Our limited-edition catalogue commemorates the exhibition Dreaming Together, which interweaves historical American art with contemporary Asian and diasporic Asian art to explore themes of identity, the urban and natural environments, and protest. The book design boasts open-stitch binding and a silk-screened title graphic on cloth-bound hardcover.
Essays by Wendy N. E. Ikemoto, Agnes Hsu-Tang, and Boon Hui Tan offer an insider’s look at the making and meaning of the exhibition and reflect upon the significance of a global view of Asian, American, and Asian-American art in today’s world. Entries on each object in the exhibition are accompanied by full-color reproductions and followed by a pictorial installation gallery.

Tip: One of the concepts behind the Dreaming Together catalogue cover is that it's meant to be a blank canvas upon which people can draw.
