One of the most important exhibitions of contemporary Asian art, the 2nd annual Asian Contemporary Art Fair New York (ACAF NY), will be held from November 6-10, 2008, at Pier 92, 52nd Street and 12th Avenue, in New York City. An opening night preview will be held on the evening of November 6. More than 60 international galleries and non-profit organizations will show a wide range of contemporary work by artists from countries including China, Japan, Korea, India, Bangladesh, Philippines, Singapore and Vietnam. Much of the work, including paintings, sculpture, photography, works on paper, video, and installations, will be on view for the first time in the U.S.

The Asian Contemporary Art Fair New York is the only international art fair in New York dedicated exclusively to Asian contemporary art. Last year’s inaugural fair was hailed as a major success, providing collectors with an unusual opportunity to gain an overview of Asian art and see work by emerging artists, as well as internationally-recognized names such as Zhang Xiaogang, Nam June Paik, Yue Minjun and Yayoi Kusama.
