: Oct 29, 2016 to Oct 01, 2017
    Detail: Snuff, a powdered form of tobacco from the Americas, was initially brought to China by European traders in the late 16th century, during the Ming dynasty (1368–1644). It was in the 17th century, however, in the early Qing dynasty (1644–1911), that China witnessed a rise of snuff-taking among the upper classes. Inhaling snuff was perceived as more stylish and elegant than smoking tobacco, and this led to the subsequent use and collecting of snuff bottles (biyanhu).

    Drawn from nine private collections in Southern California, the snuff bottles shown in this exhibition represent an extraordinary variety of materials, from porcelain, glass, and cloisonné to rock crystal, limestone with fossils, and bamboo. These miniature works of art reflect a wide range of decorative techniques, including carving, enameling, and painting on the inner surfaces of transparent bottles made of glass and crystal. These bottles reflect themes from history, mythology, poetry and prose, and religion. The exhibition also includes several rare imperial bottles bearing reign marks of the Qianlong (1736–1795) and Jiaqing (1796–1820) emperors.

    New The Sculptural Turn: Contemporary Japanese Ceramics from the Kempner and Stein Collection
    Place: Asian Art Museum - San Francisco, 200 Larkin St, California, USA
    Date: Nov 09, 2016 to Nov 26, 2017
    Detail: The Sculptural Turn showcases the work of fourteen Japanese clay artists, all born after World War II, whose work expands on early twentieth-century experimental forms. Unlike previous generations of Japanese potters who learned exclusively from master craftsmen, these artists studied in universities and in many cases came to ceramics after exploring other fields. They are masters of technique, material, and concept. Their practices are informed by various cosmopolitan sources, even when they are part of a longstanding family lineage or regional tradition. Drawn together by collectors with an eye for abstract, minimalist, and expressionistic contemporary art, this exhibition tells a story of the changing character of clay in Japan.

    The diverse artists featured in this exhibition bring their unique skills and visions to their work. Miwa Kazuhiko is from a celebrated family of Hagipotters but was inspired by the American ceramic artist Peter Voulkos. Kondo Takahiro uses geometric minimalism and incorporates glass to achieve a technically innovative glaze he calls \"silver mist.\" Mihara Ken creates purely sculptural works in the tradition of sekki, a high-fired, unglazed ceramic made of clay from his native city of Izumo in Shimane prefecture. Kato Tsubusa, a lifelong ceramicist, has veered away from using native clay and instead works with New Zealand kaolin, a particularly unforgiving material.

    The Sculptural Turn highlights some of Japan\'s leading female potters who comprise the first generation of women to distinguish themselves in a traditionally male field. In addition to showcasing the work of female living masters, it includes two of Japan\'s rising young stars, Hattori Makiko and Fujikasa Satoko, who create expressive and technically complicated works in porcelain and Shigaraki stoneware from Shiga prefecture, respectively. Kishi Eiko creates austere, angular work that resembles cut stone or molded concrete, an effect achieved by kneading together raw clay with crushed fired clay, forming slabs into forms by hand, then perforating the clay using knives and needles. Koike Shoko creates vessels inspired by marine life, formed from many layers of Shigaraki clay and two layers of glaze that is raked to create an irregular surface. Sakurai Yasuko works in porcelain, creating sculptural pieces that incorporate light, shadow, and void into their composition. Katsumata Chieko creates ceramic forms that are inspired by sea life and plant and mineral forms, often colored with metallic pigment. In her Tentacled Sea Flower (2013), her coral-like forms are rendered in white, one of the pale hues common to the works in this exhibition from the collection formed by Dr. Phyllis A. Kempner and Dr. David D. Stein of San Francisco over the past fifteen years.

    New Embroidering an Ordered Cosmos: Chinese Daoist Priest Garments of the Qing Dynasty (1644 – 1911)
    Place: Minneapolis Institute of Art - Minneapolis, 2400 Third Avenue South, Minnesota, USA
    Date: Dec 12, 2016 to Sep 03, 2017
    Detail: Daoist belief emphasizes an ordered cosmos, harmonious existence with nature, and heavenly paradise. Together with Confucianism and Buddhism, it is one of China’s three major belief systems. Daoism emerged after 100 CE and soon acquired the trappings of organized religion: a supreme god, a set of scriptures, temples, priests, and ritual practices.

    Robes worn by Daoist priests represent some of the richest embroidered decoration in Chinese clothing. They take two basic forms: a square, full-length, sleeveless robe with center-front opening (jiangyi), and a full-length, sleeved garment with center-front opening fastened with ties (daopao). Elaborate symbolic schemes are common to both. They feature cosmic diagrams representing paradise; the sun and moon; phoenixes (birds with fiery feathers); abstract forms of China’s five sacred mountains; and circles containing 12 zodiac animals. When priests wore robes like these, they were symbolically united with the cosmos and able to go beyond the earthly and heavenly realms.

    New Self-Interned, 1942: Noguchi in Poston War Relocation Center
    Place: The Noguchi Museum - Long Island City, 32-37 Vernon Boulevard, New York, USA
    Date: Jan 18, 2017 to Jan 07, 2018
    Detail: Self-Interned, 1942 brings together about two dozen works from the Museum’s collection, dating from before, during, and after Noguchi’s time at Poston, along with a substantial selection of archival documents. Together these evoke this harrowing moment in the history of American democracy, while revealing the impact that his experience at Poston had on Noguchi’s art.

    New Unexpected Light: Works by Young Il Ahn
    Place: LACMA - Los Angeles, 5905 Wilshire Blvd., California, USA
    Date: Feb 25, 2017 to Oct 01, 2017
    Detail: Korean-American artist Young Il Ahn was born in 1934 in Gaeseong, historically known as the capital of the Goryeo dynasty (912–1392) and geographically located in North Korea today. While acknowledged as a child prodigy, Ahn carried out his most prolific work in Los Angeles since his arrival in the U.S. in 1966. Since then, Ahn’s works have consistently focused on his interest in the local surroundings rather than the country he left. This exhibition showcases many works from his best-known series, Water, which was inspired by a near-death incident on the Pacific Ocean in 1983, as well as his most recent works. The Water series marks a notable shift in Ahn’s style from semi abstraction to complete abstraction, which has continued to define his style to this day.

    This exhibition marks the first-ever introduction of a Korean-American artist at LACMA, highlighting the ever expanding diversity and realities within the ethnic Korean population in Los Angeles.

These visuals will be enhanced by audio and video multimedia—a feast for the eyes and ears.

    New A World of Radiant Awakening: Buddhism and the Painting of China
    Place: Minneapolis Institute of Art - Minneapolis, 2400 Third Avenue South, Minnesota, USA
    Date: Mar 18, 2017 to Nov 05, 2017
    Detail: Buddhism has been a dominant religious and intellectual force in China since it arrived from India around 100 C.E. Both literati and professional artists created Chinese Buddhist paintings.

    Literati painters, scholars for whom painting was a form of intellectual and moral cultivation, created meditative scenes by incorporating Buddhist ideas into landscape painting. For painters who followed Chan (Zen) Buddhism, the expressive handling of ink evoked the sudden awareness that comes in moments of insight.

    Professional artists generally focused on figurative paintings, including depictions of buddhas, bodhisattvas (nearly enlightened beings that stay on earth to help people), arhats (the original followers of the Buddha), and eminent monks. During the Qing dynasty (1644­–1911), the imperial patronage of esoteric Buddhism—the primary school of Tibetan Buddhism—resulted in a vast number of religious works in the Tibetan style. These paintings combine Tibetan attention to iconographic detail with Chinese-inspired decorative elements.

    New Show Me the Mini
    Place: Harn Museum of Art - Gainesville, 3259 Hull Road, Florida, USA

    New Arts of Islamic Lands: Selections from The al-Sabah Collection, Kuwait
    Place: The Museum of Fine Arts, Caroline Wiess Law Building - Houston, 1001 Bissonnet, Texas, USA
    Date: Mar 21, 2017 to Jan 28, 2018
    Detail: The Museum’s landmark partnership with the Kuwait-based al-Sabah Collection and the cultural institution Dar al-Athar al-Islamiyyah continues with an expanded installation of Arts of Islamic Lands: Selections from The al-Sabah Collection, Kuwait.

    The renowned al-Sabah Collection is one of the greatest privately held collections of Islamic art in the world. The collaboration with the Museum, established in 2012, led to the 2013 Houston debut of 67 objects ranging from carpets and architectural fragments to exquisite ceramics, metalwork, jewelry, scientific instruments, and manuscripts.

    This expanded installation more than triples the display, increasing the art on view to some 250 works that, together, present an impressive and comprehensive spectrum of Islamic art. Objects from the 8th to 18th century—made in North Africa, the Middle East, Turkey, India, the Iberian Peninsula, and Central Asia—demonstrate the development of techniques, craftsmanship, and aesthetics in Islamic visual culture.

    Among the highlights are a 16th-century Ottoman Turkish prayer carpet; a glass mosque lamp from 14th-century Cairo; an extraordinary earthenware bowl from 9th-century Iraq that transcends its humble function; early gold jewelry from Afghanistan and Syria; and opulent Mughal jewelry crafted in the refined kundan technique, including a brilliant bird pendant fabricated in late 16th-century India from gold, rubies, emeralds, diamonds, and rock crystals.

    New Sculpting Nature: Jade from the Collection
    Place: Crow Collection of Asian Art - Dallas, 2010 Flora St., Texas, USA

    Detail: The permanent collection of the Crow Collection of Asian Art is comprised of a large number of various types of jade objects from the Qing dynasty (1644-1911). This outstanding collection of later-period jades is among the finest of its kind in the United States. Shining a spotlight on this strength of the museum\'s collection, the exhibition presents a stunning selection of jade objects that reflect multiple aspects of Chinese culture – from archaic ritual, through the world of the scholars, to the refinements of courtly life. Jade, a precious material found in nature, is fashioned into a diverse variety of objects that reflect Chinese culture, beliefs, and aesthetic tastes.

    New The Darkened Mirror: Global Perspectives on Water
    Place: The San Jose Museum of Art - San Jose, 110 South Market Street, California, USA
    Date: Apr 07, 2017 to Aug 27, 2017
    Detail: Our simultaneously abusive and dependent relationship with water has made it an international battleground not only of environmental issues, but also of humanitarian concerns. The Darkened Mirror complements the pristine waterscapes on view in the exhibition Fragile Waters by presenting recent work by international artists who address our conflicted relationship with water today. From their twenty-first-century points of view, they reveal an essential resource that is no longer merely threatened, but actively besieged: it is a troubling reflection of the contemporary moment. In their videos and installation work, these artists address such themes as water access and ownership in Cambodia; agricultural irrigation in the American Southwest; the ethical implications of desert settlements; river pollution in India; and the physical and political impact of climate change locally and globally. They draw urgent political and ecological debates into dialogue with aesthetics and participation. In doing so, they open a space for contemplation and action.

    Vibha Galhotra evoked a classic Hindu myth of rejuvenation in her poetic video Manthan (2015). Her subject is India’s Yamuna River, which rapid urbanization and unregulated sewage dumping have quickly made into one of the world’s most noxious rivers. In Cropped (2012), Dutch artist Gerco de Ruijter highlighted the surprising aesthetic impact of the central pivot irrigation system (a common agricultural practice that marks the land in circular patterns). He animated still images into a sequence that has a hypnotic and swelling urgency. The exhibition also includes work by Cambodian artist Khvay Samnang, Danish artist Jesper Just, and Bay Area artist Amy Balkin. In A People’s Archive of Sinking and Melting (2012–ongoing), Balkin makes this global threat personal: she invites museum visitors to contribute to her ongoing collection of physical objects from places directly threatened by climate change.

    New Company School Painting in India (ca. 1770–1850)
    Place: The Metropolitan Museum of Art - New York, 1000 Fifth Avenue, USA
    Date: Apr 10, 2017 to Oct 01, 2017
    Detail:

    As the British East India Company expanded its purview in India beyond trade to include diplomacy and administration, greater numbers of officers, and eventually their families, were stationed in the region. Many became active patrons of the arts, giving rise to the so-called Company School of painting—or simply Company painting—of the 18th and 19th centuries.

    Responding to their patrons\' European tastes, scientific interests, and sense of discovery, Indian artists—some previously trained in late-Mughal techniques of painting—evolved their styles to create large-scale images of India\'s flora, fauna, people, and landscape. While formal natural studies comprise a major genre of Company painting, other idioms, such as the picturesque—which offered romanticized views of landscape and architecture—also flourished.

    This exhibition brings together works from The Met collection that have never before been shown together and features the debut of two recent acquisitions.

    New KANBAN: Traditional shop signs of Japan
    Place: Mingei International Museum - San Diego, Balboa Park, 1439 El Prado, California, USA
    Date: Apr 15, 2017 to Oct 08, 2017
    Detail: Kanban, a fusion of art and commerce, refers to the traditional signs Japanese merchants displayed street side to advertise their presence, denote the products and services to be found inside, and to give individual identity and expression to the shop itself. Created from wood, bamboo, iron, paper, fabric, lacquer, and even stone, kanban form a rich, visual vocabulary of traditional advertising. Elongated panels of lacquered wood ornamented with elegantly inscribed calligraphy; whimsically carved three dimensional scenes of carp climbing waterfalls or munificent deities presiding over hoards of bounty; oversized, functional Buddhist prayer beads; stencil dyed segments of colored cloth fluttering in front of an open doorway, geta clogs; sword scabbards; iron furniture fittings; combs; parasols; writing brushes; images of seductive courtesans with painted faces and coiffed hair; and giant silk thread skeins are all signs and images that would have been a familiar sight on traditional Japanese commercial streets. This exhibition provides a rare opportunity to enter this world and to figuratively walk and shop the streets of traditional Japan.

    KANBAN is accompanied by a beautiful and comprehensive 176-page hardbound publication by Guest Curator Alan Scott Pate, with 155 illustrations and over 50 kanban represented. The exhibition and catalogue offer new insights into Japan’s commercial and artistic roots, the evolution of trade, the links between commerce and entertainment, and the emergence of mass consumer culture.

    New Common Pleasures: Art of Urban Life in Edo Japan
    Place: Seattle Art Museum - Seattle, 1300 First Avenue, Washington, USA
    Date: Apr 15, 2017 to Oct 22, 2017
    Detail: Japan saw an urban culture bloom during the Edo period (1603–1868). Residents in growing city centers, especially in Edo (present-day Tokyo), Kyoto, and Osaka, participated in many pastimes: theater, pleasure quarters, and festivals were among the most popular ones. Townspeople—made up of artisans and merchants, the two lower classes in the social hierarchy of the Edo period—became the catalyst of a vibrant artistic landscape.

    These paintings depict popular indulgences such as letting loose in the company of courtesans and seasonal events such as picnicking under cherry blossoms in the spring and dancing at festivals. The primary philosophical view of the time—“live for the moment”—fostered an aesthetic that is manifested in much of the art that engaged subjects dear to the townspeople’s sensibilities. Drawn from Seattle Art Museum as well as a private collection, the works on view showcase a diversity of leisure activities and common pleasures of ordinary people.

    New Henri Cartier-Bresson: India in Full Frame
    Place: The Rubin Museum of Art - New York, 150 West 17th St., USA
    Date: Apr 21, 2017 to Sep 04, 2017
    Detail: Displacement, political transformation, new nationalisms, the tension between urban and rural—India of the mid-twentieth century does not sound so distant from the world today. It was a time and place of change, captured expertly and in great depth by the pioneering photojournalist Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908–2004).

    In 1947 Cartier-Bresson co-founded the internationally renowned cooperative photographic agency Magnum Photos. Later that same year he undertook his first trip to India as part of a three-year stay in Asia. At the time, India was undergoing a massive political transition, having gained independence from British colonial rule and been partitioned from Pakistan. In January 1948 Cartier-Bresson traveled to Delhi to meet with one of the key players in that transition, India’s great leader Mahatma Gandhi. It would be one of Gandhi’s final meetings before the leader’s assassination at the hands of a Hindu nationalist on January 30.

    The resulting photos of Gandhi’s last day of life and the events surrounding his funeral, which helped catapult Cartier-Bresson to international fame, are part of a selection of 69 photographs from the photographer’s travels to India shared in the exhibition. They reflect his abiding interest in the people and sites of India, including some examples of his “street photography” style that has influenced generations of photographers. Together they illustrate a master photographer’s perspective on transformative moments in Indian history.

    New Japanese Painting: A Walk in the Countryside
    Place: LACMA - Los Angeles, 5905 Wilshire Blvd., California, USA
    Date: May 13, 2017 to Sep 10, 2017
    Detail: Whereas European art often depicts nature as something to be feared—a place of wolves and specters—nature in Japanese art is respected, even revered, as an ideal retreat for those needing meditation or tranquility. Beginning in the Heian period (794–1185), nature developed into one of the most common themes in Japanese painting. Japanese Paintings: A Walk in Nature features 24 paintings on scrolls and screens spanning four centuries (16th to 20th), which depict nature painted from observation or from memory in adherence to established models. The exhibition, which includes deities finding space for meditation and joy within nature, flora and fauna, and human appreciation of nature within the setting of a garden, highlights works by representational artists from the Maruyama, Rimpa, and Literati schools, as well as pieces heavily influenced by Chinese masterpieces.

    New Dreams Of The Kings: A Jade Suit For Eternity: Treasures of the Han Dynasty from Xuzhou
    Place: China Institute - New York, 100 Washington Street, USA
    Date: May 25, 2017 to Nov 12, 2017
    Detail: In 201 BCE, the first emperor of the Han Dynasty knighted his younger brother as the first king of the Chu Kingdom, which was centered in Peng Cheng, today’s Xuzhou, in northern Jiangsu Province. Ruling under the emperor’s protection, and given special exemption from imperial taxes, elites in this Kingdom enjoyed a lavish lifestyle. Twelve generations of kings lived, died, and were buried in sumptuous tombs carved into the nearby rocky hills. Since the mid 20th Century, nearly hundred tombs were excavated, revealing contents that testify to the Chu kings’ affluence, as well as their beliefs in immortality and the afterlife. One of the most stunning finds was an elaborate jade sarcophagi burial suit, assembled from thousands of pieces of jade, the precious stone adored by Chinese people since the Neolithic period as an auspicious material that could ensure immortality. This exhibition will feature the jade suit, and other tomb contents that highlight how these powerful and wealthy kings prepared for death and envisioned their afterlife to come.

    New Polished to Perfection: Japanese Cloisonné from the Collection of Donald K. Gerber and Sueann E. Sherry
    Place: LACMA - Los Angeles, 5905 Wilshire Blvd., California, USA
    Date: May 28, 2017 to Feb 04, 2018
    Detail: The 1830s marked the beginning of a renaissance in Japanese cloisonné production. Though small objects incorporating enamels were produced in Japan prior to the 19th century, a new generation of artisans developed techniques that enabled the creation of three-dimensional vessels, greater flexibility in surface design, and a number of different enameling styles. During the “golden age” of Japanese cloisonné production (approximately 1880–1910), intricate decorations, sophisticated use of color, expanding varieties of form, and flawless surface finishes became the hallmarks of Japanese cloisonné wares.

    Polished to Perfection presents approximately 150 works from the collection of Donald K. Gerber and Sueann E. Sherry. Built over the course of more than four decades, the collection contains works crafted by the most accomplished Japanese cloisonné masters of the time including Namikawa Yasuyuki (1845–1927), Namikawa Sōsuke (1847–1919), Hayashi Kodenji (1831–1915), and Kawade Shibatarō (1856–1921). The artists represented in this exhibition raised the art of cloisonné enamel to a level of unparalleled technical and artistic perfection.

    New Mika Tajima / MATRIX 177: After Life
    Place: Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art - Hartford, 600 Main St., Connecticut, USA
    Date: Jun 01, 2017 to Sep 03, 2017
    Detail: For MATRIX 177, New York artist Mika Tajima presents an illuminated space that responds to the sentiment of future human expressions modeled by computer algorithms. The installation employs natural language processing and sentiment analysis to consider a future modeled after life itself. The rise of such predictive technology in military and e-commerce applications underlines how speculations of the future radically shape our perceptions, desires and decisions in the present. After Life is a contemplation of an escape from a life thoroughly scraped and decoded.

    At the center of the exhibition is a hanging light installation controlled by a computer linguistics program. The color and intensity of the lights shift in real time to algorithmic predictions of future human sentiment. The changing light conditions in the exhibition create a shifting viewing experience of both painting and sculptural elements. Situated like a lone island in the exhibition is a bench-seating form similar to the designs now ubiquitous in airports, cafes, and bank lounges. In the shadows, transparent paintings on the wall reflect the light and objects in the exhibition while concealing themselves from full visibility.

    The elements in the exhibition track the production of an embodied subject as both a target of ortho-architectonic control and the soft governmentality of computational life.

    New Sacred Spaces with The Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room
    Place: The Rubin Museum of Art - New York, 150 West 17th St., USA
    Date: Jun 09, 2017 to Oct 16, 2017
    Detail: Across the globe people use ritual and spiritual practice to connect with worlds beyond their immediate experience. This iteration of Sacred Spaces is dedicated to a selection of these transcendent and devotional practices.

    The Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room re-creates an immersive sacred space in which visitors can encounter Himalayan art as it is used in practice. Spend a quiet moment in the Shrine Room installation and become vividly aware of how the art relates to the fundamental Buddhist acts of offering, prayer, contemplation, and devotion.

    An acoustically treated listening room pays tribute to the work of the composer and musician Pauline Oliveros (1932–2016), who pioneered the spiritual practice of Deep Listening. This practice is a form of meditation in which \"attention is directed to the interplay of sounds and silences or the sound/silence continuum.\" We invite you to learn about Deep Listening through self-directed exercises Oliveros titled Sonic Meditations or as participants in scheduled workshops led by certified instructors.

    A mesmerizing video installation evokes the active sacred atmosphere of Shravanabelagola, India. The video documents a ritual that takes place every twelve years, when practitioners of Jainism—an Indian religion with a strong focus on compassion and non-violence—bathe a massive, tenth-century stone sculpture in purifying substances.

Highlighting key stages in the modern history of Japanese bamboo art, the exhibition will bring into sharp focus the transformations of styles and plaiting techniques, while introducing the main lineages of bamboo masters and showing the emergence of a contemporary bamboo art scene.

    New China’s 8 Brokens Puzzles of the Treasured Past
    Place: Museum of Fine Arts - Boston, 465 Huntington Avenue, Massachusetts, USA
    Date: Jun 16, 2017 to Oct 29, 2017
    Detail: The first-ever exhibition dedicated to bapo (or “eight brokens”) painting, a revolutionary artistic genre that emerged in China during the mid-19th century. Eight is a lucky number in Chinese culture, and bapo refers to the damaged cultural ephemera hyper-realistically depicted in the paintings—worm-eaten calligraphies, partial book pages, burned paintings, remnants of rubbings and torn-open letters. They are usually arranged in a haphazard, collage-like composition, created with Chinese ink and colors on paper or silk. When bapo emerged, this unexpected imagery was radically distinct from classical Chinese landscape and figure painting, and became popular among an aspiring, urban middle class delighted by its visual trickery and sophistication. After 1949, the art form was largely forgotten, but has recently been rediscovered by contemporary artists and collectors. The rediscovery of bapo has prompted curators to now decipher the puzzle of the meaning of the images. This exhibition presents some of the finest examples of bapo paintings dating back to the 19th century, as well as a contemporary work by artist Geng Xuezhi, and includes new acquisitions and loans from museums and private collections located in the United States and Asia. They are interspersed with three-dimensional decorative and functional objects that display bapo imagery.

    New The World Is Sound
    Place: The Rubin Museum of Art - New York, 150 West 17th St., USA
    Date: Jun 16, 2017 to Jan 08, 2018
    Detail: Learn to listen with your whole body.

    Visitors will explore how sound and our sense of hearing shape our daily lives, our traditions, our history, and all of existence. The World Is Sound employs sound in new ways to animate and intensify the experience of art in the Rubin\'s collection. Organized cyclically—from creation to death to rebirth—the exhibition explores different dimensions of sound and listening and its many functions in Tibetan Buddhism.

    Featuring work by more than 20 artists, The World Is Sound juxtaposes new site-specific commissions and works by prominent contemporary sound artists with historical objects from the museum\'s collection of Tibetan Buddhist art to encourage reflection on how we listen and to challenge entrenched ways of thinking.

    The Museum space itself will become an instrument of transformation. The centerpiece of the exhibition is Le Corps Sonore (Sound Body), an immersive, site-specific installation composed for the Rubin Museum\'s iconic spiral staircase by the pioneering electronic sound artists Éliane Radigue, Laetitia Sonami, and Bob Bielecki. Ambient drone sounds inspired by Buddhist philosophy are \"tuned\" to the building, and will ascend and descend as visitors wind their way up the staircase. The subtlety and ephemerality of the sounds prepare the listener for understanding a core tenet of Buddhist philosophy, where music is a metaphor for change and impermanence. As with the entire exhibition, Le Corps Sonore invites visitors to slow down and consider their bodily engagement with sound, space, and their individual perceptions.

    The exhibition features works by contemporary artists including C. Spencer Yeh, Christine Sun Kim, Ernst Karel, Hildegard Westerkamp, John Giorno, Jules Gimbrone, MSHR, Nate Wooley, Pauline Oliveros, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, and Samita Sinha.

    The exhibition also includes Tibetan Buddhist ritual music from several monasteries in Nepal and India, the voices of Rubin visitors recorded in the OM Lab, and software and acoustic design by Terence Caulkins of Arup. Daniel Neumann is Lead Acoustic Designer for the exhibition.

    An audio tour, print and online magazine, and series of public programs will complement the exhibition.

    New Flower Power
    Place: Asian Art Museum - San Francisco, 200 Larkin St, California, USA
    Date: Jun 23, 2017 to Oct 01, 2017
    Detail: From the refined to the revolutionary, find meaning in every bloom.

    During the Summer of Love, flowers became powerful symbols of peace, a concept plucked from Buddhist art. More than merely decorative, floral imagery has helped convey ideas from the refined to the revolutionary for thousands of years.

    In Asian art, flowers speak a language all their own. Where a lotus blooms, a rosebud is clasped, or cherry blossoms flutter to the ground, a story is told — if you know how to read it.

    This summer, uncover the hidden meanings of flowers in Asian art. Delve into the symbolism of six significant blooms: the lotus, plum blossom, cherry blossom, chrysanthemum, tulip, and rose. The enduring importance of these flowers is shared through gloriously gilded screens, sleek lacquers, rare porcelains, striking sculptures, pop art, and sensory-igniting, participatory contemporary installations that speak to today’s issues, from climate change to social activism.

    New Cosmic Buddhas in the Himalayas
    Place: The Met Fifth Avenue - New York, 1000 Fifth Avenue, New York, USA
    Date: Jun 24, 2017 to Dec 10, 2017
    Detail: Exhibition Overview
    Being reborn in one of the heavens inhabited by a living Buddha offered a clear path to enlightenment for Himalayan Buddhist communities. Vairochana, the emanation of the historic Buddha Shakyamuni, sat at the center of the cosmos, while each of the Pure Lands in the four cardinal directions was presided over by a celestial Buddha. The vast and complex Mahayana and tantric pantheon of Buddhist gods and goddesses are emanations of these living Buddhas, while individual deities associated with them personify ideas such as compassion, abundance, learning, or protection. This cosmic organization gave a popular goddess like the savior Tara a clear place within the Buddhist pantheon. At the same time, an advanced tantric practitioner could find a powerful esoteric deity, such as Hevajra, conceptualized in an unambiguous context.

    This exhibition draws together works of the highest caliber and places Vairochana at the center of the gallery, and the directional cosmic Buddhas on the four walls along with some of their most significant manifestations, presenting this complex Buddhist pantheon of deities in a startlingly simple way.

    New Hiroshige: Famous Views in the 60-Odd Provinces
    Place: Indianapolis Museum of Art - Indianapolis, 4000 Michigan Road, Indiana, USA
    Date: Jul 21, 2017 to Apr 01, 2018
    Detail: Take a journey with renowned Japanese artist Utagawa Hiroshige through his breathtaking landscape paintings of the 66 provinces of Japan. Completed in 1856, Hiroshige’s Famous Views in the 60-Odd Provinces captured the beauty of Japan in vivid detail, just as leisurely travel was taking hold in the country. From famous landmarks, to beachside cliffs, Hiroshige provided a window into every corner of 19th-century Japan. In a novel approach for landscape prints, Hiroshige used vertical compositions rather than the usual horizontal. This allowed him to emphasize deep distances, towering heights, and unique vantage points.

    New Zhou Rong's Awn-2, Violet
    Place: Newark Museum - Newark, 49 Washington Street, New Jersey, USA
    Date: Jul 24, 2017 to Jul 31, 2018
    Detail: Zhou Rong\'s monumental sculpture, Awn-2 Violet, is now on view at the Newark Museum\'s sculpture garden. This time lapse video shows how the sculpture was installed at the Newark Museum by ArtCore. Other artists represented in the garden include David Smith, Tony Smith and Geroge Segal. The soft contours, strong color, and large scale of this abstract sculpture draw the eye—pointedly contrasting its environment. The slick reflective skin animates the surroundings making them part of the work while the convex and concave surfaces cast shifting shadows as sunlight moves across its planes. The work is one of a series (other editions of similar form with varying sizes and materials are available through the gallery) that plays with positive and negative space.

    Zhou Rong was born in Changzhou, Jiangsu Province and currently lives and works in Hangzhou, Beijing. She is an emerging contemporary sculptor and ink painter, and graduated with a degree in printmaking from the Chinese Academy of Art in Hangzhou in 2014. Like all FitzGerald Fine Arts artists, Zhou Rong’s work sits at the junction of traditional methods and themes and contemporary concerns and motifs.

    Unlike other artists on the FitzGerald Fine Arts’ roster, Zhou Rong does not engage in strictly figurative representations of this intersection of past and present. Instead, she forgoes traditional objectification of nature-derived subjects in favor of a conceptual dialect. Zhou Rong’s surrealist works probe both changing gender roles and the mass urbanization rapidly reshaping Mainland China. In her ominous monochrome ink paintings, negative space is given equal credence as defined silhouette – positioning a psychological tension between viewer and subject.

    Her sculptural pieces draw upon the same themes while leveraging surprising uses of negative and positive space to evoke the inherent difference and connection between sharp and soft, strong and tender, birth and death.

    New By the Light of the Moon: Nocturnal Japanese Prints
    Place: Art Institute of Chicago - Chicago, 111 S. Michigan Ave., Illinois, USA
    Date: Jul 29, 2017 to Oct 08, 2017
    Detail: Over the centuries, Japanese print designers have risen to the challenge of capturing the night in all its various moods. Whether presented as a boundary, a presence, or a frame of mind, the hours of darkness have provided a rich subject for the exploration of aesthetic ideas and artistic practice.

    In the earliest prints featured in this exhibition, the darkness of the late evening serves as an almost theatrical backdrop where nighttime is a setting for action. In works by Okumura Masanobu (1686–1764) and Suzuki Harunobu (1725?–1770), the night is often rendered as a solid wall of black placed behind figures, lit only by the glow of lanterns or hovering fireflies.

    By the 19th century, the evening itself becomes the focus, defined not by the absence of the sun but by the presence of the moon and stars, whose modest light seems to inspire a more philosophical approach. This is especially true in the prints of Utagawa Hiroshige (1797–1858), whose night skies, seemingly unlit, arch over scenic landscapes where townspeople and travelers are reduced in both size and stature, making them spectators as well as participants.

    This refinement of nocturnal perception is developed further in the 20th century, where artists explore the complexity of night shadows and the moon’s reflection on water. Perhaps no artist created more haunting images in Japanese printmaking than Kawase Hasui (1883–1957), an artist obsessed with capturing the evening’s aura. In his hands, the faint light seems to emanate from landscape itself, heightening the intensity of vision rather than diminishing it.

    In Hasui’s work and in all the nocturnal prints in this presentation—each drawn from the Art Institute’s permanent collection—the complexity of the dark is more clearly brought to light.

    New How to Make the Universe Right: The Art of Priests and Shamans from Vietnam and Southern China
    Place: Fowler Museum - Los Angeles, 308 Charles E Young Dr N, California, USA
    Date: Jul 30, 2017 to Jan 07, 2018
    Detail: How to Make the Universe Right presents a large selection of rare religious scrolls, ceremonial clothing, and ritual objects of the Yao, Tày, Sán Dìu, Cao Lan, Sán Chay, Nùng, and other populations of northern Vietnam and southern China. Each group has their own traditions of educating and initiating priests and shamans, who serve as intermediaries between the physical and spiritual worlds and between the community and deities, in order to make the universe right through healing, balancing the forces of nature, and communicating with ancestors. The Yao\'s practices are most prominently associated with Daoism, a religious and philosophical tradition of Chinese origin, while for the other peoples, Daoist beliefs are combined with aspects of Buddhism, Tantrism, and Confucianism.

    The works of art in the exhibition, most of which date to the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, provide the material foundation for the regional manifestations of religious practices. Examples in the exhibition include vibrantly colored and intricately embroidered ritual robes and headdresses worn by priests, and a spectacular set of eighteen scrolls of elaborately painted deities, made for those engaged in the higher levels of initiation. The exhibition also features a display evoking the shrines constructed for ceremonies, a film on contemporary religious practices in the region, and a selection of scrolls highlighting their recent conservation and what this has revealed.

    All of the works on view are part of the Barry and Jill Kitnick Collection generously donated by the Kitnicks to the Fowler Museum at UCLA in 2015.

    New Chaekgeori: Pleasure of Possessions in Korean Painted Screens
    Place: The Cleveland Museum of Art - Cleveland, 11150 East Boulevard, Ohio, USA
    Date: Aug 05, 2017 to Nov 05, 2017
    Detail: Chaekgeori: Pleasure of Possessions in Korean Painted Screens is the first international exhibition in the US to explore the artistic evolution of a distinctive pictorial genre called chaekgeori (pronounced check-oh-ree). Translated as \"books and things,\" chaekgeori refers to a style of still-life painting, first developed in Korea around the late 1700s, that creates the illusion of three dimensions on a two-dimensional surface. By the late 1800s, chaekgeori screens had become a popular furnishing item to decorate the Korean collector\'s studio, displaying his high aesthetic taste and socioeconomic status. The show invites viewers to witness an exciting moment when Koreans became active participants in global consumerism through their passionate collecting activities.

    New Emperors, Scholars, and Temples: Tastemakers of China’s Ming and Qing Dynasties
    Place: The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art - Kansas City, 4525 Oak Street, Missouri, USA
    Date: Aug 10, 2017 to Sep 24, 2017
    Detail: During the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties, the arts of China reached full maturity. Painting, calligraphy, porcelain and textiles flourished, and new styles and techniques emerged. The imperial court, scholars and temples supported this profusion of creativity, each establishing distinctive, yet overlapping artistic styles.

    Emperors held court in the Forbidden City in Beijing in unparalleled splendor. Courtiers, empresses and concubines wore extravagant garb and beautiful jewelry. Across the empire, an educated class of scholars pursued elegant and cultured lifestyles. Buddhism was also an inspiration for the arts. Thousands of ornate temples stored precious relics and images of Buddhist deities.

    Presenting rarely seen objects from the Nelson-Atkins Chinese collection, the exhibition explores currents of taste during this five hundred-year period.

    New Karen LaMonte: Floating World
    Place: Chazen Museum of Art - Madison, 800 University Avenue, Wisconsin, USA
    Date: Aug 11, 2017 to Sep 24, 2017
    Detail: Life-sized kimonos cast in glass, ceramic, bronze, and rusted iron will fill the Rowland Galleries for Karen LaMonte: Floating World at the Chazen Museum of Art, August 11–September 24, 2017.

    Throughout her career LaMonte has used clothing as a metaphor and as a way to explore the human body without depicting the human body. In 2007 LaMonte spent seven months in Kyoto on a fellowship through the Japan-United States Friendship Commission. Studying all aspects of kimono production—from weaving to construction, function, rituals, and meaning—the artist then spent six years researching and working in the studio to complete her Floating World project.

    A direct result of the time in Japan was her desire to make the sculptures in ceramic. To work life-size and include details of fabric texture, stitching, and complex undercuts, completely new technologies were required. LaMonte achieved this during two extended research and development residencies at the European Ceramics Work Center in Den Bosch, Netherlands. The cast-glass sculptures are fabricated at foundries in the Czech Republic and take one year to complete—two months of which is simply annealing in the kiln. The bronze and rusted iron sculptures are cast in Italy.

    LaMonte worked with live models for her previous work depicting Western clothing. For the kimono pieces, she built a mannequin based on biometric data. She selected the measurements for the 50th percentile of 40-year-old Japanese women in the year 2000. LaMonte says the mannequin is the exact average Japanese female; the exact everywoman or no-woman.

    New Maki Haku and the Poetry of Form
    Place: Honolulu Museum of Art - Honolulu, 900 S Beretania St, Hawaii, USA
    Date: Aug 24, 2017 to Oct 22, 2017
    Detail: Exhibition Overview

    Born in Ibaraki Prefecture, Maejima Tadaaki, also known as Maki Haku (1924–2000), was one of the most internationally prominent members of the Creative Print (sōsaku hanga) movement, which emphasized the need for Japanese print artists to create their own works without relying upon specialists such as woodblock carvers, as designers of ukiyo-e prints traditionally did throughout the Edo period (1615–1868).

    During the Pacific War (1941–1945), Maejima was enlisted in the Japanese Air Force as a kamikaze pilot, but the war ended before he was assigned a suicide mission. In the late 1950s, he began to produce prints and assumed the pseudonym Maki Haku (literally, “white roll,” with connotations similar to “airhead”) to promote himself as an eccentric artist who lacked academic training.

    Maki Haku’s embossed compositions, featuring either a stylized Chinese character or a quintessentially Japanese symbol such as a persimmon, caught the attention of art patrons throughout the world, including the Honolulu-based author Oliver Statler (1915–2002). In 1967, Maki represented Japan in the Venice Biennale. See the evolution of his style in this selection of works from throughout his career.

    Made possible by the Robert F. Lange Foundation.

    New Streams and Mountains without End: Landscape Traditions of China
    Place: The Met Fifth Avenue - New York, 1000 Fifth Avenue, New York, USA
    Date: Aug 26, 2017 to Jan 06, 2019
    Detail: Showcasing more than 120 Chinese landscape paintings in three rotations, the exhibition will offer gateways into the tradition, drawing out distinctions between types of landscape that may not be obvious at first glance. What initially appears to be a simple mountain dwelling, for example, is revealed to be the villa of the painter's friend, which encodes a wish for his happy retirement; what seems at first to be a simple study in dry brushwork turns out to be an homage to an old master, a sign of reverence for what had come before.

    New After Darkness: Southeast Asian Art in the Wake of History
    Place: Asia Society - New York, 725 Park Avenue, USA
    Date: Sep 08, 2017 to Jan 21, 2018
    Detail: After Darkness: Southeast Asian Art in the Wake of History considers how contemporary art from societies in transition may be read as an expression of the ambiguous and sometimes contentious relationship between individual artistic practices and sociopolitical context. The exhibition explores the cultural repercussions of political ruptures through sculpture, photography, video, and mixed-media installations by seven contemporary artists and one artist group from three Southeast Asian countries—Indonesia, Myanmar, and Vietnam—whose lives and art practices have intersected with defining historical moments.

    Featured artists: FX Harsono, Tintin Wulia, Angki Purbandono, Htein Lin, Nge Lay, Dinh Q. Lê, The Propeller Group, and Nguyen Thi Thanh Mai

    New Picturing History: Ledger Drawings of the Plains Indians
    Place: Fairfield University Art Museum (FUAM) - Fairfield, 1073 North Benson Road, Connecticut, USA
    Date: Sep 27, 2017 to Dec 20, 2017
    Detail: In the second half of the nineteenth century, artists from the Plains Indian peoples (Lakota, Cheyenne, Arapaho and others dwelling in the Western United States and Canada) produced an extraordinarily rich and distinctive body of drawings chronicling battles, rituals, and winsome if sometimes jarring events of everyday life. Known as Ledger Drawings because they were done on the pages of commercially produced account books, these striking images, many bearing pictographic signatures, are executed in ink, graphite, and colored pencil and watercolor. Some favor flat, stylized forms and a stark economy of means, while others show a lyrical predilection for rhythmic movement, minute descriptive and narrative detail, and dense, mosaic-like surface patterns. What all share is their makers’ acute powers of observation and ambition to record and describe recognizable people, places, things and events—to eloquently picture and record history as it transpired.

    Ledger Drawings are virtually unknown other than to a small group of specialists and cognoscenti, and with rare exceptions they have been studied foremost as anthropological and ethnographic documents rather than as artistic creations. Yet the medium—pencil and watercolor on paper—as well as the function and absorbing subject matter align these works with the centuries long western artistic practice of drawing “stories.” The images find an equally resonant context in the venerable tradition of picture chronicles, which extends back even further in time. Featuring some fifty Ledger Drawings, this exhibition presents these evocative works as graphic masterpieces in the long and rich history of drawing.

    New FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures
    Place: Museum of Chinese in America - New York, 215 Centre Street, New York, USA
    Date: Oct 05, 2017 to Mar 25, 2018
    Detail: As a way to actively engage visitors in a conversation about immigration issues, FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures will present the story of the passengers of the Golden Venture, a ship carrying 286 undocumented Chinese immigrants that ran aground in New York City in 1993. Selected from MOCA’s collection, over forty sculptures collectively created by the immigrants while detained for years at York County Prison will be on display. Through symbolic representations that include caged birds and American eagles, the sculptures give shape to both the quantitative and qualitative time spent waiting for uncertain legal outcomes. For most of these sculptures, their forms are Chinese folk art, but their subject matter is uniquely American. Idiomatic expressions and art-related theories of the “fold” as a form, action and metaphor will be used as an organizing principle for the exhibition’s content and design. In addition to archival materials, recently recorded oral history interviews with many of the immigrants and their supporters will also be played on overhead speakers to provide multiple perspectives on the attainment of the American Dream.

    New Hard Bodies: Contemporary Japanese Lacquer Sculpture
    Place: Minneapolis Institute of Art - Minneapolis, 2400 Third Avenue South, Minnesota, USA
    Date: Oct 07, 2017 to Feb 10, 2018
    Detail: It’s an art nearly as old as civilization itself. Since the Neolithic era, artisans in East Asia have coated bowls, cups, boxes, baskets, and other utilitarian objects with a natural polymer distilled from the sap of the rhus verniciflua, known as the lacquer tree. Lacquerware was—and still is—prized for its sheen, a lustrous beauty that artists learned to accentuate over the centuries with inlaid gold, silver, mother-of-pearl, and other precious materials.

    Since the late 1980s, this tradition has been challenged. A small but enterprising circle of lacquer artists have pushed the medium in entirely new and dynamic directions by creating large-scale sculptures, works that are both conceptually innovative and superbly exploitive of lacquer’s natural virtues. Thirty works by 16 artists comprise the first-ever comprehensive exhibition of contemporary Japanese lacquer sculpture. They have all been drawn from the Clark Collections at Mia, the only collection in the world to feature this extraordinary new form.

    New Boundless Peaks: Ink Paintings by Minol Araki
    Place: Minneapolis Institute of Art - Minneapolis, 2400 Third Avenue South, Minnesota, USA
    Date: Oct 07, 2017 to Feb 12, 2018
    Detail: Renowned as an industrial designer, Minol Araki (1928–2010) was also a prolific painter with a firm grounding in East Asian painting traditions. Born in China to Japanese parents, and active professionally in New York and Taipei, Araki created an immense body of ink paintings that reimagined tradition and straddled East and West.

    This exhibition is organized around five mid-career, large-scale works—monumental compositions, each of which stretches more than 70 feet—depicting landscapes, dragons, snow monkeys, and lotus ponds. Each painting is complemented by early and late works that marry influences as disparate as the eccentric Chinese painter Bada Shanren (c. 1626–1705), the Lithuanian-American artist Ben Shahn (1898–1969), Araki’s mentor, the renowned Chinese traditionalist painter Zhang Daqian (1899–1983), and medieval Japanese Zen painters.

    New Resounding: Bells of Ancient China
    Place: Freer Gallery of Art / Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution - Washington, D.C., 1050 Independence Ave SW, USA
    Date: Oct 14, 2017 to Dec 14, 2017
    Detail: Musical innovations in the Bronze Age meld with today’s digital technology in this interactive exploration of ancient Chinese bells. Thousands of years ago, Chinese musicians worked with foundry technicians to cast matched sets of bronze bells of different sizes to produce a range of tones. They developed oval-shaped bells that, depending on where they were struck, produced two distinct pitches with an intentional interval between them. Resounding investigates this advancement, with displays of early instruments and a bell set discovered in a Chinese tomb, videos of ancient bells being played, and chances to compose your own music on bronze bells.

    New Empress Dowager Cixi: Selections from the Summer Palace
    Place: Bowers Museum - Santa Ana, 2002 North Main Street, California, USA
    Date: Nov 12, 2017 to Mar 11, 2018
    Detail: Empress Dowager Cixi (1835-1908) stands in the center of modern Chinese history. While most commonly understood as a politician, this formidable matriarch was also introduced to Western audience or reader as a connoisseur, patron and even creator of art in the early twentieth century, a phenomenon that interestingly fell unnoticed in modern scholarship.

    Place: China Institute - New York, 100 Washington Street, USA
    Date: Feb 08, 2018 to Dec 02, 2018
    Detail: Mountains, in Chinese legends, are the pillars that hold up the sky. Mountains were seen as places that nurture life.

    New A Good Reputation Endures Forever: The Chinese Labour Corps on the Western Front
    Place: Durham University Oriental Museum - Durham, Elvet Hill Rd, United Kingdom
    Date: Apr 07, 2017 to Sep 24, 2017
    Detail: An exhibition exploring the role of the thousands of Chinese who risked their lives alongside the British armed forces during the First World War.

    96,000 Chinese men volunteered to work for Britain in the First World War as part of the Chinese Labour Corps. They undertook essential and often dangerous work behind the lines on the western front and thousands lost their lives. Yet their contribution was barely acknowledged at the end of the war and in the years that have followed they have been largely written out of histories of the war. They have been described as the \'forgotten of the forgotten\'.

    This exhibition examines the vital role of the Chinese Labour Corps using historic photographs and objects created by the men at the front.

    New Lee Ungno, the man of crowds
    Place: Cernuschi Museum, Asian Art Museum of Paris - Paris, 7 Avenue Velasquez, France
    Date: Jun 08, 2017 to Nov 19, 2017
    Detail: Lee Ungno (1904-1989) was one of the most important Asian painters of the twentieth century, at the crossroads of Far East and Europe, of past and present.In the 1950s, he abandoned traditional art for modern, abstract forms, thus playing a pioneering role in the foundation of contemporary Korean art.

    Later figuring as a member of the Parisian avant-garde alongside Hartung, Soulages and Zao Wou-Ki, he was also a teacher of ink painting who inspired an entire generation of artists.

    His exploration of the relationship between calligraphy and abstraction in the seventies gave rise to the emblematic theme of his work: Crowds. They constituted the symbol of budding democracy in South Korea.

    Since 1971, the Cernuschi Museum has been home to the oriental painting academy founded by Lee Ungno, and the museum collections contain over a hundred of his works made between 1954 and 1989. A selection of these works in the exhibition will allow visitors to discover a prolific opus with communicative energy.

    New Palaces and jungle – Miniature painting and handicrafts from India 1600s-1800s
    Place: Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities - Stockholm, Tyghusplan, Skeppsholmen, Sweden
    Date: Jun 13, 2017 to Oct 01, 2017
    Detail: The exhibition features beautiful and detailed paintings and handicrafts created between the 1600s and 1800s in the area that we now call India. The artists and craftsmen created works that were commissioned by people in resource-rich environments, such as the Muslim Mughal court (1526-1858) and regional Hindu and Muslim courts. During this period, the whole of South Asia was colonised by armed European trading companies – primarily British. These environments also contained people who either commissioned or purchased miniature paintings and handicraft products.

    During the majority of the period represented in the exhibition, the Mughal Empire came under attack from both native and foreign (Iranian and European) forces, and artists moved between studios in order to find new commissions. They created miniature paintings that captured fragments of India\'s multifaceted cultural history, from palaces to the jungle.

    New Creative impression: Japanese woodblock prints from the 1950s-60s
    Place: Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities - Stockholm, Tyghusplan, Skeppsholmen, Sweden
    Date: Jun 27, 2017 to Dec 31, 2017
    Detail: When many hear the term \"Japanese art,\" many think of woodcuts. In the Japanese collections of the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities, there are over 1,300 woodcuts from the late 1600s-1800s and around 60 from the 20th century. Japanese woodcuts have been widely famous in the West since the mid-1800s. Indeed, the woodcut genre inspired a renewal of the visual arts in the West.

    In the permanent Japan exhibition at the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities, objects and images tell a story of the country\'s history and peoples. There is also a gallery that gives visitors a unique opportunity to create smaller displays of light-sensitive and fragile items that can only be exhibited for a limited time.

    For six months, we have placed a small selection of woodcut from the 1950s to 1960s on view. These are the kind commonly known as \"creative prints\" (sōsaku hanga). This type of woodcut is especially known from the early 1900s to the 1960s.

    In the majority of the production of woodblock prints, artists collaborated with publishers, printers and wood block carvers; and the artist participated in the design. Artists in the \"creative print\" movement, however, often often carved, and sometimes even printed, their own works. Many of them use the woodcut technique in a personal and expressive way. Usually, sōsaku hanga-artists are educated in Western art techniques and sometimes work with Western printing techniques. Several have been successful in overseas, especially in America. Some work abstract, others imaginative. Sōsaku hanga-artists\' pictures are borne out of Japanese culture, but are equally part of the global art world, sometimes strikingly contemporary.

    In this exhibition it is now is possible to see works by famous artists such as Maki Haku (1924-2000), Ryuji Kosaka (1912-1972) and Saitō Kiyoshi (1907-1997).

    Date: Sep 29, 2017 to Jan 28, 2018
    Detail: The 2015 earthquake that struck Nepal, not only caused human devastation, but was also a cultural catastrophe. It damaged and destroyed much of Nepal’s unique cultural heritage, including monuments within the UNESCO Kathmandu Valley World Heritage Site.

    In 2015 a Durham University led team, in partnership with UNESCO and the Department of Archaeology, Government of Nepal, undertook a season of post-disaster archaeological assessment of earthquake damaged monuments within the UNESCO World Heritage Site, including the nationally important and symbolic Kasthamandap. They returned to complete their work on the site in November and December 2016 with the support of the National Geographic Society and a grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s Global Challenges Research Fund.

    This photographic exhibition will tell the story of the Kasthamandap, from its origins to its collapse to its renewal. Illustrated through archive photographic collections and the personal testimonies and photographs of first responders and Nepali heritage professionals, it will be interwoven with photographs of recent discoveries made during excavation by the Durham-led team.

    Place: Museum für Asiatische Kunst - Berlin, Kulturforum, Matthäikirchplatz, Germany
    Date: Oct 12, 2017 to Jan 07, 2018

Portrait painting has a history of over 2000 years in China. In the period from 1600 to 1900 it experienced a heyday, stimulated by the arrival of Italian Jesuit painters around 1600, bringing with them European portrait-painting techniques. Presenting an unparalleled selection of over 100 portraits from the collections of the Palace Museum in Beijing and the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, the exhibition covers a span of 500 years, focusing particularly on the Qing dynasty. During this period portraiture reached a previously unknown level of variety, encompassing formal court and ancestor portraits, military portraits, and informal portraits of artists, officials and talented women.

    New Nestorian Crosses of the Yuan Dynasty
    Place: University Museum and Art Gallery - Hong Kong, 90 Bonham Road, Pokfulam, Hong Kong
    Date: Jun 10, 2016 to Dec 31, 2022
    Detail: The University of Hong Kong’s (HKU) Nestorian crosses were assembled by a Mr. F. A. Nixon who served as a British postal commissioner in Beijing in the 1930s and 1940s. Subsequently the collection was acquired by the Lee Hysan Foundation and donated to Hong Kong University in 1961.

    Nestorian bronze crosses were cast in the Ordos region in north-west China (Inner Mongolia) during the Yuan dynasty (1272–1368). They measure between 3 and 8 cm in height, are flat plaque-like ornaments with an outline in high relief and have a loop on the back suggesting that they were used as personal seals and were worn on the body. The loop facilitates a strapping to human clothing or girdles. The fine motifs of the cast Christian and Buddhist symbols and the rare survival of red-coloured ink deposits in intermittent lower parts of the design, suggested that these seals were used as chops and transferred their individual designs by printing them on other matters. Although all crosses are cast, the Nestorian crosses all seem to be unique and are, in fact, characteristic for their individual designs.

    New Nestorian Crosses of the Yuan Dynasty
    Place: University Museum and Art Gallery, The University of Hong Kong - Hong Kong, 90 Bonham Road, Pokfulam, Hong Kong
    Date: Jun 10, 2016 to Dec 31, 2022
    Detail: The University of Hong Kong’s (HKU) Nestorian crosses were assembled by a Mr. F. A. Nixon who served as a British postal commissioner in Beijing in the 1930s and 1940s. Subsequently the collection was acquired by the Lee Hysan Foundation and donated to Hong Kong University in 1961.

Although all crosses are cast, the Nestorian crosses all seem to be unique and are, in fact, characteristic for their individual designs.

    Stylistically, all crosses fall into 4 different categories, many with mixed Christian and Buddhist motifs in the same artefact. The majority are executed in crucifix form—hence the group description as ‘crosses’—with either flat or round ends. Other ‘crosses’ in fact take the shape of animals, predominantly birds, but also hares and fish, as well as geometrical patterns, such as sun-like designs and miscellaneous Chinese seal-like forms.

Over the years, Dr. Ochiai has amassed an unparalleled collection of objects featuring the plant’s seeds.

    New “There are too many episodes of people coming here...”
    Place: National University of Singapore Museum - 21 Lower Kent Ridge Road, Singapore
    Date: Oct 26, 2016 to Aug 26, 2017
    Detail: “There are too many episodes of people coming here...” builds on the previous exhibition’s interest towards the textuality of exhibitions, bringing in additional materials by artists Charles Lim, Dennis Tan and Zai Kuning as a means to rewrite and open up newer points of departure. Each work or project may be considered in its own right and contexts, or may be read simultaneously as episodic units of meaning. This inclusion of newer materials by the aforementioned artists generates a new complexity for the exhibition, but at the same time points to the very conditions of the exhibitionary medium.

    The exhibition title is based on the words of Wak Ali, a custodian of a Muslim shrine that once stood on the banks of the Kallang River. It is at once an affirmation and a lament about the potentials of a site that may transform the individual regard, and the very contingency of positions on immediate experiences and commitments. An exhibition can only harbour meanings that are provisional and conditional, if it is to be an active site for a public with an active agency. Is this our purpose? If so, what of methods and practice?

    New Wu Guanzhong: A Walk through Nature

    New From the Ashes: Reviving Myanmar Celadon Ceramics
    Place: National University of Singapore Museum - 21 Lower Kent Ridge Road, Singapore
    Date: Feb 09, 2017 to Dec 30, 2017
    Detail: The exhibition introduces the ash glazed wares produced by Myanmar potters in the 15th century and the current attempts to revive and develop this tradition. Archaeological investigations in Lower Myanmar in the 1990s revealed historical kiln complexes specialised in making greenware (celadon). Identical wares uncovered on 15th-century shipwrecks in Southeast Asian waters and at land sites in the Persian Gulf suggest that Myanmar celadon was commercially distributed.

By exploring the locations of pirate bases such as those of Cheung Po Tsai, the exhibition will begin by tracing the development of China’s ports and trading routes from the Ming to the Qing dynasties.

    The exhibition will also shed light on the evolution of shipbuilding technologies within the context of sea piracy in the South China Sea during the Ming and Qing dynasties. It will show how shipbuilding technologies and piracy were inter-influential; shipbuilding technologies were improved in order to enhance maritime safety while at the same time, the tactics of pirate attacks were influenced to counter these technological innovations.

    In addition, this exhibition aims to provide a deeper understanding of the multiple concepts of piracy relative to time, place, and culture. For example, Zheng Zhilong and Zheng Changgong were considered to be pirates in the eyes of the Qing government.However, they were feted as heroes within the communities of Fujian.

    The Abegg-Stiftung’s special exhibition 2017 is dedicated to methods of analysing and treating textile works of art and explains what these can tell us about the production, function and history of such works. At the heart of the exhibition are medieval textiles from Central Asia and China, here presented to the public for the first time.

    New Exquisite Timbers: The Story of Chinese Architecture
    Place: Indianapolis Museum of Art - Indianapolis, 4000 Michigan Road, Indiana, USA
    Date: Sep 07, 2017
    Detail: Come and share with architectural historian Dr. James Glass, as he describes the rich and unexpected variety of architecture in China. Over 3,500 years an advanced form of timber construction took shape in China and was refined to an exquisite degree. Inventive buildings in brick and stone also made their mark, and some of the most splendid cities in the world were laid out and awed visitors. Traditional architecture in China means cities, palaces, walls, residences, temples, altars, and gardens. It also means sculpture, painting, and water. We will also touch on the impact of Western architecture in China and recent Modern architecture. The lecture will end with some illustrations of how Chinese architecture has influenced the United States.
