Press Release:

“The Bay Area has a strong connection to Asia—some of the artists featured in Proximities have Asian lineage, others academic training, while some simply have an interest and attraction to Asian culture,” said Jay Xu, director of the Asian Art Museum. “The aim of the series is to illuminate ideas and viewpoints, and to invite a lively dialogue among artistic, ethnic, and cultural audiences.”

The second of the series, Proximities 2: Knowing Me, Knowing You, on view Oct. 11 through Dec. 8, 2013, is concerned with the roles of family, community, and ethnicity, addressing a global population that makes the concept of Asia resonate beyond its geographic boundaries. Artists featured include Rebeca Bollinger, Kota Ezawa, Mik Gaspay, Michael Jang, Pawel Kruk, Barry McGee, and Anne McGuire.
The exhibition series will be augmented with image collections via social media, blog posts and other web content related to the exhibition’s themes on www.asianart.org. The show’s online presence will continue to expand with each exhibition.
