Asia Week New York 2013
On March 15, Asia Week New York launches an eight-day extravaganza to tempt collectors, curators, scholars and Asian art aficionados the world over with a spectacular array of treasures that span a wide spectrum of specialties on offer from a top-tier roster of 43 international dealers. Many of these galleries will showcase contemporary work alongside traditional creations; others will shine the spotlight solely on present-day works. Among them are The Chinese Porcelain Company, Carole Davenport, China 2000 Fine Art, Dai Ichi Arts, Ltd., Joan B. Mirviss, Ltd. Kaikodo LLC, Kang Collection Korean Art, Lesley Kehoe Galleries, M. Sutherland Fine Arts, Ltd., and Erik Thomsen.
Asia Week New York draws an international coterie of collectors, curators and enthusiasts from every corner of the globe. Says Henry Howard-Sneyd, Chairman of Asia Week New York 2013 and Sotheby's Vice-Chairman Asian Art, Americas: “Asia Week is a crescendo of events we are proud to bring to New York. They augment the city’s already rich cultural holdings with world-class Asian art exhibitions, many of which might be worthy of display in any one of the city's top-tier museums.”
Asia Week New York unites an illustrious roster of international Asian art specialists—the largest number to date—along with five major auction houses and 17 world-renowned museums and Asian cultural institutions. All work together towards a singular purpose: that of weaving Asian art into the cultural fabric of New York and beyond. “Asia Week New York is a cosmopolitan event,” says Howard-Sneyd, “so it's only fitting that it takes place in one of the world's most cosmopolitan and cultured cities. For discerning, in-the-know collectors, curators, scholars and Asian art enthusiasts from all around the world, it has become an essential destination in March.”
Asia Week New York exhibitions, which are open and free to the public, will reveal the rarest and finest Asian exemplars of porcelain, jewelry, textiles, paintings, ceramics, sculpture, bronzes, prints, photographs and jades, representing artistry, ingenuity and imagination from every quarter and period of Asia.
