The Contemporary Asian Art Program at the National Museum of Asian Art encourages new and provocative ways of thinking about Asian art and culture today.

Whether drawing upon traditional Asian aesthetic and cultural traditions or new media concepts and practices, many Asian artists are playing a critical role in redefining our understanding of Asia and the development of global contemporary art. Since the 1990s, groundbreaking exhibitions and programs of modern and contemporary Asian art at the Sackler have featured works in a range of media by such artists as Isamu Noguchi, Xu Bing, Raghubir Singh, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Fiona Tan, Yayoi Kusama, Do-Ho Suh, Y.Z. Kami, Jananne Al-Ani, Anish Kapoor, and Ai Weiwei, among many others.
