THE 19TH EDITION OF ASIAN ART IN LONDON BRINGS STUNNING NEW WORKS TO LONDON:
Shortlisted for the ‘Business Award for Arts and Creative Services’ as organised by the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards this year, Asian Art in London will take place between 3rd and 12th November. The winner for the ‘Business Award’ will be announced later on 15th November.
There will be two major book launches during AAL this year, the first on Friday 6th November, at the London Library in St James’s, when Elizabeth Herridge launches her publication ‘Bringing Heaven to Earth, Silver Jewellery and Ornament in the late Qing Dynasty’, and the second on Thursday 10th November, at the Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace, with a celebration of the publication of ‘Chinese and Japanese Works of Art in the Collection of Her Majesty The Queen’, which examines over 2,000 works in the Royal Collection.
AAL will also continue its annual Symposium with ‘The Science of Art’. This will include a private view and talk on early and never previously shown photographs of Shanghai, from the Stephan Loewentheil collection. The Symposium will also reveal the revolutionary 3d printing techniques of antique works of art and architecture, to include Tutankhamen’s tomb, by Factum Arte of Madrid. A new hypothesis will also reveal startling finds by scientific researcher and Japanese expert Riccardo Montanari, during his lecture, ‘The origin of overglaze enamelling in Japan’. The AAL celebrity guest speaker for 2016 will be TV Presenter, Historian and Author Dan Cruickshank.
AAL keeps pace with the trend and provides exciting contemporary exhibitions on display at a number of selected galleries this year: Aktis, RaquelleAzran, Gregg Baker, Fitzgerald Fine Arts, Grosvenor Gallery, Hanga Ten, Jhaveri Contemporary, Mayor Gallery, Rossi & Rossi, Gallery Elena Shchukina, Richard Saltoun Gallery and by private appointment at Kamal Bakhshi.
