ASIA NOW continues once more to explore and immerse itself into the contemporary Asian art scene with a varied selection of established and emerging artists represented at this year’s edition. Now in its fourth year, ASIA NOW will take place from October 17 to 21, and welcomes over 40 Asian and Western galleries committed to promoting and supporting contemporary Asian artists internationally.  


Reflecting the diversity and dynamism of the Asian art world, ASIA NOW presents galleries from over 10 countries within the region, from Japan to Thailand to China, offering a key insight into the region’s arts scene, how the market has developed and is likely to over the coming years.




This year, ASIA NOW turns its attention to the Japanese artistic scene with a Japanese Platform that will be housed in a dedicated exhibition space and with a special programme curated by Emmanuelle de Montgazon. The scenography of the Japanese Platform will be designed by one of the most influential contemporary Japanese architects, Sou Fujimoto Architects. Committed to discovering new talents, ASIA NOW will present a cutting-edge selection of contemporary Japanese artists, whose work has never before been shown in Europe.


ASIA NOW continues on its mission to act as a platform for discovery and this year offers an expanded selection of Special Projects to collectors and visitors. Emmanuelle de Montgazon, Associate Curator of “A Japanese Season” at the Centre Pompidou-Metz in 2017/2018 explained, “For the Japanese Platform of ASIA NOW 2018, I selected projects which would provide the keys to understanding the scene over the last twenty years, a scene which I saw evolve under renewed cultural, artistic, and political influences. I also wanted to establish a link between the current emerging scene, which has its own codes, and more historical and wellknown periods, from the end of World War II to the year 2000.”


Although Japan is at the forefront of ASIA NOW 2018, this edition will also feature strong contingents of Chinese and Filipino galleries, as well as the return of Korean galleries, following a third edition dedicated to Korean creation.




The participation of Chinese galleries is particularly notable this year, with a selection of over ten galleries, including several market leaders. The breadth of contemporary Chinese creation is amply represented by a multitude of group shows and leading artists
