We Do Not Dream Alone is the fully illustrated catalogue (produced in conjunction with the inaugural edition of the Triennial) which documents, in stunning detail, the exhibition through critical essays and works by over forty contemporary Asian and Asian American artists and artist groups spanning Asia, Australia, the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas.

Launched in the fall of 2020 by Asia Society, the Triennial is a festival of art, ideas, and innovation. The first initiative of its kind in the United States, the Asia Society Triennial is an ambitious recurring multi-venue, multimedia initiative across New York City with an exhibition of contemporary arts at its centre. The catalogue provides a unique forum for engagement with the rich tapestry of Asian cultures that make up a significant, yet historically under-explored and underrepresented demographic within New York City.
