Join Asia Society Texas Center to celebrate its upcoming exhibition, Sangram Majumdar.
Contemporary artist Sangram Majumdar emphasizes shared points of connection between seemingly disparate cultures, and his paintings act as palimpsests, layered with a range of historical references that are lost and recovered as the images unfold. His work refers to the cyclical nature of history and the catalytic connections between major cultural centers in Asia and the west. The exhibition at Asia Society is the first-ever exhibition of his works in Texas.
Enjoy a special preview of the exhibition and a reception with light bites.
This exhibition at Asia Society is made possible through major support from Chinhui Juhn and Eddie Allen, Nancy C. Allen, Leslie and Brad Bucher, and the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance. Generous funding also provided by The Clayton Fund, Kathy and Glen Gondo, Ann Wales, and through contributions from the Friends of Exhibitions, a premier group of individuals and organizations committed to bringing exceptional visual art to Asia Society Texas Center.
