Asian Art Museum


1,623 views 1 month ago
Beautiful or bizarre? Ravishing or repulsive? When it comes to viewing art, it's all in the eye of the beholder. Artworks from the Asian Art Museum and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art—appearing together for the first time—invite you to get personal and explore what "gorgeous" means to you. Come take a look, engage in some one-on-one with the objects, and see what happens. On view at the Asian Art Museum from June 20 through September 14, 2014. http://www.asianart.org/gor... Show less

Gorgeous Play

In conjunction with exhibition, "Gorgeous," at the Asian Art Museum (June 20 - September 14, 2014), staff of the Asian Art Museum, in partnership with 32K Productions and local travel writer Stuart Schuffman (Broke-Ass Stuart), traversed San Francisco over three days in March 2014. We challenged people to discuss extremes and ambiguities extending beyond conventional notions of beauty to be perceived as gorgeous.

The responses are divided into four video segments based on the following questions: What does gorgeous mean to you? What is something unexpected or surprising that you find gorgeous? What is something gorgeous that you love? What is something repulsive that you find gorgeous?

A special thanks to all the "gorgeous" interviewees. Produced by Lorraine Goodwin; cinematography and editing by 32K Productions: Chris Tipton-King, Sarah Altshuler, and Javier Briones; interviews by Stuart Schuffman and Lorraine Goodwin. © Asian Art Museum, 2014
