From 1959 to 1981, Asia Society's New York headquarters, called Asia House, hosted frequent exhibitions and performing arts programs. In the above photo from April 11, 1972, dancer Carolina Varga Dinicu (also known as "Morocco") performs for a crowd at an Asia House Gallery benefit. The event was held in conjunction with the exhibition From the Bosporus to Samarkand: Flatwoven Rugs.
Each week for "Throwback Thursday" (#TBT), we'll reach into our archives to find a photo from the organization's nearly 60-year history. Some photos will feature important moments, some will feature important people, and others still will just be photos we love. Do you have an Asia Society photo you'd like us to consider including in this series? Please email the photo and any related details to email@example.com (we regret that we won't be able to respond directly to each inquiry).
