In keeping with the objectives defined during its first year in 2015, ASIA NOW, Europe’s first boutique art fair devoted to contemporary Asian art, continues its exploration of emerging scenes and more established artists from 18 to 22 October 2017. For its third year, ASIA NOW welcomes around thirty Asian and Western galleries recognised as being highly influential in promoting and supporting contemporary artists from Asia at an international level.
ASIA NOW continues to showcase the value of artists from a group of more than 10 countries, from China to Japan, and to present the new perspectives and issues for contemporary Asian art and its market: the value of its artists, its potential for development and its rising stars. ASIA NOW asserts once again its commitment to deciphering the Asian art scene, understanding its evolution, its transformation, its issues and above all its true nature.
As an ideal platform for dialogue and interaction dedicated to contemporary artistic creation, this year ASIA NOW addresses in greater depth the Korean artistic scene through a special programme coordinated by Korean curator Joanne Kim, in collaboration with the Busan Biennale curatorial team.
The fair also renews its association with Christie’s for the Design Project, presented this year by Studio MVW.
