Asian Art in London presents a selection of informal Chats With Specialists, offering our audience personal insights into the lives of our participants.
Each presents a selected object that is isolating with them. We discuss the art market, gallery endeavours and, of course, Covid-19’s impact on businesses in the U.K.
To coincide with Asian Art in London 2020 we presented a digital schedule of lectures, tours and special talks. Released throughout the event, the videos were uploaded directly onto our website and are available to stream internationally post-event.
Since it was not possible in 2020 to host the normal ceremony for our Sponsors’ Award for Outstanding Works of Art, presented by Antiques Trade Gazette and Apollo Magazine, Asian Art in London hosted a virtual ceremony. 2020 also marked the debut for our Indian & Islamic Art Focus, for which we were delighted to present corresponding awards – one for an auction house, one for a dealer – and likewise for East Asian Art.
A range of Asian Art in London participants have items on show, and the whole is curated to bring together the rich mix of cultures and media that Asian Art in London represents. The Virtual Gallery will be regularly updated and extended, and all enquiries about the pieces on show are welcome. We hope you enjoy working with this new feature.
