Adrian Wong's background in research-based psychology is reflected in the way he prepares months before beginning a project. He delves into historical archives, combs through photographs and memorabilia, and conducts interviews. Watch his interview with Classical Feng Shui Practitioner Sasha Yungju Lee in preparation for his installation in the exhibition Phantoms of Asia: Contemporary Awakens the Past on view at the Asian Art Museum from May 18–September 2, 2012.
This lecture series, organized by the Society for Asian Art, explores narrative using Asian art—how myths, legends, histories and moral precepts have been transmitted through visual means. Topics range from sculptural reliefs and murals used to educate pilgrims at famous religious sites to works created primarily for entertainment. Contemporary storytelling is also addressed via lectures on Bollywood and manga produced by San Francisco's Henry Yoshitaka Kiama.
