The art world has recently witnessed an international phenomenon, literally "red hot" in its pulsating energy, as new artists from Asia have been redefining the parameters of the contemporary scene. Featuring works from an extraordinary private collection in Houston, this book surveys the most innovative art trends coming out of Japan, China, South Korea, and Vietnam. The spotlight focuses on the generation of artists who emerged after the political and economic upheavals of the late 1980s and early 1990s, among them Takashi Murakami, Chen Wenling, and the Luo Brothers.

Alison de Lima Greene is curator of contemporary art and special projects, Vivian Li is curatorial assistant of Asian art, Elliott Zooey Martin is curatorial assistant of contemporary art and special projects, Christine Starkman is curator of Asian art, Anne Wilkes Tucker is the Gus and Lyndall Wortham Curator of Photography, and Peter C. Marzio is director, all at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Marisa C. Sánchez is assistant curator of modern and contemporary art at the Seattle Art Museum.
