With a distinguished history of individual and institutional collecting, coupled with profound shifts in demography and a robust economy, Houston is poised to become a vital hub for contemporary Asian American art.

What does this portend for "traditional" relationships between collectors and artists? Against the backdrop of Asia Society Texas Center's inaugural exhibition, Contemporary Asian Art: Texas Connections, join native Houstonians artist Mel Chin and collector Jereann Chaney for a lively discussion exploring artistic practice, the social value of collecting, and the ties that bind.

Presented in collaboration with Houston Fine Art Fair 2012.
