The Third Mind: American Artists Contemplate Asia, 1860-1989
Guggenheim Museum
"This exhibition traces how Asian art, literature, and philosophy were transmitted and transformed within American cultural and intellectual currents, influencing the articulation of new visual and conceptual languages. It explores how American art evolved through a process of appropriation and integration of Asian sources that developed from the 1860s through the 1980s, when globalization came to eclipse earlier, more deliberate modes of cultural transmission and reception." Focuses on the following seven themes: 1) Aestheticism & Japan; 2) Landscapes of the Mind; 3) Modern Poetry & Dance; 4) Postwar Abstract Art; 5) Buddhism & the Neo-Avant-Garde; 6) Ecstatic Minimalism; 7) Performance & Video Art.
