I was there with my family tonight around 7:30 or so and why was the museum closed? The website does not say anything about the early closure of tonight (Friday night). There were no posted signs, nor recorded messages when I called in front of the museum. It was so strange and we were very very disappointed.
Why does Asia Society New York feel it is not important enough to organize & resist the Indian state’s (ala Nuremberg laws) unconstitutional, outright discriminatory CAA & the anticipated dehumanizing NRC. Have you made any effort that I may have missed? I don’t see any commentary or any events on your page. Who are we scared of? What is basic state-sponsored violation of human rights not important to you?

Hey friends! I am a Chinese American artist with a focus in photography and performance. I will be having my very first solo show "掀起veil" at C'mon Everybody in Brooklyn, New York this month and the opening reception is this Friday at 7pm. "掀起veil“ is a documentation of the modern China from my perspective as a local and an outsider. It is about the things we were taught to conceal. It is about love, relationship, individuality, and censorship. All taken over a span of a year. All involve a red piece of fabric. Now, I am grateful and happy that I get a chance to share with all of you! I hope this event is a place that like-minded people can get together. If this topic interests you, please come by tomorrow.
