Artstor and the Asia Art Archive (AAA) are now sharing approximately 9,900 images of contemporary Asian art in the Digital Library. The AAA’s extensive collection of material includes contemporary artists in several Asian countries, including China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, India, and Pakistan, as well as artists of Asian descent active worldwide and artists of non-Asian descent living in Asia. Selections from the portfolios of individual artists will be included, materials from personal archives donated by artists, art historians, and critics, as well as documentation of contemporary art installations and art events (exhibitions, biennials, triennials, etc.) from across Asia.
Based in Hong Kong, Asia Art Archive is a non-profit organization and registered charity dedicated to the documentation of the recent history of visual art from Asia within an international context. Initiated in 2000, AAA’s mission is to collect, preserve, and make information on contemporary Asian art easily accessible in order to facilitate understanding, research and writing in the field. Over the course of ten short years of collecting and documenting, AAA has amassed the world’s most comprehensive collection of primary and secondary source material on contemporary Asian art in the field.
