Asia Society Museum presents the first solo New York museum exhibition of Yoshihiro Suda (b. 1969, Japan), as part of an ongoing series of exhibitions in which contemporary Asian and Asian American artists are invited to create a new work inspired by the Society’s Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller Collection of traditional Asian art. For Yoshihiro Suda: In Focus (October 6, 2009–February 7, 2010), the artist has conceived an installation in which his new work will be shown alongside objects selected from the Rockefeller Collection.

Suda is known for his exquisitely realistic sculptures of plants and flowers created in the tradition of Japanese wood carving. For this exhibition, the artist will create a new sculpture of a white magnolia blossom based on a flower he found in Central Park. For the installation at Asia Society, Suda has chosen to show his new work alongside seven works from the Rockefeller Collection, all of which are in shades of white. The In Focus exhibition series strives to highlight innovation in contemporary art while presenting Asia Society’s traditional collection in unique ways.
