NEW YORK and LONDON.- Now in its twelfth year, The Haughton International Asian Art Fair, has, since its launch, been widely lauded as the world's leading Asian art fair and the centrepiece of New York's annual Asia Week.

Founded in 1996, the fair has consistently brought together a large group of the world's leading dealers in Near Eastern, Indian, Himalayan, Tibetan, South East Asian and Far Eastern works of art. It attracts institutional and private buyers from the United States, Europe and the Far East, presenting them with the opportunity to view and buy from among the rarest and most important Asian art on the market, from the earliest pieces through to contemporary.

Inevitably, there have been changes to the fair that have come with the seismic shift in the landscape of the Asian Art market and the phenomenal rise of interest in and demand for contemporary works to the very forefront of it. The organisers have addressed these changes with a view to keep the fair moving forward and keep it vibrant. Most recently, a number of familiar faces have moved on - although supporters of the fair for a number of years - some because they are approaching retirement and making changes in their businesses and some for other reasons. These include the increasing scarcity of traditional material, the huge prices (beyond the reach of most western dealers) being paid by enormously wealthy mainland Chinese buyers for Chinese works of art and the complexities now surrounding the whole issue of provenance. This has left space for newcomers to come through, most notably in the contemporary arena. The excitement generated by the contemporary Asian Art explosion has brought many enthusiastic, new young buyers into the market, as was particularly evident at the 2006 Asian Art Fair when contemporary Chinese and Indian art were among the major successes. The 2007 fair builds on that impressive performance, with a noticeable increase in the representation of contemporary material.

The 2006 International Asian Art Fair, introduced the arts of Africa, Oceania and the Americas into the complex mix of categories on offer. In 2007 there are once again a select group of dealers specialising in various of these areas. This new material has extended the range of the fair beyond the items traditionally associated with it, while complementing it and illustrating the natural compatibility of many of these art works.

The quality of the material on offer at The International Asian Art Fair is among the finest, its importance underlined by the strict vetting procedures that are a signature of all Haughton fairs. Many events may claim to be vetted but vetting standards at Haughton Fairs are among the highest and we do our outmost to maintain those standards from year to year. The various honorary vetting committees include leading independent specialists and museum curators. They examine each and every item on view for quality and authenticity, whether priced at a few thousand or few million dollars. It is essential that buyers feel confident that everything possible has been done to confirm the validity of their purchases.
