ASIA NOW’s inaugural art show will take place at the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris from October 9th to the 14th, 2014. Its ambition is to allow top collectors, key leaders and art lovers to discover and appreciate the finest curation of contemporary Asian artworks within a prestigious and unique venue in Paris.
The ultimate goal is to present the best of Asian contemporary creation while maintaining a keen interest on its evolution and future development. ASIA NOW is the first to bring this dream to Paris.
ASIA NOW will showcase the finest selection of artists from 13 countries (China, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Cambodia, Vietnam, Burma, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, India) represented by exclusive Asian and International galleries bringing artwork from their brightest upcoming and established talents to the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris.
Widely acknowledged throughout the world as the historic capital of arts and culture, Paris has always been an endless source of inspiration for artists and their patrons, as well as a natural second home for Asian artists who set up their studios in this vibrant art scene. At the heart of the city lies one of its most striking landmarks: the Musée du Louvre with its iconic pyramid designed by world-famous Chinese-born architect I.M. Pei in 1989. In front of it, acting as a skylight in the Carrousel du Louvre unique shopping mall, the inverted pyramid epitomizes the point where tradition meets modernity, embodying the highest demand for beauty and quality.
Within this inspiring frame, French Curator Ami Barak, ASIA NOW’s Artistic Director creates a unique panel of the best galleries in the world concentrating on the Asian, South Asian and Indian artists.
