Dreaming Together: New-York Historical Society and Asia Society Museum

October 23, 2020 - September 2021
Share

As part of the Asia Society TriennialWe Do Not Dream Alone—a multi-venue festival of art, ideas, and innovation—Dreaming Together is the first collaboration between the New-York Historical Society and Asia Society Museum. More than 35 interwoven works drawn from both art collections generate dialogue about urban and natural environments, protest and rebellion, individuals and identities, and borders. Highlights include the Canal Street diptych (1992) from Martin Wong’s Chinatown series, 164-foot hanging scrolls by Dinh Q. Lê featuring abstractions of the World Trade Center towers (2016), and a dystopic video narrative of war and destruction by Shiva Ahmadi (2014). The result is a powerful reflection on the possibilities unleashed when people, cultures, and institutions dream in tandem. (Curated at New-York Historical by Wendy N. E. Ikemoto, curator of American art)    

Exhibitions at New-York Historical are made possible by Dr. Agnes Hsu-Tang and Oscar Tang, the Saunders Trust for American History, the Seymour Neuman Endowed Fund, and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. WNET is the media sponsor.
