Resource Type: 
Keyword Results: 

Where is the line between history and mythology? In Extracted, artist Ranu Mukherjee eclipses the boundaries between the two, placing them in the same universe. Commissioned for the Asian Art Museum’s 50th anniversary, this exhibition drew inspiration from California’s Gold Rush, the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, the ancient text The Classic of Mountain and Seas, and the museum’s own collection. Extracted: A Trilogy by Ranu Mukherjee was presented at the Asian Art Museum between November 6, 2015 - August 14, 2016.
