Featuring over forty intriguing objects—both ancient and modern—from the Art Institute's collection, this volume explores the Silk Road's fascinating historical and contemporary significance. Ranging from ancient Chinese tomb figures to works by such contemporary artists as Lalla Essaydi, the selections reflect an intense exchange between cultures and provide new ways of looking at and thinking about Eastern and Western art.
