I am delighted to announce that Nasim Nasr has been invited to be one of the participating artists in the New York Triennial of Asia at the Asia Society Museum, New York, in 2020. 

The New York Triennial of Asia will be the first recurring exhibition initiative in the U.S. dedicated to contemporary art from and about Asia and will serve as a platform for intellectual exchange about, and direct engagement with the arts and culture from the region. It will encourage inclusivity and access to this material outside the traditional platform of the Museum and will attract new audiences. The scope of the Triennial reflects the diversity of contemporary art from Asia and the diaspora, and will celebrate and reflect the rich tapestry of Asian cultures that comprise a significant, yet historically underserved, demographic within New York City.

The inaugural edition, entitled “We Do Not Dream Alone”, will be co-curated by Michelle Yun, Senior Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, and Boon Hui Tan, Vice President for Global Arts & Cultural Programs and Director of Asia Society Museum.

Nasim will be showing two series of works: Beshkan (Breakdown) (2013) and 33 Beads (2018).

This project is a city-wide initiative with venues including Asia Society Museum, Governors Island, Times Square, and Pioneer Works. The exhibition dates will be from June 5 to August 9, 2020.
