Megacities Asia

Megacities Asia – Lecture

We are pleased to have Laura Weinstein, the Ananda Coomaraswamy Curator of South Asian and Islamic Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, give us a lecture on the exhibit prior to the viewing.

Megacities Asia, the largest contemporary exhibition ever organized at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), invites visitors to walk under, through, along, around or inside large-scale sculptures and installations that examine issues of urbanization. Eleven artists offer 19 works created from accumulations of objects found in their home “megacities”—those with populations of 10 million or more—in China, India and Korea, which have seen unprecedented development over the past 50 years. On view from April 3–July 17, Megacities Asia extends beyond the MFA’s Ann and Graham Gund Gallery into other exhibition and public spaces, onto the Museum’s front lawn and into the city beyond, with a sculpture presented in Marketplace Center near Faneuil Hall.
