The Asia Art Archive celebrates its 15th anniversary with the most exciting auction gala yet
Practise shooting those hands high in the air because the Asia Art Archive’s annual auction gala is set to be a battleground this year. Taking place at the China Club on November 14, it will feature more than 70 works donated by top galleries and artists from across the globe. The highlights include works by Lee Kit, Yoko Ono, Wucius Wong, Liu Wei, Zhang Xiaogang, Wang Dongling, Song Dong and Nobuyoshi Araki. You can see the artworks at a preview exhibition staged in partnership with Christie’s at The Space on Hollywood Road from November 10-13. The AAA was founded in 2000 to collect information about Asian contemporary art and facilitate public access to it.
