ACAF NY will be New York's first Asian Contemporary Art Fair.
ACAF debuts November 8-12, 2007 at Pier 92 with new works by a front line of contemporary masters and a fascinating selection of work in varied media by emerging artists who are setting tomorrow's trends. ACAF brings to New York a vibrant, international art market, attractive to experienced collectors but accessible to those new to contemporary Asian art. ACAF will arrange special opportunities for dialogue and learning, and will become a point of convergence where some of the most respected dealers of contemporary Asian art will engage collectors and the general public.
A prime objective of ACAF NY will be to enrich knowledge and enhance familiarity with contemporary Asian art. To that end, a guest-curated exhibition will feature works that highlight salient issues and significant trends. A series of lectures led by renowned curators, dealers, and scholars will add perspective to appreciating and collecting contemporary Asian art and will cultivate a scholarly forum on current topics.
ACAF NY will open with a gala event and preview prior to the public opening at Pier 92 in Manhattan.
