Prints by artists from China, Japan, and Thailand showcase the AMAM's growing collection of contemporary Asian art. Works by Arakawa, Haoyu Xu, Tomiyuki Sakuta, Boonme Sangkhum, and Noda Tetsuya demonstrate a variety of techniques and subject matter, from a woodblock print recording a visit to Israel to a mezzotint reflecting on the natural cycles of life and death central to the Buddhist understanding of impermanence.
