Asian Art in London, 31 October – 9 November 2013

Asian Art in London has, in the course of the past 16 years, become one of the most prestigious and talked about events in the international art calendar. In 2013 Asian Art in London brings together 60 leading Asian art dealers, and major auction houses and offers visitors the opportunity to buy examples of some of the finest Asian works of art available on the market. These include art works from the Near East to Far East via the Indian sub-continent and Southeast Asia, ranging in date from antiquity to contemporary.

Large numbers of overseas visitors come to London during this 10-day period, attracted by the opportunity to buy outstanding Asian art works. There are selling exhibitions, and major auctions, exclusive evening receptions and a Gala Party at the Victoria and Albert Museum to attract and entertain. Whether newcomers to Asian Art in London, or established connoisseurs, visitors will find the many participating Asian art dealers conveniently located at galleries in Mayfair, St. James’s and Kensington. Close by are the auction houses whose most important Asian sales are timed to coincide with Asian Art in London.

At the same time some of London's leading museums and academic institutions lend their support with events timed to coincide with this ten-day celebration of the best of Asian art. There are lectures, courses and exhibitions most of which are provided free of charge to visitors.

A highlight of the ten-day event is the Asian Art in London Gala Party, an enormously popular gathering point for participants, collectors and enthusiasts in general. Tickets, at £60 each, are available from early September.
