Currently on view at the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco is “Proximities 3: Import/Export,” a group exhibition that considers trade and commerce. Some of the Bay Area’s most exciting contemporary artists respond to the question: what is Asia? Asian influences are pervasive in U.S. culture, perhaps nowhere more so than in the Bay Area. But we each encounter 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. “Proximities 3: Import/Export” is the last component to a 3 part exhibition curated by Glen Helfand, an independent writer, critic, curator and educator.
“Proximities 3: Import/Export” is on view through Feburary 23rd, 2014.
