13th Annual International Asian Art Fair To Move
View of the 2007 Fair.

NEW YORK.-Anna and Brian Haughton, Directors of Haughton International Fairs, have announced that the 13th annual International Asian Art Fair will move in 2008 to 583 Park Avenue and will now lead Asia Week in New York by taking place from March 15-19, 2008.

The fair was previously scheduled for March 28-31 at the Park Avenue Armory but has been rescheduled to coincide with the New York Asian art auctions and to avoid the Easter holiday (March 21-24). “The 2008 spring calendar was difficult to navigate because of the unusually early Easter holiday and the early April Asian art auctions in Hong Kong” commented Brian Haughton, adding: “We felt it important to coincide with the auctions and the only other option was holding the fair over Easter weekend. This was problematic for our exhibitors and their clients as it is widely considered to be a family holiday. We are delighted to have been approached by 583 Park Avenue – just two blocks south of the Armory – which is a splendid landmark New York building, befitting an international art event of this caliber.”

Built in 1924, 583 Park Avenue, on the Northeast corner of 63rd Street, was designed by William Adams Delano and Chester Holmes Aldrich, also the architects of the nearby Colony and Knickerbocker Clubs. 583 Park Avenue has been newly renovated and has now become “the” society event venue on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The International Asian Art Fair will have the distinction of being the first art and antique fair to take place in the building since its conversion. The building retains its 50-foot-high ceilings and original light fixtures, including the 2,500-pound chandelier in its Grand Ballroom. With its very tall lantern top, handsome proportions, arched windows, columns, pediments and dome, this red-brick, Georgian-style building is one of the great architectural masterpieces of Park Avenue.

The International Asian Art Fair will retain it trademark elegance but will be modified slightly in size and design to accommodate a new floor plan at 583 Park Avenue. This will utilize all three floors of the building. The Gala Preview to benefit Asia Society for the 13th consecutive year will take place Friday evening, March 14, from 6-9 p.m. at the Fair.

Founded in 1996, The International Asian Art 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.

The quality of the material on offer at The International Asian Art Fair is always exceptional, its importance underlined by the strict vetting procedures that are a signature of all Haughton fairs. There are various vetting committees, which include leading independent specialists and museum curators, who carefully examine each and every item on view for authenticity, whether priced at a few thousand or several million dollars. A buyer can therefore feel comfortable in the knowledge that everything possible has been done to confirm the validity of their purchase.

The International Asian Art Fair is open from 11 am to 7.30 pm (Saturday, Monday and Tuesday); 2pm to 7.30pm on Sunday and 11am to 4.30pm the last day. Admission is $20 and tickets can be purchased at the door.
