Carrying forth a mission to celebrate and promote Asian art in New York City, Asia Week New York is a collaboration of top-tier Asian art specialists, major auction houses, and world-renowned museums and Asian cultural institutions in the metropolitan New York area. The Asia Week New York Association concentrates its efforts on presenting one non-stop, event-filled week in March of every year, drawing collectors and curators from every corner of the United States and an international clientele from across the globe. The annual event fulfills the broader aim of affirming the importance of Asian art in the citywide—and nationwide—cultural scene.
From 2014 to 2018, a steady roster of 45 to 50 dealers continued to present museum-quality exhibitions across midtown and the Upper East Side. Each year, the annual reception was held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which opened all of its magnificent Asian art galleries for the occasion and offered guests curator-led tours of the major exhibitions.
