Asian Art in London

Asian Art in London (AAL) is a globally recognized event that has, for the past 20 years, attracted top Asian art dealers, prime auction houses and leading museums and institutions.  Together they promote London as a centre of expertise for the finest Asian art from antique to contemporary.  

Asian Art in London takes place annually during the first ten days of November, although as an organisation it is active throughout the year via tours and its association with other art events, including Browns Hotel Art Weekends.

Asian Art in London is dedicated to promoting its participating dealers and auction houses via a series of selling exhibitions, auctions, symposia and lectures, all organised during the event itself.

Asian Art in London 2017 takes place from Thursday 2nd November – Saturday 11th November with a 20th Anniversary Celebratory Gala Party at the British Museum on Thursday 9th.

We look forward to welcoming you to our 20th Anniversary Celebration!

ART AWARD PRESENTATION

The Joseph E Hotung Gallery for China and South Asia
The British Museum will reopen the Joseph E Hotung Gallery for China and South Asia in November 2017. The new display will include a new narrative for China and South Asia which will bring the story up to the present day. The redisplay will allow the Museum to add new types of objects to the gallery such as paintings and textiles which need regulated conditions for display. These will complement the existing types of objects on show, such as sculpture, ceramics, lacquer, jade and metal ware. Updated interpretation, new lighting and design will allow this extraordinarily rich collection to be better seen and understood by the Museum’s seven million annual visitors.
