About the Asia Arts Awards

The Asia Arts Awards is a signature event honoring the Asia Arts Game Changers. Every year, major art collectors, artists, gallerists, dignitaries from the art world, and Asia Society trustees and patrons gather to celebrate contemporary art in Asia and honor artists and arts professionals for their significant contributions to contemporary art.

For more than twenty years, Asia Society has been a pioneer in identifying and fostering the latest contemporary Asian artists, and engaging new audiences for their work.

Past honorees include: Bharti Kher, Lee Ufan, Liu Guosong, Nyoman Masriadi, Takashi Murakami, Shahzia Sikander, Do Ho Suh, Wucius Wong, Xu Bing, Zeng Fanzhi, and Zhang Xiaogang.

All proceeds from the Asia Arts Awards support Asia Society initiatives worldwide.
