Description was launched in 1997 as a non-profit web magazine ‘designed to provide collectors, historians, curators, dealers and critics outside China with an in-depth look at some of the art making history in China today’. The website featured information on exhibitions, artists and the art market in China, until it ceased running in 2003.

In 2007, Robert Bernell, the publisher and editor of the website, deposited his collection of material to the archive. This valuable collection includes more than 600 profiles of Asian art professionals, art organizations and events held in China and abroad, as well as audio interviews conducted by the magazine.

The Collection is accessible by the public in person at the AAA library. Please look into the inventory list for the details in the Collection.
