ADAA Collectors' Forum

Monday, November 27, 6:30pm

In just a few decades, China has become the world’s fourth largest economy. And in the last two years, Chinese art has exploded on the contemporary scene. On two nights in November, top experts will provide a crash course on this exciting new market, where just about everyone—from museum professionals to major collectors—has encountered a rather steep learning curve. ADAA is pleased to co-host these two Collectors’ Forums with Asia Society and Museum, which mounted the first museum exhibition of Chinese contemporary art in the U.S. in 1998.

Part II: The Collector's Eye
Leading collectors discuss why they started collecting, what attracted them to Chinese contemporary art, and how they stay ahead of the curve in this increasingly popular field.
