The New York Times reports that Vishakha N. Desai will take over as President of The Asia Society, “the first woman and the first Asian-American to head the organization.”
Ms. Desai’s appointment continues this organization’s evolution from an elite club of Foreign Service hands — devotees of Asian culture, most of them white and male — to a center with a broad cultural and educational purpose covering more than 30 countries, with offices in Washington, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Hong Kong, Manila, Shanghai and Melbourne, Australia.
May we expect to see more art exhibits from South Asia?
