The Asia Week New York Association has announced that 27 international galleries and five auction houses —Bonhams, Christie’s, Heritage, iGavel, and Sotheby’s— will participate in the 2021 edition of Asia Week New York, a blend of by-appointment gallery exhibitions and online viewing rooms, as well as auctions which opens March 11 through 20, 2021.

Says Asia Week New York chairwoman Katherine Martin: “I am delighted that so many galleries have decided to participate in next year’s Asia Week New York, which will combine by-appointment gallery exhibitions with online viewing rooms on our new revamped website.” 

Ms. Martin adds that the Asia Week New York online platform has undergone significant changes to accommodate the new manner by which collectors view and acquire art. The platform has also expanded its audience engagement through virtual panel discussions that feature internationally renowned dealers, museum curators, collectors and auction experts. Via Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook, Asia Week New York's social media outreach has also been boosted markedly. 

Martin continues: “We want to support all our participating dealers and auction houses by engaging with the greater Asian art community throughout the year. “We'll be sharing information with them about exhibitions and collections coming to the market, and we'll be educating via videos that feature interviews and webinars. Having the leading Asian art experts in our family, we naturally have been and will continue to be the go-to resource for what’s happening in the field of Asian art.”
