Asia Week New York 2021 was a new departure from previous years. It was the culmination of a very unusual year filled with many changes and adaptations to a new and complicated environment. While we wish we had been able to welcome in person the out-of-town visitors we have in the past, we were happy to present a virtual exhibition.

Now spring has sprung in New York! Blossoms are blooming: cherry trees, daffodils, magnolias and mimosa greet us in shades of pink and yellow. The trees are in bud. It is the season of renewal and hope, and time to start planning for next year. With the continued vaccine rollout, there is a greater sense of what might be possible as the next few months pass. Stay tuned for news of upcoming events and ever-expanding opportunities to enjoy Asian art!
