Installed | Proximities: What Time Is It There? at the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco

The artcore journal series Installed are posts for the artcore (b)log that include written information provided by the institution, gallery, or artist’s website along with a selection of images taken by an artcore correspondent. The initiative is to provide readers with the photographer’s unique perspective of exhibitions, performances, and/or events in situ. The artcore (b)log is a platform for new series that are posted continuously, in addition to the biannual issues but do not necessarily reflect the current theme. If you are interested in participating as a correspondent for the Installed series on the artcore (b)log please contact us directly for more information.

Continuing its expanded focus on exhibiting contemporary art, the Asian Art Museum presents Proximities, a series of three intimate exhibitions of recent and newly created artworks exploring the wide, elusive range of Asia through the varied perspectives of Bay Area artists. Guest curated by Glen Helfand, the exhibitions each feature 8-12 artworks—paintings, sculpture, video, installations, plus related programs—and are organized around cultural themes that resonate across all points of Asia: real and imagined landscapes; family/community; and trade/commerce. The artworks on view reflect the artists’ “proximity” to Asia and Asian history.  – Asian Art Museum press release
