Marking its twentieth anniversary, Asia Art Archive (AAA) will offer over thirty works, generously donated by artists, collectors, and galleries, at the 2020 AAA Annual Fundraiser auction.
The fundraiser is an essential source of funding for the independent non-profit in building collections on the history of contemporary art in Asia, as well as keeping the materials free and accessible for research and education. All proceeds from the fundraiser will go directly towards supporting the work of AAA.
Continuing the long-standing partnership with Christie’s, a preview of the artworks will be exhibited at Christie’s Hong Kong from 13–16 October, with a live auction taking place on 30 October. The artworks will be available for bidding online at www.aaa2020auction.com from 13–30 October.

Since 2000, AAA has played a pivotal role in enabling the history of modern and contemporary art from Asia to be studied, written, and shared globally. AAA remains dedicated to making less-visible histories accessible through one of the most important collections on contemporary art, as well as through hundreds of public programmes and publications, freely accessible from our website and onsite library.
In 2020-21, new collections include the archives of India-based artist Nilima Sheikh, the female art-practitioner-centred Womanifesto event in Thailand and Manila’s Green Papaya Art Projects. These will be presented alongside a series of public programmes that pay tribute to artist-teachers and schools that have shaped contemporary practice in the region.
This year’s Annual Fundraiser is supported by sponsors Altaya Group, Christie’s Hong Kong, Chubb, Jebsen & Co Ltd., Willis Towers Watson, and media partners, ArtAsiaPacific, ArtReview, the Artling, CoBo Social, Design Anthology, Tatler Hong Kong, and Ocula.
This year’s auction features work by artists including Irene Chou, Ding Yi, Yayoi Kusama, Lee Bul, Eddie Martinez, Wilson Shieh, Shen Yuan and Huang Yong Ping, Zhang Huan and more.
