(Re)collecting Southeast Asian Art at Cornell

Johnson Museum of Art
Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, 114 Central Ave, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

The Museum will be closed beginning Tuesday, December 14. Visit for information.

“(Re)collecting” signifies the active process of remembering and draws attention to the power of collections to elicit memories and histories and to act as participants in social and political change. This special installation showcases a collection of objects at the Johnson Museum that have been donated by alumni and faculty of the Cornell Southeast Asia Program (SEAP), beginning in the 1970s with gifts of Buddhist sculpture from Alexander Brown Griswold, SEAP visiting professor.

This installation was curated by Anissa Rahadiningtyas, curatorial assistant for Asian art at the Johnson and SEAP graduate student; Alexandra Dalferro, SEAP graduate student; and Astara Light, SEAP graduate student; under the supervision of Ellen Avril, chief curator and the Judith H. Stoikov Curator of Asian Art.
