Delight the palette
The Asia Art Archive’s annual auction presents an exciting selection of the region’s art
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.
