During the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, American artists and thinkers began to explore the possibilities of Asian culture and ideas, and along the way created a new understanding of existence, nature, and consciousness. Even a cursory glance into such developments reveals that there are Asian influences within the world of Conceptual art, Minimalism, modern poetry, and so on. This remarkable exhibition from the Guggenheim Museum in New York explores this rather interesting set of intersections, and this site includes an online exhibition that looks into the major themes and artists of this movement, which include John La Farge, James McNeill Whistler, Mark Tobey, Isamu Noguchi, John Cage, Jack Kerouac, and Jasper Johns. The exhibition is divided into smaller themes, and visitors can also make their way through a chronology of key events.
