Asia Week 2017 at Asia Society Museum
Asia Week New York, March 9-18, 2017, is a collaboration among museums, galleries, auction houses, Asian art specialists, and enthusiasts hosting exhibitions, previews, and special programs throughout the city, attracting visitors from around the world.
Internationally-recognized artist *Lee Ufan* joins *Michelle Yun*, Asia Society Museum Senior Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, in conversation about his recent work. The artist will discuss his sculptural works in clay, created during a residency at the esteemed porcelain company Manufacture de Sèvres, and how this medium has allowed the artist to continue his explorations of space, time, and materiality.
Over the past decade, regulations related to art acquisition and transport across borders have become increasingly complex. Join *Adriana Proser*, John H. Foster senior curator for traditional Asian art; *Clare McGowan*, senior registrar and collections manager at Asia Society; and *Sharon Flescher*, executive director of the International Foundation for Art Research (IFAR), as they discuss steps that can be taken to become an educated art consumer in today’s world. The program will include a presentation by Dr. Flescher on new IFAR resources that help collectors research provenance and navigate the increasingly complex and abundant body of legislation and case law regarding the acquisition and ownership of artworks.
