Asia Society Clouds Stretching for a Thousand Miles Ink in Asian Art

Asia Society Clouds Stretching for a Thousand Miles Ink in Asian Art celebrates the versatility and enduring influence of the calligraphic ink tradition across Asia. The works on view, selected from Asia Society Museum’s new acquisitions of contemporary ink and calligraphic art, highlight exemplary works by Gu Wenda, Minjung Kim, Qiu Zhijie, Sun Xun, and Wang Dongling. These contemporary works, displayed alongside two illuminated Qur’ans from China and Central Asia, reveal the innovative use of ink and calligraphy in visual expression, from the thirteenth century to the present, across Asia and the diaspora. — Asia Society
