ASIA NOW is Europe’s first boutique art fair devoted to contemporary Asian art. Founded by Claude Fain and Alexandra Fain, ASIA NOW aims to present the new perspectives and issues for contemporary Asian art and its market: the value of its artists, its potential for development and its rising stars.

As an ideal platform for dialogue and interaction dedicated to contemporary artistic creation, ASIA NOW addresses in greater depth the selected artistic scene through a curatorial platform and special projects.

Held during Paris Art Week, ASIA NOW will highlight the richness and dynamism of the young, emerging Japanese artistic scene this year. The fair will host the Japanese Platform curated by Emmanuelle de Montgazon, associate curator of “A Japanese Season” at the Centre Pompidou-Metz in 2017-2018.

The Japanese program will be organized as part of “Japonismes 2018,” a series of cultural events celebrating the 160th anniversary of Franco-Japanese relations.
