This exhibition celebrates the versatility and enduring influence of the calligraphic ink tradition across Asia. The selection on view, from Asia Society Museum’s new acquisitions of contemporary ink and calligraphic art, highlights exemplary works by Gu Wenda, Huang Yan, Minjung Kim, Qiu Zhijie, and Sun Xun. These contemporary works, displayed alongside two illuminated Qur’ans from China and Central Asia, reveal the innovative use of ink and calligraphy in visual expression, from the thirteenth century to the present, across Asia and the diaspora.
