Ok, it’s a sad rap reference but there was an interesting SFChronicle article by Kenneth Baker on the current Tutankhamun exhibit at the de Young Museum, which was first shown in 1979. In the article he writes “But what will we not be seeing that we might have in the de Young’s special exhibitions galleries during the nine-month span of “Tutankhamun”? What projects did FAMSF curators have to postpone or scrap altogether for the sake of the costly “Tut” gamble?” Which begs the question, what exhibit or some variation of it, would you like to see again at the Asian? (Refer to this list of past exhibits). Personally, I’d like to see Hokusai & Hiroshige (1998). These ukiyo-e prints are just awesome!
