Asia Week New York Celebrates 10 Years in the Antiquities Market

Posted by Bobby Leesman on

It’s become the meeting of the year for specialists and collectors of Asian art and antiquities. Now, Asia Week New York is back for its 10th year – and we’ve got all the details.

70 galleries and museums

Asia Week New York brings together auction houses, galleries, museums, and cultural institutions from around the world. In fact, this year, 48 of the galleries involved are international exhibitors.

As well as exhibitions, the event celebrates leaders in Asian art and antiquities. The Metropolitan Museum of Art will host a private ceremony and reception to honor collectors and museum creators for their services to Asian art in North America.

10 days of exhibitions and auctions

Some galleries will open preview exhibitions for Asia Week New York on March 13th. But the real action begins with the famed Open House Weekend on March 16th and 17th. Most exhibitions will stay open for a full week, through to the next Saturday.

Six auction houses will run special auctions for Asia Week New York, with items from China, India,  South-East Asia, the Himalayas, Japan and Korea. Many museums are offering special tours and lectures, including the Newark Museum. And special events are scheduled at the China Institute, Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art, and the Rubin Museum of Art.
