Ellen Pearlman, New York -based writer and editor of the Brooklyn Rail who lives part time in China, writes about The Third Mind: American Artists Contemplate Asia, 1860–1989 at the Guggenheim Museum in New York responding to the influence of eastern thought on western art. The exhibition is an ambitious academic effort to document the global narrative unfolding in a contemporary context.

From January 30 to April 19, 2009, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City presented The Third Mind: American Artists Contemplate Asia, 1860–1989, an exhibition on the dynamic and complex impact of Asian art, literature, music, and philosophical concepts on American art. It features 250 works by 100 artists in painting, sculpture, video art, installations, works on paper, film, live performance, and literary works, and draws from over 100 major museum and private collections in North America, Europe, and Japan.
