Tomorrow, December 8th is the last day to see “Proximities 2: Knowing Me, Knowing You,” at the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco, an exhibition of Asian influences are pervasive in U.S. culture, perhaps nowhere more so than in the Bay Area. Everyone encounters Asia differently—some have the intimacy of lineage, while others might have little awareness. In “Proximities”, a three-part exhibition, a multiplicity of perspectives comes together at the museum, with works that stimulate dialogue around individual ideas about Asia. The first component of the exhibition, “Proximities 1: What Time Is It There?,” presented themes related to landscape, imagined and real. Currently on view, “Proximities 2: Knowing Me, Knowing You,” examines Asia as seen through family and community. Proximities 3: Import/Export considers trade and commerce, opening December 20th, 2013 and on view through February 23rd, 2014. This exhibition is curated by Glen Helfand, an independent writer, critic, curator and educator.
“Proximities 2: Knowing Me, Knowing You,” is on view through December 8th, 2013.
