Tales of the City: new focus

View from Macondray Lane

Exciting times are afoot here at Asian Art Brief. We relocated 10 days ago from the UK to the Bay Area. Yes, that's California, USA. The sun is shining as I write this.

Regular readers might remember that I travelled to California in February of this year, when I enjoyed shows such as Seduction at the San Francisco Asian Art Museum and Xu Bing at LACMA. When I wrote those posts, I had not expected to be living here before the year was out, but I'm glad it turned out to be a preview of things to come.

I'm looking forward to continue writing about the Asian art I see, and the exhibitions and books that I enjoy. It's a shame that we left before Asian Art in London 2015 but I couldn't ask for a better location and I saw my first show at the weekend - post to follow shortly.
