Drawing from the collection, the exhibition looks at multifaceted representations of the body in East Asia from the 19th century to the present. Organized chronologically and thematically, the exhibition has four sections which respectively examine: 1) Westerners' ethnographic interest in Asian bodies and Asian artifacts of Western bodies made for export; 2) local and global impact of wars and politics in the East Asian region; 3) cultivation of nationalism and common sense of belonging through normalizing diverse peoples and regulating public spaces; 4) artistic expressions that seek to transcend corporeal boundaries and question anthropocentric views. As a whole, the exhibition aims to open up multidisciplinary inquiries into issues such as colonial history and Orientalism, global exchange of material and knowledge, rise of nation states, myths and spectacles, body politics, and biological and technological evolutions.
