Join Asia Society to celebrate its upcoming exhibition Modern Twist: Contemporary Japanese Bamboo Art. This exhibition explores the innovative shape bamboo art has taken since the mid-twentieth century, featuring a stunning selection of works from 16 Japanese artists. With rare wall-hung installations and works never before seen in Houston, this exhibition both engages and educates audiences about this vibrant cultural art form.

Enjoy complimentary admission to the exhibition and a reception with light bites.

 

The exhibition is guest-curated by Dr. Andreas Marks, of Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Collection of the Clark Center, and organized by International Arts and Artists, Washington, D.C. The touring exhibition is generously supported by the E. Rhodes & Leona B. Carpenter Foundation and the Nomura Foundation.

Nancy C. Allen is a presenting sponsor for this exhibition at Asia Society Texas Center. Major support also comes from Chinhui Juhn and Eddie Allen, Leslie and Brad Bucher, Nancy and Robert J. Carney, and the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance. Generous funding also provided by The Anchorage Foundation of Texas, The Clayton Fund, Ann Wales, and through contributions from the Friends of Exhibitions, a premier group of individuals and organizations committed to bringing exceptional visual art to Asia Society Texas Center.
