Organized by Asia Society  Museum with the support of the  Smithsonian Asian Pacific  American Center, Lucid  Dreams and Distant Visions: South Asian Art in the Diaspora shines a spotlight on the work of nineteen contemporary artists from the South Asian  diaspora. As individuals living between worlds, diaspora artists often negotiate notions  of home and issues relating to  migration, gender, race, and  memory in their practice.
