Asia Art Archive Fundraiser 2011 Auction

Asia Art Archive (AAA), the region’s foremost public platform for research and dialogue, will hold its annual fundraising auction and dinner on 19 November 2011, with a preview of works at Sotheby’s Hong Kong from 14 to 18 November. The annual auction is a major source of support for AAA’s operations and public programmes, giving art collectors access to a range of significant works by 68 internationally recognised artists.

One of AAA’s priorities in the past few years has been working toward making its collection more accessible to the public. In 2010, AAA began work on a new website, which will launch in spring 2012 with the Collection Online. Funds raised this year will support this new digital platform, enabling global access for all to much of AAA’s extensive collection on contemporary art.

Auction highlights include an ink painting by Wu Guanzhong dated to the early 80’s, a TV installation by Nam June Paik, a work from the Flower series by Takashi Murakami, a photo-installation by Raqs Media Collective, a set of prints responding to the serial bomb in Bombay by Nalini Malani, a photo-installation by Gu Dexin, a print by Zeng Fanzhi, and a set of posters entitled Hong Kong Art Archive produced by Wong Wai Yin during her residency at AAA.

The dinner is sold out but all works will be on view at Sotheby’s Hong Kong from 14–18 November or online. AAA accepts absentee or phone bids.

About Asia Art Archive
Asia Art Archive is a non-profit organisation dedicated to documenting the recent history of contemporary art in Asia within an international context. Founded in 2000, AAA has compiled an extensive publicly accessible collection of materials, which continues to grow through a systematic programme of research and information gathering. AAA is committed to creating a collection that belongs to the public; currently accessible free of charge from AAA’s physical space and searchable via its online catalogue, much of the archive will be gradually accessible from anywhere in the world via the Collection Online in 2012. More than a static repository, AAA also presents public, educational, and residential programmes, instigating critical thinking and dialogue that generate new ideas and works that continually reshape the Archive itself.
