ADAA Collectors' Forum
Thursday, November 16, 2006 - 7:00pm
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 I: A Market Overview
Key curators and dealers provide insights into the burgeoning market for contemporary Chinese art. What should collectors know about this new art? How does one discover new artists? How does one master the cultural context, and is it necessary to travel to China to do so?
