DESCRIPTION

Be the first to see our new exhibition First Look: Collecting Contemporary at the Asian. We've been collecting outstanding contemporary art for the past 15 years, and now we're ready to show off the highlights. The museum will be buzzing with beats spun by Hakobo, and Museum Hack's team of renegade tour guides will convert all you museum naysayers into museum lovers. The evening's centerpiece will be a conversation at 7 PM with First Look artists Manuel Ocampo and Chen Man, moderated by assistant curator of contemporary art Dr. Karin Oen.

 Grab a refreshment at the cash bar, cast your eyes on First Look, fight “museum fatigue” with Museum Hack, and be inspired by contemporary artists' work and processes as described in their own words.
