HOMEwork: Selections from the Asia Society Museum Collection


As modern-day lifestyles become increasingly fast-paced and transient, the distinctions between personal and public space, work and leisure have become blurred. Many of the works by the nine artists featured in the exhibition address issues of labor, while others examine the resiliency of communities in the face of environmental changes, whether man-made or through forces of nature. This exhibition features highlights from the Asia Society Museum’s contemporary art collection.
