Launched in 1997, The Asian Art Newspaper keeps true to its goal to offer a snapshot of what’s happening in the world of Asian and Islamic art. Our world is truly international – East Asian, Southeast Asian, South Asian and Himalayan arts that you can read in coverage from Sydney to Shanghai and from New York to London.
News is important to us, as are the people who make the news. Each month there is an interview with an artist or expert. We cover all the major international exhibitions, auctions, fairs and events to keep you up to date. Other sections include the performing arts, film and literature to link the past with the future. Plus there is a dedicated page to the arts of the Islamic world: Islamic Arts Diary.
Each year we produce special guides in the newspaper that cover the main Asia weeks – New York, London, Hong Kong, Paris and Brussels that helps you discover where to go and what to see. We also have our eye on emerging markets and attend fairs around the world in the USA, Belgium, Canada, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Singapore, and the UK.
In December, we produce our annual good-book/good-read reviews of the year.
There is a wide range of features that cover a wide range of topics from exhibitions to books. We review major exhibitions around the world and take care to include the smaller but no less important ones – just in case you want to visit or get the catalogue. Auctions, and fairs are found at the back of the issue along with an international listings page.
Our website updates monthly and offers you articles from the current issue. We also have the archives, back issues, subscriptions and single issues online
