Global Asias

Contemporary Asian and Asian American Art from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

Edited by Carolyn Vaughan. Foreword by Erin M. Coe. Text by Chang Tan, Jordan D. Schnitzer.

Fifteen artists draw on an array of motifs and techniques to construct diverse “Asias” in a modern global context. This book examines the subtly subversive characteristics of contemporary Asian and Asian American art. The 15 artists represented here were born in Japan, China, Korea, Vietnam, Argentina or the United States; all are adept at crossing borders both physical and material. Artists include: Kwang Young Chun, Jacob Hashimoto, Manabu Ikeda, Jun Kaneko, Dinh Q. Lê, Hung Liu, Mariko Mori, Hiroki Morinoue, Takashi Murakami, Roger Shimomura, Do Ho Suh, Akio Takamori, Barbara Takenaga, Rirkrit Tiravanija and Patti Warashina.
