Video: 'Why Zao? Why Now?'
On Monday, Asia Society Museum hosted a special members-only opening event for the new fall exhibition No Limits: Zao Wou-Ki. Members enjoyed light refreshments before a special lecture delivered by Dr. Melissa Walt, a research associate at Colby College and guest curator of the exhibition. Walt explored the various influences that shaped Zao Wou-Ki's artistic vision and his role in the global abstraction movement.
Watch the video above for the full presentation.
The exhibition is on view at Asia Society Museum from September 9, 2016, through January 8, 2017, and will be on view at Colby College Museum of Art from February 4 through June 4, 2017.
