Curators Circles: Gingko Society

Enjoy behind-the-scenes access to the most important collection of East Asian art under one roof. Examine firsthand the visual arts of China, Japan, and Korea from prehistoric times to the present, including paintings, sculpture, prints, decorative arts, and new media. With our curators, leading experts, and artists, hear about the latest research and insights into East Asian art, and explore the department’s acquisitions, exhibitions, and important projects. Funding in previous years has supported the cataloguing of previously under-researched collections through the purchase of equipment for registration photography.

Annual membership is $1,500.*
