Through the Years: Selections from Our Asian Collection

Through the Years: Selections from the Asian Art Collection is an expanded reflection on the KIAs holdings of East Asian art collected during the past 50 years. Featuring works that span from the seventh century BCE to present day, this exhibition will highlight artworks that include Chinese painting, Japanese printmaking, decorative arts, and contemporary ceramics. Contemporary artists Arnold Chang and Sunghyun Moon, as well as renowned potter Shji Hamada and kiyo-e printmaker Hiroshige Ando, are among other notable artists.

Through the Years will display some of the finest works in the museums collection, acquired through the generosity of private donors and the Joy Light East Asian Art Acquisition and Exhibition Fund. The growing collection of Asian art and the work of internationally renowned artists shown over the past 10 years has allowed the KIA to offer its patrons a fuller understanding of the history of art and the world around them. This dynamic display invites viewers to explore a range of themes, subjects, and the innovative use of materials. Not only will the virtuosity of these artists be evident in the works on paper, ceramics, and sculpture, but it will also reveal the vast contributions of East Asian Art to the fabric of art history.
