From our masterpiece calligraphy exhibition, Out of Character. Because what is calligraphy without intoxicating/intoxicated poetry? This is a glimpse from a long, epic handscroll by Xiong Tingbi. If you’ve seen this show, let us know what you think.
Museums are pretty romantic spots. Here’s a cute couple in one of our Phantoms exhibition galleries. Photo by Instagram user Anton_3000.
This page was from my last trip to San Francisco’s Asian Art Museum. I’m planning a revisit soon.
They cycle the art displayed, so see if you can spot these items on your visit.
We love seeing stuff like this. Love the octopus in the upper left. All these pieces are infused with distinctive personalities through the artist’s creativity and deft hand.
Two years ago SF partied hard with the World Series Parade, which ended up in our neighborhood. We had quite a view, with revelers on our door steps. We’re looking forward to celebrating again this Wednesday. Cheers, San Francisco.
Out of Character: Decoding Chinese Calligraphy is now open.
Love the first photo of the two curators gazing at the fantastic installation. They, more than most people, realize how significant it is to have this special calligraphy displayed in such dramatic, open fashion. Really a dynamic, stylish presentation of China’s highest art form.

“Hey guys, don’t mind me, just got a minor skin problem on my face right now.” Still, he tastes really good. Boy, we sure are excited about what’s comin’ in Feburary. Stay tuned.
At our August 23 after-hours MATCHA event, Dohee Lee illuminated Korean shamanism (interacting with spirits) through her own particular multi-disciplinary framework.
The first photo was a true wow moment. During a mini-performance, Lee sat down next to this fellow, a gent with a visitor guide in his lap, and what ensued was some great visitor participation. He went along with whatever she threw his way, and did not flinch when she got extremely close to his face, noses touching. The tension and suspense was great. When she opened her hat contraption, he took off his hat.
