Alternative Visions was the inaugural exhibition of the Gallery at Takashimaya, New York, for which Munroe presented the ink paintings of Chinese-born artist Liu Dan (b. 1953), who was little known at the time. It marked one of the first exhibitions to open the field of contemporary Chinese painting to consider experimentation among the post-Liberation generation linking classical and modern aesthetics, medium, and techniques.
