Contemplating East Asia: Mark Tobey and Sam Francis

20 June - 31 August 2014

This exhibition focuses on how two American artists participated in networks of influence and exchange at the beginning of the Cold War. Sharing in a new internationalism that emerged within circles of Abstract Expressionists, Mark Tobey and Sam Francis each maintained an enduring engagement with East Asia through reading, writing, and travel. 


Organized by Russell Gullette, 2014 Joan and Robert Huntley Art History Scholar.
