DESCRIPTION

A group exhibition featuring 20 artists who share a common interest in borrowing, recycling and sampling from Asia for their content and commentary, referencing multiple aspects of the culture from Buddhism and Yoga to politics, ikebana and scholar’s rocks.

Acknowledging the location of Oceanside Museum of Art on the literal edge of the Pacific Rim, Facing West / Looking East presents artists who reach across the Pacific to East Asia, Southeast Asia and South Asia for their content and commentary. The 20 featured artists in this exhibition share a common interest in borrowing, recycling and sampling from the cultural cornucopia of today’s flat world where historical and geographical divisions are becoming increasingly irrelevant.
