eady your pad­dles and prep your wal­lets be­cause it’s time, once again, for the Asia Art Ar­chive’s an­nual live auc­tion and din­ner. Up for sale are 70 do­nated works by artists who are Asian or work­ing in Asia. If you’re plan­ning on bag­ging a mas­ter­piece, be sure to stop by Christie’s in Alexandra House, which will host a pre­view of the works from Novem­ber 15 to 18. High­lights this year in­clude ink paint­ings by Qiu Deshu, Liu Gu­osong, Lan Zhenghui and Wang Meng­sha, as well as works by Hong Kong artists Fung Ming Chip, Sam­son Young, Wong Wai-yin, Luke Ching, An­nie Wan and Tsang Chui-mei. On­line bid­ding will open on Novem­ber 7 and run un­til the live auc­tion and din­ner at the China Club on Novem­ber 19. All funds raised will go di­rectly to the ar­chive, which was founded in 2000 to col­lect in­for­ma­tion about, and fa­cil­i­tate ac­cess to, Asian con­tem­po­rary art. The an­nual auc­tion raises more than 50 per cent of the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s bud­get each year, mak­ing it the most im­por­tant event on the ar­chive’s cal­en­dar.
