The Asia Week New York Association announces that 46 international galleries and 5 auction houses will participate in Asia Week New York 2016, the nine-day celebration of Asian art and culture that spans the metropolitan region from March 10 through 19, 2016. Says Lark Mason, Chairman of Asia Week New York: “For connoisseurs and collectors who want to immerse themselves fully in the wonders of the Far East, they know there is a once-a-year celebration that they must attend. And it’s no wonder. Asia Week combines top-flight galleries and world-renowned Asian art specialists for over a week of outstanding events and exhibitions – all sprinkled around the world’s most exhilarating city, New York!”
According to Mason, nine new galleries have joined the roster: Berwald Oriental Art (Chinese ceramics, pottery, sculpture, and works of art, London); DAG Modern (modern Indian art, New York); FitzGerald Fine Arts (Chinese ceramics and contemporary art, New York); Gallery Japonesque (contemporary Japanese ceramics and works of art, San Francisco); Alan Kennedy (Chinese textiles and paintings, Santa Monica); Laurence Miller Gallery (Japanese photography, New York); Renaud Montméat Art d’Asie (Indian and Himalayan Art, Paris); Phoenix Ancient Art (Chinese bronzes, New York); and Tenzing Asian Art (Hindu and Buddhist art, San Francisco).
The 2016 edition of Asia Week New York continues to offer a non-stop schedule of gallery open houses, auctions at Bonhams, Christie’s, Doyle, iGavel, and Sotheby’s, exhibitions, lectures, symposia and special events. To celebrate the week’s festivities, a private, invitation-only reception, jointly hosted with the Department of Asian Art of The Metropolitan Museum of Art will once again take place there on March 14. A comprehensive guide with maps will be available at participating galleries, auction houses and cultural institutions, starting February 2016 and online at asiaweekny.com. Emphasizing the strength of interest from Chinese-speaking buyers, a Chinese version of the website is available at cn.asiaweekny.com.
