    Old 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.

    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.

    Old Gateway to Himalayan Art
    Place: The Rubin Museum of Art - New York, 150 West 17th St., USA
    Date: Jun 29, 2016 to May 28, 2018
    Detail: Gateway to Himalayan Art introduces visitors to the main forms, concepts, and meanings of Himalayan art represented in our collection. A large multimedia map orients the visitors and highlights cultural regions of a diverse Himalayan cultural sphere that includes parts of present day India, China, Nepal, Bhutan, and Mongolia. Visitors are invited to explore exemplary objects from the Museum’s collection, organized and presented in thematic sections: Figures and Symbols, Materials and Techniques, and Purpose and Function.

    The exhibition employs a concise and informative approach to convey the principal notions inherent in the rich traditions of Himalayan art to first-time visitors and specialists alike. In addition to sculptures and paintings, objects such as a stupa, prayer wheel, and ritual implements demonstrate that their patrons sought the accumulation of merit and hoped for wealth, long life, and spiritual gains, all to be fulfilled through the ritual use of these objects and commissioning works of art.

    Among the featured installations are a display that explains the process of Nepalese lost-wax metal casting and a presentation of the stages of Tibetan hanging scroll painting (thangka). Visitors will also encounter life-size reproductions of murals from Tibet’s Lukhang Temple, photographed by Thomas Laird and Clint Clemens.

    As a whole the exhibition provides visitors with tools for understanding the artistic traditions presented throughout the museum, including a Looking Guide, a take away brochure and an audio guide.

    Old ClayCurvyCool
    Place: Harn Museum of Art - Gainesville, 3259 Hull Road, Florida, USA
    Date: Aug 08, 2016 to Dec 08, 2017
    Detail: Contemporary Japanese ceramic artists make objects that challenge traditional definitions of clay, in both technique and aesthetic expression. Several postwar movements (Sōdeisha, Shikōkai, and Joryū Tōgei) formed the foundation for the pluralism of clay production that today’s artists exhibit through active redefinition of functionality, purpose, and articulation of form. In a move away from traditional craft, avant-garde and contemporary artists use clay as a means of sculptural expression.

    The works on display demonstrate a wide variety of transformations, innovations, and reinterpretations of traditional wares. While some artists defy notions of inside versus outside, others conceptualize new definitions of form through materials, processes, surface treatments, and firing methods. The artists include both outsiders of the field and those from established artistic lineages.

    Old 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.

    Old 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.

    Old 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.

    Old Conserving Treasures: Jamini Roy and Modern Indian Art
    Place: Harn Museum of Art - Gainesville, 3259 Hull Road, Florida, USA
    Date: Mar 21, 2017 to Mar 11, 2018
    Detail: One cannot overstate the importance of Jamini Roy’s (1887 – 1972) revolutionary role in the development of modern Indian art from late colonial period to the establishment of India as a nation state in 1947. Along with Amrita Sher-Gil (1913 – 1941) and poet-painter Rabindranath Tagore (1861 – 1941), Roy is considered one of the pioneering artistic leaders symbolizing the creation of a new “national art” for India. Although formally trained in European academic realism, the folk art traditions of his native region of Bengal significantly influenced Roy’s mature painting style. Folk art inspired Roy to forge a powerful weapon of anti-colonial resistance through his art.

    The Harn Museum’s collection contains 45 works by Jamini Roy and ranks among the largest public collections of distinguished holdings by the artist outside of India. Inspired by Indian village artisans, Roy often used pigments made from organic matter, including rock-dust, tamarind seeds, and mercury powder, to paint his canvases. Regardless of the nature of these materials, conservation scientists are able to preserve Roy’s works by consolidating lifting and flaking paint, stabilizing the canvas supports, and cleaning using dry methods.

    Along with two new highlighted donations, a selection of paintings in the exhibition were conserved in January 2016 with grant support from the E. Rhodes and Leonora B. Carpenter Foundation.

    Old An Enchanted Land: A Century of Indian Paintings at the MFA
    Place: Museum of Fine Arts - Boston, 465 Huntington Avenue, Massachusetts, USA
    Date: Apr 10, 2017 to Jan 07, 2018
    Detail: “An Enchanted Land” celebrates the centennial of the MFA’s collection of Indian art with a display of some of the most extraordinary examples of Indian painting anywhere in the world. Made in the Rajput kingdoms of North India between the 17th and 19th century, they represent a type of art that was totally unknown in the West when they entered the Museum’s collection a century ago. Even in India, Rajput painting was then little recognized.

    This exhibition celebrates 100 years of Indian paintings at the MFA, highlighting the contributions of the figure who brought them to Boston, and to the attention of the world: Ananda K. Coomaraswamy (1877–1947). Curator at the Museum from 1917 until his death in 1947, Coomaraswamy collected these paintings during his travels in India and sold them to MFA benefactor Denman Waldo Ross. A pioneering philosopher and historian of Indian art, Coomaraswamy was also a staunch nationalist, working to end British colonialism in India and elsewhere. He put Rajput painting forward as a proto-national art form of the highest quality, a visual manifestation of what he called “the great ideals of Indian culture.” For him the struggle for independence was nothing less than a fight to keep these ideals alive.

    The end of colonialism in India has reframed the ways we approach the study of Indian art, but many of Coomaraswamy’s observations and arguments about Rajput painting remain incisive. The works on view in this exhibition—organized around his own words, reflecting some of his keenest insights—also retain their power and their ability to delight.

    Old 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.

    Old 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.

    Old 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.

Award-winning works by all six artists who are designated as Living National Treasures will be featured. 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.

    Old 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.

    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.

    Old 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.

    Old Indonesian Shadow Puppets
    Place: Mingei International Museum - San Diego, Balboa Park, Plaza de Panama, 1439 El Prado, California, USA
    Date: Jul 19, 2017 to Mar 18, 2018
    Detail: Shadow puppet performances have been a highly-refined and complex storytelling tradition in parts of Indonesia for hundreds of years.

    Known as wayang kulit, these flat puppets are cut and punched from water buffalo hide and then colorfully painted, usually on both sides. Sticks or handles made from water buffalo horn or wood, attached to the base and limbs of each puppet, enable it to come to life in the hands of the dhalang, or puppeteer, who sits behind a cotton screen and manipulates the puppets while narrating a story.

    This intimate exhibition in the Museum’s Theater Gallery will feature approximately 30 puppets, which depict the vast repertoire of heroes and heroines, demons and pranksters featured in the great Hindu epics, the Mahābhārata and Rāmāyaṇa, as well as local gods and mythical subjects. Puppet performances provide entertainment, a sense of community, as well as an opportunity for sacred and secular instruction. Traditional performances are always accompanied by a gamelan, a musical ensemble comprised of gongs, drums, xylophones and stringed instruments.

    Old 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.

    Old 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.

    Old Conservation in Action: Demons and Demon Quellers
    Place: Museum of Fine Arts - Boston, 465 Huntington Avenue, Massachusetts, USA
    Date: Jul 29, 2017 to Feb 11, 2018
    Detail: Watch as the Asian Conservation Studio restores a 12-foot portrait of the mythological demon queller Marshal Xin, a general of thunder, dating back to China’s Ming dynasty and on view to the public for the first time. Marshal Xin was an impressive figure in Daoism, the popular belief system in imperial China, with powers to control ghosts and spirits, summon thunder and rain, and avert evil. The MFA’s 16th-century portrait may have once hung in a county government temple for use in ceremonies to protect all local citizens.

    The six-month conservation treatment involves dismantling and reassembling the entire work—a complicated construction in which the painting and mount form an inseparable unit, unlike most Western paintings and their frames. Conservators will also restore the painted image and original silk support. Visitors can observe the elaborate process unfold, and, at times, interact with conservators at work.

    The hanging scroll is surrounded by other works depicting demons and demon quellers, including an important 15th-century Chinese handscroll featuring the deity Erlang and his army battling mountain demons who have taken the form of beautiful women, as well as a Korean painting that shows demons tormenting sinners in the Buddhist hells. Japanese demonology is represented with paintings and prints that include the 19th-century hanging scroll Night Procession of the Hundred Demons.

    The video Mr. Sea (2014) by Beijing-based artist Geng Xue will be screened in the gallery, showcasing how traditional tales of demons and ghosts continue to influence contemporary culture. This animated film, featuring blue-and-white porcelain figures, recreates a supernatural adventure from Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio, a famous 18th-century collection of ghost stories.

    Old 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.

    Old 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.

    Old Showdown! Kuniyoshi Vs. Kunisada
    Place: Museum of Fine Arts - Boston, 465 Huntington Avenue , Massachusetts, USA
    Date: Aug 11, 2017 to Dec 10, 2017
    Detail: Rival artists Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1797–1861) and Utagawa Kunisada (1786–1864) were the two best-selling designers of ukiyo-e woodblock prints in 19th-century Japan. Kunisada was the popular favorite during his lifetime, famous for realistic portraits of Kabuki theater actors, sensual images of beautiful women and the luxurious settings he imagined for historical scenes. Kuniyoshi is beloved by today’s connoisseurs and collectors for his dynamic action scenes of tattooed warriors and supernatural monsters—foreshadowing present-day manga and anime—as well as comic prints and a few especially daring works that feature forbidden political satire in disguise. The exhibition presents a selection of 100 outstanding works, drawn entirely from the MFA’s preeminent Japanese collection, including large, multi-sheet images in brilliant color. Viewers are invited to decide for themselves which of the two artists is their personal favorite.

    Old 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.

    Old 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.

    Old 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

    Old Atmosphere in Japanese Painting
    Place: LACMA - Los Angeles, 5905 Wilshire Blvd., California, USA
    Date: Sep 15, 2017 to Feb 04, 2018
    Detail: Atmosphere in Japanese Painting, presenting a span of techniques for evoking atmosphere, features the artist Ikezaki Yoshio (Japan, active United States, born 1953), who makes his own paper and sumi, which he applies with his ki (氣), energy, to reveal the natural forces within the elements of water and air impelled by the flow of ki. An entire level of the East Wing in the Pavilion for Japanese Art will be devoted to his work. Three new acquisitions are also featured—a pair of screens by Yamaato Kakurei (active late 18th–early 19th century) purchased by the 2017 Collectors Committee and showing waves crashing against rocks, Falling Green by Senju Hiroshi (Japan, active United States, born 1958), and Cloud 6 (Kumo) by Miya Ando (United States, born 1978).

    Old In Focus: An Assembly of Gods
    Place: Asia Society - New York, 725 Park Avenue, USA
    Date: Sep 26, 2017 to Mar 25, 2018
    Detail: This exhibition takes an in-depth look at a large Chinese pantheon painting from the early nineteenth century, in which heaven, land, and water provide the setting for a fascinating assembly of gods rendered in fine ink outlines and vibrant color. Pantheon paintings and prints are traditionally displayed in Chinese homes on New Year’s Day when the gods are believed to visit for an annual inspection of the deeds of man. The meticulously painted work features a range of Buddhist, Daoist, Confucian, and popular Chinese deities.

    Old 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.

    Old NAOYA: The Wonderverse of POLYKANTEN
    Place: Onishi Gallery - New York, 521 W 26th Street, New York, USA
    Date: Sep 28, 2017 to Oct 28, 2017
    Detail: NAOYA: The Wonderverse of POLYKANTEN
    September 28 – October 28, 2017
    Opening Reception: Thursday, September 28, 6-8pm
    Onishi Gallery: 521 W 26th Street, New York, NY 10001



    Onishi Gallery is pleased to present The Wonderverse of POLYKANTEN by NAOYA, a solo exhibition of fantastical artwork based on the mystery of space science and a reconceptualization of Japanese artistic tradition. This exhibition, featuring futuristic sculptural figures and multi-media interaction, fuses reality with imagination through aesthetic projections of otherworldly beings. Gleaming white characters from alternate realities face viewers with aplomb, provoking questions of otherness and inspiring visions of encounter.

    In the tradition of famed Japanese arts, NAOYA’s artwork blurs the line between fiction and life history. Japanese author Haruki Murakami writes stories of supernatural fantasy that are filled with the familiar, mundane details of our everyday lives. His characters exist in multiple worlds, known and unknown, uniting impossibility with inevitability. Like Murakami, NAOYA’s sculptural characters emerge from magical narratives that lure viewers into worlds of mystery, tempting our universal desires to commune with the Other.

    Today, NAOYA populates the imaginary world that he designs, which he calls POLYKANTEN, with fairy-like children, animals with human personalities, and animistic goddesses. The creatures are all related, he says, though each one has its own reason for being. A main character, PEPO, loves marshmallows, is an only child, shy, and can dance. PEPO travels freely through space-time, traverses the many different planes of the universes, and has a head visually represented by the Pepo-Kabocha, a type of squash. The symbolic meanings of the characters’ visual forms reveal themselves as one learns more about their personalities and roles in the multiverse narrative. PEPO is accompanied by TOKO-chan, who loves apple pie, picture books, and is slightly stubborn; KIKO-chan, who gets cold and lonely easily, and dreams of befriending a cat on Earth; P-chan, who loves candy, taking walks, is resolute and sisterly; and many more. These unique characters all hail from the world of POLYKANTEN, this parallel place where boundaries and dimensions are fuzzy, chaos and order seem synonymous, and creative innovation seems unbounded.

    The monochromatic figures, painted entirely in white, stare at viewers with curious and blank expressions, begging for questions about the other worldly places they occupy. Believing in the possibility and potential of multiple universes, NAOYA creates these characters to visit with us here on Earth. And, in this special exhibition, we have a fleeting moment in which to meet them and dream ourselves into another world through honed artistic skill and sharpened imagination.

    Old Black and White: Japanese Modern Art
    Place: Museum of Fine Arts - Boston, 465 Huntington Avenue, Massachusetts, USA
    Date: Sep 30, 2017 to Jun 03, 2018
    Detail: Centered around a newly acquired, large-scale calligraphy by Inoue Yūichi (1916–85), this exhibition showcases a selection of avant-garde works in the monochrome aesthetic shared widely in Japan and beyond during the postwar period. This sensibility is rooted in Zen Buddhism, which values simplicity and austerity, and remains influential today. The works in the exhibition are the results of transnational exchanges between Japanese artists like Inoue and their American Expressionist contemporaries, including Franz Kline and Jackson Pollock, who drew inspiration from Asian calligraphy for their gestural paintings. Among the nine works on view are prints, ceramics and sculpture, primarily drawn from the MFA’s collection.

    Old 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.

    Old 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.

    Old Boundless Peaks: Ink Paintings by Minol Araki
    Place: Minneapolis Institute of Art - Minneapolis, 2400 Third Avenue South, Minnesota, USA
    Date: Oct 07, 2017 to Jun 24, 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.

    Date: Oct 11, 2017 to Jan 02, 2018
    Detail: Raghubir Singh (1942–1999) was a pioneer of color street photography who worked and published prolifically from the late 1960s until his death in 1999 at age 56. Born into an aristocratic family in Rajasthan, he lived in Hong Kong, Paris, London, and New York—but his eye was perpetually drawn back to his native India. This retrospective exhibition will situate Singh's photographic work at the intersection of Western modernism and traditional South Asian modes of picturing the world. It will feature 85 photographs by Singh in counterpoint with works by his contemporaries—friends, collaborators, fellow travelers—as well as examples of the Indian court painting styles that inspired him.

    The exhibition will trace the full trajectory of Singh's career from his early work as a photojournalist in the late 1960s through his last unpublished projects of the late 1990s. Using a handheld camera and color slide film, he recorded India's dense milieu in complex frieze-like compositions teeming with incident, fractured by reflections, and pulsating with opulent color. Singh embraced color as part of a continuous Indian aesthetic tradition that reaches back to the miniature paintings of the Mughal period. He was also deeply influenced by the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson (whom he met in Jaipur in 1966), Bengali filmmaker Satyajit Ray, and American street photographers such as William Gedney and Lee Friedlander. As he traveled along his own artistic path, Singh forged a distinctively Indian style of modernist photography that stands, as he put it, "on the Ganges side of modernism."

    Old 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.

Together, Murakami and Professor Tsuji have chosen the objects on view in the exhibition, including paintings and sculpture created by the artist in direct response to Japanese masterpieces from the MFA’s collection, such as Soga Shōhaku’s 35-foot-long Dragon and Clouds (1763), and the Heiji Scroll (second half of the 13th century)—one of the most famous Japanese works of art outside of Japan.

    New The New Flux: Naturalizing the Art of Painting
    Place: Agora Gallery - New York, 530 West 25th Street, USA
    Date: Oct 20, 2017 to Nov 09, 2017
    Detail: Agora Gallery presents The New Flux, a group exhibition that features different pictorial practices gathered around the theme of nature in urban life.

    The New Flux emphasizes portrayals of nature that are dependent on modern technologies. The works on exhibit often recreate nature as an image—something photographed or screen-grabbed, rather than an object or phenomenon directly perceived.

    Taking what is specific to a natural setting—a landscape, a body of water—and showing how it mimics the flow of urban life, The New Flux makes a case that our dependency on nature is just as pervasive as our dependency on technology.

    The New Flux: Naturalizing the Art of Painting opens October 20 and runs through November 9, 2017, with an opening reception on Thursday October 26, 2017 6-8 PM. Entrance is free.

    Place: Cernuschi Museum, Asian Art Museum of Paris - Paris, 7 Avenue Velasquez, France
    Date: Jun 08, 2017 to Nov 19, 2017

    Old 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).

Art and imagery were central to the spread of these systems of belief, and the visual identity of each religion was formed by encounters and interactions between different faiths and other traditions.

    This exhibition will bring to light brand new research from a major project conducted in partnership between the British Museum and University of Oxford, generously funded by the Leverhulme Trust.

    Old 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.

    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.

    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.

In particular, the seed beads have been used for costume decoration in beautiful and striking combinations. Over the years, Dr. Ochiai has amassed an unparalleled collection of objects featuring the plant’s seeds.

    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.

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.

    Old Hong Kong by Guo Zhiquan: Cityscapes in Ink
    Place: University Museum and Art Gallery, University of Hong Kong - Hong Kong, 90 Bonham Road, Pokfulam, Hong Kong

    Old Fibres of Life: Ikat Textiles of the Indonesian Archipelago
    Place: University Museum and Art Gallery, University of Hong Kong - Hong Kong, 90 Bonham Road, Pokfulam, Hong Kong
    Date: Sep 15, 2017 to Nov 26, 2017
    Detail: The University Museum and Art Gallery (UMAG) is pleased to announce Fibres of Life: IKAT Textiles of the Indonesian Archipelago from September 15 to November 26, 2017. With the exhibition and the publication of Ikat Textiles of the Indonesian Archipelago, UMAG offers a comprehensive overview of the profusion of ikat styles found across the Indonesian archipelago, accompanied by the first detailed reference book on the subject.

    Looking at Peter Ten Hoopen’s Pusaka Collection from a scholarly point of view, it is worth acknowledging how it illustrates the concept of ‘unity in diversity’, which the young state of Indonesia chose as its motto upon independence. Here, the interwoven-ness of styles from neighbouring island regions matter, as do their marked individuality and idiosyncrasies. Moreover, it allows for the study not just of the people’s finery, but also of their daily attire, which is lamentably absent in most collections.

    An ironic illustration of the effect of this collecting method comes from Ili Mandiri on Flores. As its dark red bridewealth sarongs have been prized and venerated by the local population, this is what most sophisticated collections have aimed to obtain. The simple but lovely indigo sarongs for everyday use have been almost entirely ignored by collectors; hence, they nearly always end up worn to shreds and very few survive—rarer now than the precious and respected, hence eagerly collected, bridewealth sarongs.

    What knowledge is conserved about ikat textiles and their use in the Indonesian archipelago consists primarily of the records of missionary and scientific fieldwork, predominantly compiled by non-Indonesians. The coverage is thin—many weaving regions are covered by only one or two sources, and several regions have never been studied in any detail. Much traditional knowledge is being lost, especially in the more remote island regions in the Indonesian archipelago, which require concerted effort if any trace of their culture is to survive. UMAG hopes to contribute to the broader project by means of this exhibition and publication, which shows ikat culture through a close reading of examples from over fifty weaving regions and a brief introduction to the conditions, beliefs and customs of the various peoples who have created and used them. The Pusaka Collection reveals the stylistic spectrum of the archipelago\'s ikat, while also showing remarkable correspondences rooted in time or sculpted by inter-island cultural exchanges. It is rich in superb and rare ikat textiles, many with few known cognates and some of them probably unique.

    Old Cold Nights
    Place: Ullens Center for Contemporary Art - Beijing Shi, 4 Jiuxianqiao Rd, Chaoyang Qu, People's Republic Of China
    Date: Sep 15, 2017 to Dec 17, 2017
    Detail: This exhibition grows from modern Chinese writer Ba Jin’s eponymous 1947 novel, which recounts the collapse of a family of intellectuals owing to domestic conflict against a background of national crisis. The curators invited the four artists, after reading the story, to play the roles of its four protagonists through their own artistic creation. Throughout the period of creation, the artists interacted with and responded to each other from their respective roles, forming a sort of creative collective built on the foundation of the novel. The final presentation of the exhibition is the artists’ response to their fictional personae as well as their current lived reality. The overlapping and mixing of these responses, in turn, structures a new space, a new text.

    Old The Art of Edo Rimpa

    Date: Sep 16, 2017 to Nov 05, 2017
    Detail: The art of Rimpa was born in 17th century Kyoto and followed a splendid development. It is in the 19th century that Sakai Hōitsu (1761–1828), born as the second son of Sakai Utanokami, the lord of Himeji domain, moved to Edo, and his student Suzuki Kiitsu (1796–1858) added further refinement to its style. This marked the establishment of “Edo Rimpa.” This exhibition will explore the appeal of Edo Rimpa that took the essences of Rimpa of Kyoto which was supported by the aristocratic style, and at the same time transformed it to an updated Edo esthetic.

    Old Kano Motonobu and His Age (TBC)
    Place: Suntory Museum of Art - Tokyo, Tokyo Midtown Galleria 3F, 9-7-4 Akasaka, Minato-ku, Japan
    Date: Sep 16, 2017 to Nov 05, 2017
    Detail: Kano Motonobu, establishing the Kano school, lived in the Muromachi period. He systemized and built upon the brushwork styles of famous Chinese artists to create three styles of paintings: shin-gyo-so, or formal, semi-formal, and informal. By having his students master those examples, he created a studio system that assured the training of generations of Kano-school artists and also made possible studio projects executed through teamwork. In addition to the Chinese-style ink painting that had been the forte of his father, Masanobu, Motonobu also ventured into Yamato-e territory, broadening the school’s appeal and meeting a wide range of demand. This exhibition will focus on Motonobu’s oeuvre and the elements that enabled the Kano school, as an organization, to expand and become a powerful presence in Japanese art.

    Date: Nov 11, 2017 to Dec 17, 2017
    Detail: It was after the studies of Chinese standards that the tradition of cherishing calligraphy as art was cultivated establishing a distinctive world in Japan. The intellectuals of each time period were well acquainted with “calligraphic writing” and maintained discipline and numerous rules, but they also competed for skill on the other hand. Such custom is still present today, bringing about many styles. This show will try to seek how calligraphy was succeeded since the old days and how people sought for originality and ideal. We will also consider the manners of how calligraphy can be appreciate with masterpieces from Chinese and Japanese calligraphy.

    Detail: Hours: Mon. – Fri. 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., Sat. 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
    Opening Reception with the Artists: Wed. Oct. 11, 2017, 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

    “Art is a demon” “Making art is always struggling” Ushio and Noriko Shinohara’s parallel statements speak to the unremitting and beautiful nature of a life devoted to art. The pair possess an unbridled creativity, both vital and unrelenting, yet distinct in its manifestations. Ronin Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition Wrestling the Demon: Noriko and Ushio Shinohara. Held in conjunction with Asian Contemporary Art Week, this exhibition explores decades of printmaking within these two storied careers. Wrestling the Demon includes paintings and drawings that inspired their prints, as well as works by their son and fellow artist Alex Shinohara. From Noriko’s famed Cutie series to Ushio’s notorious boxing paintings, this exhibition considers decades spent wrestling with the demon of art, and quite often, wrestling with themselves.

    Wrestling the Demon approaches their works not as solitary art objects, but as an evolution of series over several decades. For Noriko, this project can be seen as her self-actualization as an artist through the paintings and prints of her Cutie series. As Cutie develops over the years, Noriko exorcises her regrets, hones her artistic awareness, and finds empowerment. For Ushio his paintings, prints and sculpture weave a steady thread through his long career. From enfant terrible of the Japanese art scene, to Brooklyn-based artist, Ushio continues to develop his action paintings and prints with unrelenting vigor and varied perspective.

    Old Frog King Turns 70, Experiments in Ink Since the 1970s
    Place: 10 Chancery Lane Gallery - SoHo, Central, Hong Kong, G/F, 10 Chancery Lane, Hong Kong
    Date: Sep 28, 2017 to Nov 25, 2017
    Detail: Throughout his career, Frog King has been working with ink in myriad ways. He began his artistic practice as a traditional ink painter under the guidance of Lui Shou-Kwan, who was known as Hong Kong’s new ink painting master during the time of his tuition in the 1970s. However, he quickly broke tradition and started to experiment with ink in more conceptual ways.

    Frog King\'s use of ink includes performance, daily practice of painting calligraphy expressing his innovated “Sandwich Font” merging Chinese characters and Western writing, graffiti, collage paintings and screens that layers his many methods of ink practices, one-second painting performances, sculptural works and installations, as well as signature Frog King ink chops among many other techniques.

    Frog King\'s motto, “Art is life, Life is Art” is something that we see not only appearing within his works but is something he lives by. He works constantly on his artworks, usually waking in the early hours to paint or sitting in Hong Kong cafes brush and paper in hand. Frog King says that he feels totally free working on his ink paintings into the night as if his mind is lost in his work.

    Opening Reception with the artist at 10 Chancery Lane Gallery:

    28 September, 2017, 6.30-8.30pm

    (Members of the press are invited to attend the opening reception)

    Old Beyond the Forbidden City: Encounters with Chinese Architecture at Mia
    Place: Minneapolis Institute of Art - Minneapolis, 2400 Third Avenue South, Minnesota, USA
    Date: Nov 02, 2017
    Detail: Join us for an introduction to Chinese architecture surveying works in Mia’s collection, including the recently installed wooden gate from Shanxi province. Dating from 1858, this imposing structure would have formed the entrance into the main courtyard of a middle-class urban family’s home. Traditional carpenters from China have reassembled the gate using only joineries and wooden pins. It now serves as the main entrance to Mia’s Chinese art galleries.

    Old ChinaFile Presents: 'Nine Continents' — A Conversation with Memoirist Xiaolu Guo
    Place: Asia Society - New York, 725 Park Avenue, USA
    Date: Nov 08, 2017
    Detail: As a young child, Xiaolu Guo visited a Taoist monk who pronounced her a “peasant warrior.” “She will cross the sea and travel to the Nine Continents,” the monk predicted.

    But Guo didn't need a prophecy to tell her to pursue a life beyond her grandparents’ poor fishing village on the East China Sea. Through sheer determination and a bit of luck, she won a spot at China’s most prestigious film school, the Beijing Film Academy. In the nation’s capital, during the 1990s, she witnessed a bustling art world, wrote scripts for Chinese audiences crazy about soap operas, and fell in love with a foreigner. In her late 20s, Guo finally “crossed the sea” after accepting an art fellowship just outside of London — the city where she would ultimately build a life.

    After many years away from China, Guo has become “a nomad in both body and mind,” not quite Chinese anymore and yet never totally at ease in London. Her latest book, Nine Continents: A Memoir In and Out of China, explores how Chinese families coped with the Cultural Revolution, China’s rapid economic growth, and a globalized world.

    SPEAKERS:
    Xiaolu Guo is the author of Village of StoneA Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for LoversTwenty Fragments of a Ravenous Youth, and I Am China. She has been named one of Granta’s Best of Young British Novelists. Guo has also directed several award-winning films, including She, A Chinese and a documentary about London, Late at Night. She lives in London and Berlin.

    Isaac Stone Fish is a Senior Fellow at the Asia Society’s Center on U.S.-China Relations. A frequent commentator on global affairs, Stone Fish’s articles have appeared in The New York TimesThe AtlanticThe GuardianSlate, and Time, among other publications, and he has appeared as a guest on CBS, ABC, NPR, MSNBC, BBC, and PRI, among others. He is writing a novel about Donald J. Trump and Kim Jong-un.

    Old Exploring Asian Culture through Urushi Lacquer Arts
    Place: Minneapolis Institute of Art - Minneapolis, 2400 Third Avenue South, Minnesota, USA
    Date: Nov 19, 2017
    Detail: Natural lacquer—urushi in Japanese—is the sap of several species of trees native to East and Southeast Asia. In early Japan, craftspeople who recognized its durability and lustrous allure began using it to coat wood, pottery, baskets, and other objects. Today, contemporary artists are increasingly working with urushi in their paintings, art objects, and jewelry. Matsushima Sakurako will give an illustrated talk on the history and current state of urushi arts in Japan and in the rest of Asia. She will then demonstrate a simple coating and decorative technique using raw urushi.

    Matsushima Sakurako is a professor at Utsunomiya University in Tochigi Prefecture, and director of the Asian Lacquer Craft Exchange Project, She has exhibited her works worldwide since 1989.
