Asia Week New York, the 10-day annual Asian art event, concluded with $130 million in total sales.
From March 10 through March 19, 45 well-known galleries invited local and international collectors, curators and Asian art specialists into their spaces. Buyers from Mainland China, Taiwan, India, Japan, Korea, Europe and the U.S. were present to view the latest Asian art collections.
Exhibited works dated back to the 18th century, including ceramics, paintings, contemporary Japanese photography, textiles, metalwork and decorative art pieces. Major participating auction houses including Christie's, Doyle, Bonhams and Sotheby's experienced an impressively strong and consistent record of sales throughout the 10 days.
