Asia Week: Galleries & Auctions Push Forward

Antiques & The Arts Weekly

It has been a year of learning and perseverance for Asia Week. The twice-annual main event of the Asian antique world saw its dominant edition open in March and immediately slam shut in New York City on account of COVID-19. It was followed by a July event where the organization of both dealers and auctioneers mounted an online showroom with programming to make up for that lost opportunity. That brings us to September, where Asia Week normally launches its second event of the year, typically a quieter though spirited presentation of the Asian arts, bringing together scholars, dealers, auctioneers, curators and collectors for another round of selling exhibitions and talks.
