Drawn from the diverse collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer, “Global Asias” features 45 works from 15 artists of Asian heritage—including Takashi Murakami, Mariko Mori, and Patti Warashina. The included pieces reshape and challenge conventional views of abstract art by exploring new materials and techniques; reflect on the experiences of migration, within Asia and beyond; and engage and critique popular culture and politics.
“The artists included in this exhibition open our eyes to what it is like to cross boundaries both real and cultural,” says Schnitzer, whose art collection consists of over 20,000 works and is one of the country’s largest private print collections. “I hope each viewer is as moved as I am by this exhibition and is challenged and inspired by the art. The power of this exhibition will influence all of us for years to come.”
The show has been guest curated by Chang Tan, PhD, assistant professor of art history and Asian studies at Penn State. It will run through June 25. General admission $10; pacificasiamuseum.usc.edu
