WHAT - New York Tribal Art Week gallery exhibitions will showcase traditional African, Asian, Oceanic, American and Asian works of art of the highest quality, including rare masterpieces as well as more affordable items.

WHEN - May 9 to 15, 2011, coinciding with the Sotheby’s and Bonhams Tribal Art auctions.

WHY - Historically, New Yorkers have been among the foremost collectors of tribal art.

New York politicians, artists, business leaders, professionals, fashion moguls and celebrities such as Helena Rubinstein, Nelson Rockefeller, Andy Warhol, John Friedy and Robert Mapplethorpe have solidified the international tribal art market.

The goal of New York Tribal Art Week is to bring together those who share a common interest in the arts and to inspire a greater public knowledge of the cultural importance and artistic significance or non-western art forms.

Local and visiting collectors and aficionados, as well as anyone interested in tribal art or simply wanting to learn about this fascinating art form are invited to explore. There is no admission charge and everyone is welcome. This event will provide the opportunity to rediscover New York City’s galleries, which are among the best in the world, and will take place annually much like Asia Week.

A detailed map showing the location and contact number of each of the participants is available and can also be found on our website www.nyctribalartweek.com
