The Faces of Ruth Asawa is a single-object, long-term installation of 233 ceramic face masks Asawa created of friends, family members, and fellow artists. This is the first of three exciting exhibitions related to the Asian American Art Initiative opening at the Cantor in 2022.
Explore Asian American and Asian diaspora artists and their work at the Cantor, upcoming exhibitions and events. This recently established initiative is a significant effort to acquire, preserve, display and research Asian American art.
Mourning Rituals is a performance-based video reimagining the Korean ssitkimgut ritual, during which the spirits of the deceased are cleansed and guided into the afterlife.
This exhibition surveys ways of “being” in the landscape, encompassing common activities like sight-seeing, recreation, and play, and affective states like joy, intimacy, affinity, and belonging.
Against the typical history of 1930s photography that views the work of this period as primarily documentary, this exhibition contends that a key goal for artists of this period was to use photography to ignite the imagination.
