Description

The Crow Museum of Asian Art of The University of Texas at Dallas kicks off 2021 in a bold fashion with three exhibitions showcasing the powerful contemporary works of a Texas-based Asian woman artist, recent works by Japanese women ceramicists, and an exploration of one of the most iconic gods in Hindu culture.

Headlining the trio is Divine Spark, the second offering of the multi-year Texas Asian Women Artists exhibition series, which is dedicated to making visible the work of emerging and established Texas-based contemporary Asian women artists. Dr. Jacqueline Chao, the Crow Museum’s senior curator of Asian art, is the curator of all three exhibitions.

For her first solo exhibition at the Crow Museum, Dallas-based artist Kana Harada has created several new works during this time of global pandemic that blend messages of hope and positivity with visual innovations that create an imaginative universe of awe, wonder and intimacy. Divine Spark will be on view Jan. 30–Sept. 5 at the Crow Museum, located in the Dallas Arts District.

The two other exhibitions also opening on January 30 are:
-Born of Fire: Contemporary Japanese Women Ceramic Artists, which features stunning works by living Japanese women ceramic artists from the collection of Carol and Jeffrey Horvitz, and
-Vishnu: Across Time and Space, from the Museum’s vast collection.

Hours:
Closed Monday
Open Tuesday–Sunday 11am–5pm
