    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 Resound: Ancient Bells of China
    Place: Smithsonian Institution - Washington, D.C., 1050 Independence Ave SW, USA
    Date: Oct 14, 2017 to Dec 31, 2019
    Detail: Bells were among the first metal objects created in China. Beginning over 3,500 years ago, small, primitive noisemakers grew into gongs and further evolved into sets of hand bells for playing melodies. Further, centuries of technological experimentation resulted in more sophisticated bells that produced two pitches when struck in different spots.

    Variations in size, shape, decoration, and sound also reveal regional differences across north and south China. By the late Bronze Age large sets of tuned bells were played in ensemble performances in both areas. Cast from bronze, these durable bells preserve valuable information about the character of early Chinese music.

    Today we can use technology to explore these ancient instruments and to explain their acoustical properties, but we know little about the sound of this early music. To bring the bells to life, we commissioned three composers to create soundscapes using the recorded tones of a 2,500-year-old bell set on display. Each of them also produced a video projection to interpret his composition with moving images that allow us to “see sound.”

    New Power in Southeast Asia
    Place: Smithsonian Institution - Washington, D.C., 1050 Independence Ave SW, USA
    Date: Oct 21, 2017 to Nov 18, 2018
    Detail: Through a range of local styles, techniques, and materials, the artworks in this exhibition reveal understandings of power in Southeast Asia. Large and small objects from Cambodia, Indonesia, and Thailand are clustered to explore the powers of warfare, water, snakes, and the feminine. These themes are both culturally specific and universally resonant.

    During the first millennium CE, maritime Southeast Asia became a network of trading polities boasting cosmopolitan emporiums. Inland dynasties established urban capitals. Flourishing during the ninth through the fourteenth century, these cities towered with temples and supported sophisticated courtly cultures. Their rulers fostered innovative artistic and architectural creations that blended imported ideas with local traditions.

    Cities arose at the archaeological areas of Angkor (Cambodia), Prambanan and Majapahit (Indonesia), Bagan (Myanmar), and Si Thep (Thailand). In each place, Buddhist and Hindu schools from India gained traction. Deities including Bhairava, Agastya, and the goddess were worshiped, and potent symbols, such as water and snakes, served as markers of the divine.

Their valor was recognized by many, including historian F. Yeats Brown, who said, “…[Sikh warriors] live up to their title of the Singh, which means lion.”

    New Chitra Ganesh
    Place: Rubin Museum of Art - New York, 150 West 17th Street, USA
    Date: Feb 02, 2018 to Nov 04, 2018
    Detail: The mudra known as the scorpion gesture is said to have unlimited power and potential for transformation. Your presence will transform the Rubin galleries in Chitra Ganesh’s new series The Scorpion Gesture, causing her large-scale animations to appear as if by magic when you walk by select artworks. Ganesh has created five animated artistic “interventions” inspired by pieces in Gateway to Himalayan Art and Masterworks, using the figures of Padmasambhava, known as the Second Buddha, and Maitreya, the Future Buddha, as points of departure. The animations build on Ganesh’s longstanding investigation of mythology, imagery, and narrative in her multidisciplinary practice, integrating her drawings with elements from the Rubin’s collection.

    New The Second Buddha: Master of Time
    Place: The Rubin Museum of Art - New York, 150 West 17th St., USA
    Date: Feb 02, 2018 to Jan 07, 2019
    Detail: In 2018, the future will be both present and projected from the past at the Rubin Museum of Art, with a new exhibition that will tell the story of the legendary Indian master Padmasambhava. Celebrated by Tibetans as “The Second Buddha,” Padmasambhava, the Lotus Born, is believed to have been instrumental in converting the land and people of Tibet to Buddhism. His legends carry universal relevance about triumph over obstacles, the power of human emotions, transformation, impermanence, achieving liberation from life and death, and notions of time — all of which transcend specific cultures and eras.

    The Second Buddha will bring together 40 works of art from the 13th to 20th centuries with interactive technology. Central to the exhibition will be themes of the interconnected nature of past and future as the basis for constructing identity and projecting teachings into the future. It is said that in the past Padmasambhava concealed his teachings, known as Treasure Teachings, throughout the Tibetan landscape to be discovered by foretold disciples at opportune times in the future. To parallel such discoveries, visitors will engage with select objects to reveal their hidden meaning and content. As one of the methods for revealing that which is hidden, visitors will use Augmented Reality (AR) tablets. The exhibition will also be activated by other interactive technology and performances, which will bring the narratives to life and let visitors consider mechanisms of storytelling that touch on the themes of the exhibition, the past, the present, and ways of enabling the future.

    New Art Of The Mountain: Through The Chinese Photographer’s Lens
    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. Their veneration took the form of rituals, retreat from social society, and aesthetic appreciation through the art of their vast beauty – some of the many ways that nature played and continues to play a defining role in Chinese culture. The exhibition, consisting of three sections with over 70 photographs by more than 20 contemporary photographers, will present the geography, history, culture, life, and art that is associated with or derived from mountains. The Lofty Mountains: The Famous Mountains of China will introduce the geography, history, legends, and cultures that are associated with famous Chinese mountains; The Pure Sound of Landscape: The Mountains and Chinese Landscape Aesthetic will introduce the renowned Chinese landscape painting aesthetic and how it influenced contemporary photography; and The New Landscape Photography will showcase artists using photography and post-photographic visual effects to express their thoughts on the role of mountains in society.

    New A Monument for the Anxious and Hopeful
    Place: The Rubin Museum of Art - New York, 150 West 17th St., USA
    Date: Feb 10, 2018 to Nov 11, 2018
    Detail: Anxiety and hope are often defined by a moment that has yet to arrive. How often do we memorialize our hopes and anxieties and consider their relationship to the future? A Monument for the Anxious and Hopeful is an opportunity to express your apprehensions and expectations for tomorrow, contemplate your sense of the future, and engage with the viewpoints of others.

    Inspired by Tibetan prayer flags and the anonymity of public spaces, artist Candy Chang and writer James A. Reeves ask Rubin visitors to engage with their community by sharing their anxieties or hopes on a card. At a glance, passersby in our Spiral Lobby will be able to glean the prevailing mood of respondents and, drawing closer, explore hundreds of individual meditations that range from personal, local, and specific statements to political, theoretical, and spiritual reflections.

    New A Lost Future
    Place: The Rubin Museum of Art - New York, 150 West 17th St., USA
    Date: Feb 23, 2018 to Jan 28, 2019
    Detail: In the Otolith Group’s transtemporal consideration of modernity in urban India, the narrator questions, “Why do Indian artists produce so little science fiction?” The reply: “Satyajit Ray’s film The Alien would have rendered this question void. It is this emptiness that allows a nostalgia for a lost future.”

    The three-part exhibition A Lost Future challenges existing histories and speculative futures across cultures and in Bengal—a culturally rich region divided between present-day India and Bangladesh. The three contemporary artists featured in the exhibition—Shezad Dawood, the Otolith Group, and Matti Braun—engage an evocative range of mediums that spans virtual reality to an immersive lake along with painting, film, sculpture, and photography. Through rich storytelling, A Lost Future explores themes of virtuality, modernity, and world-making in ways that are universal as well as interconnected and specific to this region.

    A Lost Future presents still works by all three artists throughout the run, while the central cove will rotate to highlight each one individually.

    A Lost Future: Shezad Dawood (February 23–May 18, 2018) features an interactive virtual reality experience of the Indian hill station Kalimpong, linking a haunting nostalgic portal to a future alternative reality. Expanding on some of the sites and stories in Dawood’s paintings and sculptures on view, the virtual reality work allows visitors to travel from the mythic Himalayan Hotel into the mountains, an adjacent monastery, and beyond.

    A Lost Future: The Otolith Group (June 1–September 17, 2018) presents the world premiere of the Turner Prize–nominated filmmakers’ new work on the past, present, and future of the Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore’s radical, pioneering art school Kala Bhavan in Santiniketan, as well as a selection of earlier films, including their “premake” of Ray’s unmade film The Alien, titled Otolith III (2009).

    A Lost Future: Matti Braun (October 5, 2018–January 28, 2019)transforms the central gallery into an immersive lake that visitors can traverse. R.T., S.R., V.S. (2003–present) references the lotus pond in the first scene of Ray’s The Alien,in which a friendly, catalytic alien from another time and place lands in a village. It also draws inspiration from the first scene in Steven Spielberg’s E.T., which may have been directly influenced by Ray’s script.

    New The Poetry of Nature: Edo Paintings from the Fishbein-Bender Collection
    Place: The Met Fifth Avenue - New York, 1000 Fifth Avenue, USA
    Date: Feb 27, 2018 to Jan 21, 2019
    Detail: Painting blossomed in Japan during the Edo period (1615–1868), as artists daringly experimented with conventional styles. In this exhibition, more than 40 examples of Edo-period paintings from the collection of Estelle P. Bender and her late husband T. Richard Fishbein—mostly gifts and promised gifts to The Met—will help trace the development of the major schools and movements of this fascinating era. Contemporary Japanese ceramics will be juxtaposed with Edo-period paintings, while works in various formats and media from The Met collection will provide context. The celebration of the natural world will serve as a unifying theme, and the intertwined relationship between poetry and the pictorial arts—so fundamental to Japanese tradition—will be a particular focus of the exhibition.

    Detail: Featuring theatrical and political costumes as well as architectural and decorative textiles from diverse areas of Asia — Dramatic Threads: Textiles of Asia will showcase works that display a wide range of techniques. Different embroidery stitches may be read like a signature to unveil where they were made. Woven textiles reflect diverse making methods ranging from virtuoso brocades and slit-tapestry to twill and plain weaves. The materials used—gold, silk, wool, cotton—all unlock regional access to resources weighing local production compared to luxury imports. Cultural preferences for specific color palates and subject matter intertwine with these resources and underscore distinct regional histories.

    Place: Minneapolis Institute of Art - Minneapolis, 2400 Third Avenue South, USA
    Date: Mar 31, 2018 to Nov 18, 2018
    Detail: “Enchanted Mountains” reveals the rich imaginations and sensitivities of Chinese landscape painters through a variety of artistic styles.

Drawn from Mia’s collection, these works span 500 years of Chinese history (1200s–1800s) and demonstrate the spiritual, philosophical, and religious ideas that shaped this significant tradition in Chinese painting.

    New Arts of South and Southeast Asia
    Place: The San Diego Museum of Art - San Diego, 1450 El Prado, Balboa Park, California, USA
    Date: Apr 05, 2018 to Jan 31, 2019
    Detail: Arts of South and Southeast Asia ranges in date from the first to the nineteenth century AD.

    The earliest works are mostly religious, relating to the ritual practices of Buddhism, Jainism, and Hinduism. Although each religion has a distinct set of gods and divinities, all three based the iconography of these figures on the human form. Buddhism spread along the Silk Road moving west to Pakistan and Central Asia, and east to China, Japan, Korea, and Southeast Asia. Hinduism also traveled to Sri Lanka and Southeast Asia.

    During a series of invasions and migrations in the eleventh century, people from Central Asia moved into Pakistan and northern India. They brought India a new literary language, Persian, and Islam. By the end of the fifteenth century, European traders and missionaries began arriving by sea. They, in addition to goods, also brought oil paintings and engravings. These cultural influences thrived alongside traditions stemming from the region’s native languages, literatures, and religions, which continue to flourish.

    Place: Minneapolis Institute of Art - Minneapolis, 2400 Third Avenue South, USA
    Date: Aug 18, 2018 to Mar 10, 2019
    Detail: The Tale of Genji is celebrated as Japan’s greatest literary work. Written in the early 1000s by Murasaki Shikibu, a lady-in-waiting at the imperial court, the tale traces the life and romantic pursuits of an imperial prince called “Shining Genji.” Rich in poetry and offering an intimate look at the court, it has inspired countless Japanese artists over the centuries, and illustrations of or allusions to the tale appear on everything from paintings, prints, and decorative artworks to clothing and manga (comic books). This exhibition will focus on Genji-related art created over the past 500 years. Shown in two rotations—each encompassing almost 5,000 square feet—the exhibition will feature woodblock prints alongside folding screens, lacquerware, kimono, and art in other media from Mia’s renowned collection of Japanese art.

    New The Progressive Revolution: Modern Art for a New India
    Place: Asia Society - New York, 725 Park Avenue, USA
    Date: Sep 15, 2018 to Jan 20, 2019
    Detail: Just over seven decades after the declaration of India’s independence in 1947 and the emergence of a modern art movement in India, Asia Society presents a landmark exhibition of works by members of the Progressive Artists’ Group, which formed in Bombay, now Mumbai, in the aftermath of independence. The Progressive Revolution: Modern Art for a New India will examine the founding ideology of the Progressives and explore the ways in which artists from different social, cultural, and religious backgrounds found common cause at a time of massive political and social upheaval.

    Though the group disbanded in 1956, the movement continued to animate and give visual expression to India’s modern identity, with many of the group’s artists creating their most iconic works after this period. Works in the exhibition—primarily oil paintings­ from the 1940s to 1960s—underscore how these artists gave visual form to the idea of India as secular, heterogeneous, international, and united. Like their counterparts in the West, India’s modern masters mined multiple sources of inspiration while forging their own distinctive styles. Their consideration of the ways in which a new secular republic could emerge from a rich, multi-religious tradition continues to be relevant today.

    The exhibition comprises important works from the Group’s core founders—K.H. Ara, S.K. Bakre, H.A. Gade, M.F. Husain, S.H. Raza, and F.N. Souza—as well as later members and those closely affiliated with the movement: V.S. Gaitonde, Krishen Khanna, Ram Kumar, Tyeb Mehta, Akbar Padamsee, and Mohan Samant.

    The exhibition is organized by Zehra Jumabhoy, guest curator, and Boon Hui Tan, Director of Asia Society Museum. An illustrated catalogue featuring essays by leading scholars of Indian art and modern history will accompany the exhibition.

    New Peacock in the Desert: The Royal Arts of Jodhpur, India
    Place: Seattle Art Museum - Seattle, 1300 First Avenue, USA
    Date: Oct 18, 2018 to Jan 21, 2019
    Detail: Centuries of royal treasures from Jodhpur, India, come to the United States for the first time in the new exhibition Peacock in the Desert.

    Imagine yourself in the luxuriant royal spaces of India’s historic courtly life. Resplendent with brilliant paintings, lavishly made ceremonial objects, finely crafted arms and armor, sumptuous jewels, and intricately carved furnishings, Peacock in the Desert will transport you to the royal palace of Jodhpur, India.

    Nearly four centuries of artistic creation from one of the largest former princely states in India, the kingdom of Marwar-Jodhpur in the northwestern state of Rajasthan, will fill SAM’s galleries. Some 250 paintings, decorative arts, tents, canopies, carpets and other textiles, jewelry, and weapons will be presented beside large-scale photomurals which evoke the stunning setting of the Mehrangarh Museum in Jodhpur.

    Many of these masterpieces and relics have not been seen beyond palace walls and most have never traveled to the United States. These treasures trace the evolving historical framework of royal identity in India from the 17th century to the establishment of independence after 1947 and reflect the artistic legacy of the Rathore dynasty, who ruled the Marwar-Jodhpur kingdom for more than seven centuries.

    Drawn primarily from the collections of the Mehrangarh Fort Museum of Jodhpur and private collections of the Jodhpur royal family, this evocative exhibition illuminates hundreds of years of Indian courtly life.

    Date: Apr 29, 2018 to Nov 11, 2018
    Detail: Early eighteenth-century silks are remarkable for their profu-sion of exotic patterns. The textile designers who created them were inspired by illustrated accounts of travels in Asian lands as well as wares imported from the Near and Far East. These influences gave rise to fabrics with bizarre compositions and chinoiseries. Frequently changing pattern styles defined what counted as fashionable. This special exhibition presents a selection of these magnificent silks along with elegant ladies’ and gentlemen’s costumes from the same period.

    The artist has developed a unique palette and way of depicting the human face and hands which is extremely memorable.

    “Painting provides me with a gateway to stay in contact with the world. What I feel, see, fear and think are all articulated through my paintings.”

    Date: Oct 08, 2018 to Dec 14, 2018
    Detail: A ground-breaking exhibition at St Hugh's College, University of Oxford, about Michael Alphonsus Shen Fuzong, the first Chinese visitor to England known by name. It focusses on the six weeks Shen spend in Oxford as the guest of Thomas Hyde, Librarian of the Bodleian Library, and features a life-size portrait of Shen by Sir Godfrey Kneller, commissioned by James II in 1687 and today part of the Royal Collection. It appears alongside exhibits from leading collections and archives brought together for the first time.

    Michael Shen Fuzong was a Christian convert, brought to Europe as part of a campaign to gain support for the Jesuit missions in China, to which James II as a Roman Catholic was keen to show his favour. The portrait of Shen has long been recognised as one of the glories of James II's short reign, and a key image in the growing fascination with China in the West.

    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.

    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.

    New In the Country of Fans, Japan

    Detail: Did you know that slim, accordion-fold fans are a Japanese invention? These fans, which have broad and deep roots in Japanese life, appearing in religious festivals, daily life, performances, and games, have evolved a rich decorativeness. Highly portable, ready to be enjoyed anywhere, they are perhaps our most familiar and accessible example of “Art in Life.” Moreover, folding fans have helped generate a diverse range of related works of art, including folding screens, handscrolls, craft arts, and textiles. In this exhibition, we introduce the enduring world of the fans so long beloved by Japanese.

    The Fine Art Print Fair is the most celebrated art fair dedicated to the artistic medium of printmaking -- works of graphic art that have been conceived by the artist to be realized as an original work of art, rather than a copy of a work in another medium. For more than 30 years, the International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA) has brought together a passionate community of followers -- seasoned and new collectors alike -- for whom the Fine Art Print Fair is a major highlight of the year.

    The Fine Art Print Fair will showcase exceptional works spanning old master to contemporary, unique masterworks to new editions from eighty-one exhibitors from the IFPDA’s esteemed roster of members. 27 international exhibitors from the United Kingdom, Spain, France, Germany, Mexico, Switzerland, Denmark, Italy and Ireland will participate in the 2018 edition.

    In addition to exhibitor offerings, the Fair will feature programming and events focused on print scholarship. Attendees are invited to enjoy the Fair’s river views and proximity to the High Line, the Chelsea Arts District, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.

    The Fine Art Print Fair is open to the public Thursday, October 25 – Saturday, October 27 from 12:00 pm to 8:00 pm, and Sunday, October 28 from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm. The Opening Night Preview will take place on October 24 from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm. Tickets will be available for purchase in September.

    Ronin Gallery is honored to present Munakata and the Disciples of Buddha during Asia Week 2017. This exhibition invites you to experience the woodblock prints of Shiko Munakata (1903 - 1975) and to discover the Buddhist roots of Japanese woodblock printing. Culminating in his iconic series Ten Great Disciples of the Buddha, the exhibition explores the vital interplay of artistic tradition and religious practice behind Munakata’s groundbreaking work. Starting with the origins of Japanese woodblock printing in the 12th century, to the ukiyo-e prints of the Edo and Meiji periods, the exhibition Munakata and the Disciples of Buddha places this innovative master of modern woodblock printmaking within centuries of tradition. Also on exhibit will be an exceptionally rare calligraphy kakejiku (scroll painting) by Munakata from the private collection of Munakata\'s granddaughter, Yoriko Ishii, as well as other important hand-colored works.

    New KESANG LAMDARK: Knock, Knock
    Place: Rossi Rossi - Wong Chuk Hang, 3C Yally Industrial Building, 6 Yip Fat Street, Hong Kong
    Date: Sep 22, 2018 to Nov 24, 2018
    Detail: Rossi & Rossi Hong Kong is delighted to announce Knock, Knock, a solo exhibition of works by Kesang Lamdark. Exploring the transformation of his spiritual homeland, the works on view juxtapose imagery from classical Tibetan art with that found in an imported Chinese consumer culture.

    The show’s title derives from the repetitive sound the artist makes as he hammers tiny holes to create micro-pointillist lightboxes and aluminium can sculptures. Describing his process, Lamdark says, ‘The knock knockis the drumbeat, the heartbeat – meditation…similar to the sounds of monks making a sand mandala. I’m making a light mandala, releasing with my needles light to go through’.

    Born in exile in Dharamsala, India, Lamdark was accepted as a refuge by Switzerland, where he was raised and educated before moving to New York to attend university. His father is a Rinpoche, a reincarnated lama. The artist’s work continuously attempts to reconcile the social, spiritual and political asymmetries of his Tibetan-Western identity.

    For his sculptural Drunk Driving in Lhasa(2017), Lamdark mounts Lhasa Beer cans on a cracked car windscreen, which is surrounded by disco lights, producing the effect of a fire burning inside. Hammered into the bottoms of the cans are micro-pointillist images of Tibetan holy men, along with The Blues Brothers, a car crash and a woman performing fellatio. ‘Sex and death are closely related’, Lamdark says. His car crash thus becomes a tragic symbol of the high-speed destruction of culture brought about by the tourist industry, a commentary on dilettantes who take the high-speed train to Tibet seeking ‘spirituality’ during the day, and then drinking and partying at night.

    The plight of self-immolators is a recurring theme in Lamdark’s art. It is referenced in Illuminati(2018), which features a black light illuminating the burning figures inside. Covered with transparent plastic wrap on which the artist placed his fingerprints, the work questions the concept of identity for those who have burned theirs in the name of freedom.

    Superheroes(2018) combines images of ancient heroes with Tibetan deities and Marvel Comic figures. ‘Modern superheroes remind me somehow of all the [gods and] goddesses in Tibet, who are like superheroes for me’, Lamdark says. He explores and embraces the differences between the two cultures, offering new perspectives on the deities of Tibet, superheroes of the West and the occupation and commercialisation of his birthplace.

    Lamdark’s previous exhibitions in Hong Kong include Generation Exile: Exploring New Tibetan Identities, at Hanart TZ Gallery (in association with Rossi & Rossi) in 2011, and MoMARS, a solo presentation at Art Basel Hong Kong in 2014.
