LONDON.- Since its inception in 1998, Asian Art in London has become one of the world’s most important focal points for international collectors of Asian art, with its series of specialist gallery exhibitions and events hosted by leading UK dealers and auction houses. In a new move that further enhances its global appeal, Asian Art in London has for the first time invited overseas specialist dealers to join its ranks for the 2011 event, to be held from 3rd to 12th November.

International dealers taking part in Asian Art in London for the first time are: Art of the Past from New York; Alexis Renard and Christophe Hioco both from Paris; Carlo Cristi from Italy; Carlos Cruañas from Barcelona. From the Netherlands dealers welcomed are Dries Blitz, Michael Meijering Art Books and Vanderven & Vanderven Oriental Art. All international dealers will be taking gallery spaces in central London.

Also new to the event this year and adding a further dimension to the ever-expanding group of participants are several London-based dealers. Modern and contemporary Indian art can be found at Grosvenor Gallery, St. James’s; an exciting Chinese performance art piece will be taking place at Hua Gallery’s Battersea riverside location and Mica Gallery in Sloane Square will show modern Pakistani works.

Recently opened Japanese specialist Rutherston Bandini will present, as part of their exhibition, a delightful ivory netsuke of a Kinko on a carp, c.1780 from the Sheila M. Baker collection. Exquisite oriental carpets and textiles can be found at Zadah Gallery, Marylebone. This brings the total number of participants to 51 expanding the event by over 20% on previous years. A full list of all the participants, their exhibitions and specialities can be found below.

Asian Art in London’s sponsors this year are AFEX (Associated Foreign Exchange Brokers) and Apollo Magazine. The Antiques Trade Gazette also continues its invaluable support of the Asian Art in London Art Award for two- and three-dimensional works of art. The award is judged by an international group of experts, including Sir Michael Butler and the Victoria and Albert Museum’s Indian specialist Rosemary Crill, together with Dr Claire Pollard from the Ashmolean Museum and Dr Wang Tao, Senior Lecturer in Chinese Archaeology at SOAS.

The Asian Art in London Gala Party, to be held on the 8th November at the Victoria and Albert Museum, promises to be a spectacular event. The star prize for a lucky guest will be a fantastic free trip to The St. Regis Bangkok hotel sponsored by the St. Regis Group.

Visitors who come to London during the week have the opportunity to view some of the best Asian art in the world, from Imperial porcelain to contemporary, in gallery selling exhibitions and auctions, together with lectures and symposia by London’s major museums.

Asian Art in London, now in its 14th year, has an established reputation as one of the most important Asian art events on the international art calendar.
