AboutThe first initiative of its kind in the United States, the Asia Society Triennial is a festival of art, ideas, and innovation that focuses on contemporary art from and about Asia and the diaspora. The inaugural edition of the Triennial features more than forty artists working across disciplines from more than twenty countries. The title, We Do Not Dream Alone, is inspired by a line in Yoko Ono’s 1964 publication, Grapefruit—“A dream you dream alone may be a dream, but a dream two people dream together is a reality”—suggesting much-needed solace through the healing potential of art to unite and empower.

VenuesThe Asia Society Triennial takes place at Asia Society Museum, the Park Avenue Malls at East 70th Street, and Times Square Arts. Collateral events are hosted by institutions including the New-York Historical Society and Asia Society Hong Kong. With programs and exhibitions at multiple venues, the Triennial is accessible to broad audiences while providing a unique foundation from which featured artists create site-specific commissioned projects.

The Asia Society Triennial is cocurated by Michelle Yun Mapplethorpe, vice president for global artistic programs at Asia Society, director of Asia Society Museum, and artistic director of the Triennial; and Boon Hui Tan, founding artistic director of the Triennial.

Mountain River Jump! has chosen 49 Chinese animal idioms from dictionary, then illustrated for them and made them into 49 divinatory cards. We can see how our ancestors described human’s situation through animal idioms, while this kind of metaphors can be also found in Zhou Yi. Mountain River Jump! is using Cards of Chinese Animal Idioms to see what will come out when eastern cultural genes mix with fortunetelling in the context of contemporary world .

Mountain River Jump! is an artist duo founded in 2016 by twin sisters Huang Shan and Huang He, who were born in 1985. The duo has a variety of creative formats in art, often applying "divination consulting" as a performance to examine the potential of such art medium, and to interact with the audience at the intrinsic level. With their studies into Oriental mysticism and folklore, the artists pry open various topics of our contemporary society. They pay attention to the embodiment of mythological clues in a daily context, attempting to carry out "psychoanalysis" of the reality, and reflecting on the materialist culture within modern China and its psychological status. Huang Shan and Huang He presently work and live in Foshan, Guangdong.
