Currently on view at Chinese Culture Center is the exhibition, Present Tense: Future Perfect (June 13 – August 29, 2015). Present Tense: Future Perfect highlights exceptional artists of Asian descent working in today’s Bay Area graduate study programs. In the third edition of this exhibition series, the Visual Art Center recognizes the vital presence of Asian and Asian American artists in the Bay Area art scene. It is a showcase of artists at a key juncture of their developing careers. Rather than a broad survey, the exhibition itself is designed to give each artist room to express their specific themes, mediums, and formal inquiries. The show honors these artists in a city that is increasingly difficult to navigate career wise due to rising rents and limited venues.
