Flower Power: From the Refined to the Revolutionary, Find Meaning in Every Bloom
In Asian art, flowers speak a language all their own. Where a lotus blooms or cherry blossoms flutter to the ground, a story is told. Dive into the symbolism of six significant blooms: the lotus, plum blossom, cherry blossom, chrysanthemum, tulip, and rose. The enduring importance of these flowers is shared through gloriously gilded screens, sleek lacquers, rare porcelains, striking sculptures, pop art, and sensory-igniting participatory installations that speak to today's issues, from climate change to social activism.
