Past in Reverse: Contemporary Art of East Asia
Showcasing more than twenty important and cutting-edge Chinese, Japanese, Taiwanese, and Korean artists and artist groups, this exhibition presents the work of artists who skillfully use contemporary approaches to express their respective cultural and artistic heritages. The exhibition features innovative works that use the past to map the future, representing some of the newest trends in an increasingly globalized world. Working with both traditional techniques and new technologies, the artists reveal the viability of incorporating longstanding traditions into contemporary art. This exhibition was organized by the San Diego Museum of Art. Major support for this exhibition is provided by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation.
