Photos: Asia Society Members Celebrate and Discover 'Secrets of the Sea'

Asia Society Museum hosted a special evening last month for Asia Society members and VIP guests to preview its spring exhibition Secrets of the Sea: A Tang Shipwreck and Early Trade in Asia. Members mingled and enjoyed conversation, wine, and Peranakan hors d’oeuvres by Michelin star chef Malcolm Lee, who traveled from Singapore for the opening. The exhibition brings the precious contents of a shipwreck discovered off Belitung Island in the Java Sea to American audiences for the first time.

The exhibition is on view at Asia Society Museum through June 4, 2017. 

Secrets of the Sea: A Tang Shipwreck and Early Trade in Asia is co-organized by Asia Society and the Asian Civilisations Museum, Singapore. The reception was co-presented by Asia Society Museum and the Singapore Tourism Board.
