January 2017 at Charles B. Wang Center
A Letter from the Director
As the world’s leading cultural center devoted to Asian arts and culture, the Charles B. Wang Center celebrates the history, traditions, contemporary issues, and arts of Asia. Since Charles B. Wang founded the center fifteen years ago, it has shaped our understanding of Asia in every aspect, and showcased cultural forms and works from more than twenty different Asian countries.
This season, we have even more engaging programs for you to enjoy, including exhibitions of the African Diaspora in India and travel photographs of countries in Asia, hands-on Asian craft workshops, documentary films on Asian cuisine, and several performances. Each program offers compelling narratives that will connect you to fascinating time periods and subjects of Asia, ones that still inspire artists and scholars today.
