Barry McGee “Knowing Me, Knowing You” at Asian Art Museum, San Francisco. Curated by Glen Helfand.
In countless ways, Asia influences us all. In the Bay Area, and California in general, its influence is particularly visible, thanks to the vibrant range of cultures in this region. Proximities is a trilogy of exhibitions featuring the diverse perspectives of Bay Area-based artists whose work expresses connections, conceptions and interpretations of Asia. Working from various personal proximities to the region—from family heritage to imagined journeys—the artists offer points of departure for contemplating the role of place in contemporary art. Through February 23rd, 2014.
