Museums and the art trade get together for Asia Week New York


In its 15th year, what sets Asia Week New York (AWNY) apart from other similar events that dot the international calendar? For its new chairman, Brendan Lynch of the London-based gallery Oliver Forge and Brendan Lynch Ltd, it’s the fact that year after year AWNY attracts curators from major museums in the United States and from overseas. ‘Also, it’s that you can buy very decent works of art for under $50,000,’ he adds. ‘Quite frankly, Asian art is largely inexpensive compared to many other areas of the art market.’
