Asia Society Texas presents the grand opening of "Explore Asia," an immersive exhibition highlighting five Asian countries across six unique experiences.The new $4.6 million permanent exhibition - the only interactive learning exhibition in Texas focused specifically on Asia - focuses on Asian art and culture and transforms the experience of visiting AST’s Yoshio Taniguchi-designed Center.

The grand opening weekend will include free access to the new exhibition, made possible by generous funding from the Ling and George Yang family, along with lion dances and a variety of family-friendly activities.

Through an immersive journey to China, India, Japan, South Korea, and Vietnam, guests of all ages can magically travel across time and space on a virtual bullet train, learn about delicious meals and treats (and where to find them in Houston), take the stage by participating in a drumming experience, and more.

Informed by several years of research and in consultation with an extensive group of scholars and community partners, "Explore Asia" is designed to spark curiosity and highlight the interconnectedness between the peoples of Asia, Houston, and the United States, building on AST’s belief in the power of art, dialogue, and ideas to combat bias and build a more inclusive society.
