Planning for a traveling exhibition, a catalog, and related public and educational programs exploring the influence of Asian art on American art, 1900-present.

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum requests a $40,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to plan "American Art and the East" (working title), an interpretive exhibition illuminating the dynamic and profound impact of Asian art and philosophical concepts on American artistic practices of the early modern (ca. 1900-1945), postwar avant-garde (1945-1980) and contemporary periods (1980-present). Premiering at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York in February 2009, the exhibition and related educational programs will trace how the material culture, artistic legacies and philosophical systems of Asia?specifically, the classical arts of India, China and Japan and the systems of Hindu, Tantric Buddhist, Zen Buddhist, and Daoist thought collectively admired as ?the East??were known, reconstructed and transformed by American cultural forces.
