Currently on exhibit at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, “The Third Mind: American Artists Contemplate Asia, 1860-1989,” explores Asian influences in American art.
Holland Cotter reviews the show in The Herald Tribune and calls it “a strange show, mostly good-strange, often beautiful-strange, and for sure long overdue.”
