Asia Society is a not-for-profit educational organization dedicated to furthering the understanding of the countries and cultures of Asia. Founded in 1956 by John D.

It is the first overseas center of the 11 centers of Asia Society, which was founded in 1956 by John D. Rockefeller 3rd in New York as a not-for-profit, non-government educational organization.
As a leading platform for the discussion of Pan-Asian subjects and the impact of global concerns on Asia, we offer educational programs for a wide range of audience. In 2011, we hosted close to 100 programs, including lectures, exhibitions, performances, film screenings, tours, seminars and conferences. Over 97% of our programs are open to the public.
Sean Kelly Gallery was founded by its British-born owner in 1991 and operated privately in SoHo until 1995 when its first public space opened at 43 Mercer Street. During these formative years, it established a reputation for diverse, intellectually driven, unconventional exhibitions. The original list of artists represented included Marina Abramović, James Casebere, Callum Innes, Joseph Kosuth and Julião Sarmento – exemplifying the Gallery's commitment to presenting important, challenging contemporary art.
In 2001, Sean Kelly moved into a converted 7,000 square-foot industrial space on 29th Street in the Chelsea gallery district. The move to this new, spacious location enabled the Gallery to mount increasingly ambitious, museum-quality exhibitions to great critical acclaim. During its early period in Chelsea, the Gallery's roster of artists expanded to include such notable figures as Iran do Espírito Santo, Antony Gormley, Rebecca Horn and Frank Thiel. In the ensuing years, the Gallery undertook representation of Los Carpinteros, Leandro Erlich, Johan Grimonprez, Laurent Grasso, Tehching Hsieh and Anthony McCall.
In October 2012, Sean Kelly opened a new 22,000 square foot space at 475 Tenth Avenue in an historic 1914 building. Award-winning architect Toshiko Mori designed the two-story gallery, which opened with an exhibition of work by Antony Gormley. Toshiko Mori was awarded the AIA Design Award in Interiors for her unique architectural approach to the Hudson Yards location. Since moving to the new space, Sean Kelly continues to add internationally acclaimed artists to its roster, such as David Claerbout, José Dávila, Candida Höfer, Mariko Mori, and Sun Xun.
The Gallery's artists have consistently been included in major international exhibitions and recognized with esteemed awards across the globe. Several of the gallery's artists have represented their countries at the Venice Biennale, including Joseph Kosuth (Hungarian Pavilion, 1993), Julião Sarmento (Portuguese Pavilion, 1997), and Marina Abramović, who won the prestigious Golden Lyon Award for Sculpture in 1997. In 2008, Abramović was the recipient of the Austrian Decoration of Honour for Science and Art and in 2009, during the 8th Florence Biennale; she was presented with the Lorenzo il Magnifico award for Lifetime Achievement. Japan’s distinguished Praemium Imperiale Prize for Sculpture was awarded to both Rebecca Horn (2010), who, in 2011, was also the recipient of the Grande Médaille des Arts Plastiques, Académie d’Architecture de Paris, and Antony Gormley (2013). Most recently, José Dávila was selected as the winner of the 2014 EFG ArtNexus Latin America Art Award, Kehinde Wiley was presented with a 2015 U.S. Department of State Medal of Arts, Candida Höfer was awarded the 2015 Cologne Art Prize and in 2016 Anthony McCall was presented with The American Academy of Arts and Letters Award in Art, which honors exceptional accomplishments and encourages creative work.
