Editors’ Picks: 7 Events for Your Virtual Art Calendar This Week, From an Online Tony Cokes Premiere to Asia Week New York’s Summer Redux

Artnet News

Asia Week New York had the extreme misfortune of opening March 12, with most of the galleries that were able to participate opting to wind down operations by the weekend, days ahead of the planned March 19 end date. To make up for the interrupted event, Asia Week galleries are banding together for “SUMMER REDUX: Asia Week New York 2020,” a virtual exhibition running through July 31 that coincides with online Asian art auctions at Bonhams, Christie’s, Doyle, Heritage Auctions, iGavel, and Sotheby’s. Programming includes a talk from the curators of three major Asian art shows that were also forced to shutter this spring: “Chinese Painting and Calligraphy Up Close” at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, “The Cloth That Changed the World: India’s Painted and Printed Cottons” at Toronto’s Royal Ontario Museum, and “Lost Luxuries: Ancient Chinese Gold” at Vermont’s Middlebury College Museum.
