Stanford University’s Cantor Arts Center Creates Asian American Art Initiative
The Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University in California has established the Asian American Art Initiative (AAAI) as part of an effort to acquire, preserve, exhibit, and study art related to Asian American and Asian diaspora artists. The initiative’s founding co-directors are Aleesa Alexander, assistant curator of American art at the Cantor, and Marci Kwon, assistant professor in Stanford’s department of art and art history. It is anchored by the museum’s acquisition of 233 ceramic masks by Ruth Asawa and 141 pieces from the Michael Donald Brown collection of works by Asian American artists from 1880 to 1996.
