Asia Week at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour, in association with Asian Art in London, is a multi-dimensional exhibition that will run from 5 until 9 November 2018.

Attracting top designers, architects, international collectors, art-lovers and style-seekers, it will celebrate the influence of Asian culture, art and creativity from across the region.

The continent of Asia has long caught the imagination of the West. Featuring seven galleries showcasing the work of artists from China, Korea, Japan, The Philippines and Nepal, Asia Week at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour will explore the enduring appeal of the Asian aesthetic and why it resonates today. Artistic interpretations of the history, philosophy and culture of individual countries will offer a unique perspective to the work on show.

Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour’s famous architecture will provide a dazzling space for an impressive rollcall of emerging and established names. The selling exhibition will include work by South East Asian artists, represented by Singapore Art Garret Gallery (SAGG), such as Singaporean watercolourists Ng Woon Lam and Don Low, renowned glass sculptor Ramon Orlina from the Philippines and Indonesian painters Indra Dodi and Hari Gita. The October Gallery will showcase contemporary work by Nepalese artist Govinda Sah, Chinese artist Tian Wei and celebrated Japanese artist Kenji Yoshida. ArtChina, which represents Chinese printmakers and contemporary artists, will present a selection of Chinese artworks, prints and ceramics that combine traditional techniques with a modern aesthetic. From Korea will be pieces from The Han Collection. Work by contemporary Japanese artists will be represented by Kamal Bakhshi, and Genrokuart which will explore female beauty and the history of pre-modern Japan.

Visitors can also view the Hugentobler Collection of Modern Vietnamese Art, featuring paintings and drawings by two Vietnamese modernist masters, Bùi Xuân Phái and Nguy?n T? Nghiêm. Previously unseen in the UK, it belongs to a private collector who discovered Hanoi’s hidden art scene when he travelled to Vietnam in the early 1990s as the country was opening up. The work is not for sale but has come from its current home in Switzerland.

Generating a deeper understanding of design from both cultures is at the heart of the events programme, bringing a connection in an increasingly cosmopolitan world. From the Access All Areas showroom events to workshops, masterclasses and discovery tours, they will explore the crossover between East and West.

Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour, the world’s premier design centre, is renowned as an international hub for excellence in luxury interiors. With 120 showrooms and over 600 global names, it has long been a catalyst for creative connections. Supporting expression across the design agenda, it will present Asia Week at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour in a dynamic, experiential way.

Asia Week at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour is a participant in Asian Art in London, a globally recognised event that promotes Asian art across the capital.
