Asia Week New York 2015

The opening reception of Asia Week New York (AWNY) on 16 March will be hosted by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, as the museum marks the centennial of its Department of Asian Art. The nine-day AWNY comprises gallery open houses, auctions, museum shows, lectures and special events. Carol Conover, AWNY president, says: ‘Our goal is to make New York a destination and I definitely think it will be this year’. She goes on to note: ‘The offerings from our 42 dealers are wide and deep, covering ancient to contemporary art from China, Japan, India and Korea. We have invited and expect many Asian art curators from all over the US and some from abroad to come to New York for the week to celebrate.’ Another highlight of the week is Christie’s sale of the Robert H. Ellsworth collection, which Conover comments, ‘will be a tremendous draw and is the largest Asian art auction ever held in New York.’ (For details of events and galleries, see
