ASIA ART ARCHIVE GALA DINNER

State of the Art

Hong Kong Tatler - - Faces -

A lively per­for­mance by the Hong Kong New Mu­sic En­sem­ble was one of many high­lights at the an­nual gala dinner of the Asia Art Archive (AAA). Art afi­ciona­dos, cre­atives and col­lec­tors alike gath­ered at the China Club for the much-an­tic­i­pated event, which kicked off with a gra­cious wel­come speech by co-founder and di­rec­tor Claire Hsu-vu­chot. As al­ways, the silent and live auc­tions were highly pop­u­lar, with no­table lots in the live auc­tion in­clud­ing works by Ja­panese artist Takashi Mu­rakami, Ja­panese pho­tog­ra­pher Daido Moriyama and Chi­nese con­tem­po­rary artist Yan Lei. An­other high point was the screen­ing of a video spe­cially cre­ated for the oc­ca­sion to show­case the AAA’S work on the Ha Bik-chuen Archive Pi­lot Project. The fam­ily of the late sculp­tor and print­maker had in­vited the AAA in 2013 to as­sess, map and digi­tise Ha’s work to make it avail­able to a wider au­di­ence.
