This group of multinational and intergenerational artists, chosen by curator Vijay Kumar, reflects a broad range of life experiences and aesthetic values. The artists interpret diverse subject matter—figurative, abstract and conceptual—in a variety of media, including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, video, sculpture and installation.

This traveling exhibition is presented as part of Asian Contemporary Art Week 2011 and the opening reception at the Queens Museum of Art is
