Center for the Art of East Asia

CAEA draws inspiration from trends in traditional art history and in contemporary culture in its studies of East Asian art. As the societies of Korea, Japan, and China are interacting to an ever-greater extent with other nations and are playing larger roles in contemporary culture and international affairs, so too is there an increasing concentration of interest in Asian art and visual culture as well as cross-fertilization of traditions through cultural interactions.
