Art Escapes: Virtual Tours Through Asia - Contemporary Art Anew with Abby Chen
Join the conversation! The Asian Art Museum’s collaborations with local and international artists, including Chanel Miller, are the talk of the town. Get a sneak peek at soaring installations and new gallery-scaled multimedia sculptures, and find out how the museum’s recent expansion has created a platform for artistic voices addressing some of today’s most pressing issues: visibility, inclusion, healing, togetherness, and connection.
Join us for a peek behind the screens — brand-new virtual tours led by Asian Art Museum curators showcase favorite objects, uncover hidden histories, and give you a taste of all we offer, from the oldest artworks in San Francisco to the city’s best new murals.
On Saturday afternoons, grab your preferred device, curl up on the couch, and embark on an illuminating tour through different museum galleries. With Zoom as your portal, and a specialist to guide you, you’ll have close-up encounters with works from our world-famous collection, revisit recent exhibitions, and preview new contemporary installations. Afterward, take part in a live, friendly conversation with one of our curators — all from the safety and comfort of home.
Focusing on a single subject at a time, each 20-minute tour is led by an expert who shares insights into millennia of craft and creativity and reveals the stories behind the art.
