Highlights of Asian Art in the Collection  
The Gallery has a long history of presenting Asian art in its exhibitions and is working to strengthen its holdings of contemporary art from Asia in the permanent collection by acquiring key works by major artists, particularly those who work in photography, use conceptual strategies and explore ideas of globalization and identity.
