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 1: What Time Is It There? (May 24-July 21) presents themes related to landscape, imagined and real.
Proximities 2: Knowing Me, Knowing You examines Asia as seen through family and community (Oct 11-Dec 8).
