About the Asia Art Archive: The Asia Art

organization initiated in 2000 in response to the
urgent need to document and make accessible
the multiple recent histories of art in the region.
With one of the most valuable collections of
material on art freely available from its website
and onsite library, the AAA builds tools and
communities to collectively expand knowledge
through public, research, residency and
educational programmes.

historian and Senior Researcher at the Asia Art
Archive. With AAA, he has led various
