New Mao's Golden Mangoes and the Cultural Revolution
Place: China Institute - New York 10065, 125 East 65th Street, USA
Date: Sep 18, 2014 to Apr 26, 2015
Detail: In 1968, China was in a brief “mango-fever.” After receiving a gift of mangoes from the Pakistani foreign minister, Mao Zedong sent the fruit to the “Worker-Peasant Mao Zedong Thought Propaganda Teams.” Mangoes, then unfamiliar in China, became a temporary symbol of Chairman Mao’s benevolence and love for the people. This exhibition of mango-related objects explores the interaction of material culture and politics during this period.

New Life of Cats: Selections from the Hiraki Ukiyo-e Collection
Place: Japan Society Gallery - New York, NY 10017, 333 East 47th Street, USA
Date: Mar 13, 2015 to Jun 07, 2015
Detail: Since arriving in Japan aboard Japanese ships transporting sacred Buddhist scriptures from China in the mid-sixth century, cats have proceeded to purr and paw their way into the heart of Japanese life, folklore, and art. Life of Cats: Selections from the Hiraki Ukiyo-e Collection illustrates the depth of this mutual attraction by mining the wealth of bravura depictions of cats to be found in ukiyo-e woodblock prints of the Edo Period (1615-1867). The exhibition is divided into five sections: Cats and People, Cats as People, Cats versus People, Cats Transformed and Cats and Play. 90 ukiyo-e prints in the exhibition are on loan from the esteemed Hiraki Ukiyo-e Foundation whose holdings are revered in Japan. Select prints, paintings, sculptures, and other works borrowed from U.S. collections complement these prints, making the exhibition over 120 artworks. With cross-cultural and multi-generational appeal, Life of Cats takes viewers on a wild ride through Japan’s love affair with our feline friends.

Roughly 50 items will be replaced with new works halfway through Life of Cats—Rotation 1 will be on view from March 13 until April 26; Rotation 2 will be on view from April 29 until June 7.
