Portraiture Now: Asian American Portrait of Encounter
Event on 2012-05-31 11:30:00
Aug. 12, 2011 through Oct. 14, 2012.
The National Portrait Gallery and the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Program are collaborating on an exhibition that will be the Smithsonian’s first major showcase of contemporary Asian American portraiture. Through the groundbreaking work of seven talented artists from across the country and around the world, the exhibition offers provocative renditions of the Asian American experience. Their portraits of encounter offer representations against and beyond the stereotypes that have long obscured the complexity of being Asian in America.
Lead support for the exhibition, publication and related programs is provided by the Rebecca Houser Westcott Fund for “Portraiture Now.” Additional generous support is provided by Andrew S. Ree and the Joh Foundation.
