January 2021 at Charles B. Wang Center
A Letter from the Director
As we embark on our spring season, I feel compelled to begin this season with an acknowledgment of our community’s support over the past year. Admittedly, it has a challenge to manage the existential threats and instability of these confusing times, but we are delighted and heartened by the huge response from our audiences virtually. I am excited to welcome you this year to a new treasure trove of Asian art and culture.
Putting together exhibitions is one of my deepest passions, and it’s always a privilege to showcase beautiful and relevant art in this crazy, frustrating world. Our spring exhibition, Power, Protection, and Magic: The Art of Shamanism, will share both ancient wisdom and hope for a better future. Currently, we offer virtual and in-person options to view the exhibition, as well as a robust schedule of educational public programming. Please periodically check our website for policy updates as we expect to welcome our broader community back to the Wang Center this spring.
The year 2020 was a strange one, but this hasn’t stopped us from forging ahead. I look forward to you enjoying our new exhibition either virtually or in the gallery. I also hope you will join us for many virtual programs to celebrate the diversity of Asian art and culture.
Wishing you much health, as ever,
Jinyoung A. Jin
Director of Cultural Programs
