Stunning exhibitions, lectures and events for art aficionados

With a selection of versatile art spaces in the building, Asia House hosts some of the most exciting names from the Asian art world. We open our doors regularly to a range of international exhibitions from Asia and the Asian diaspora. These are both created in-house by our experienced curatorial team and brought in by external art consultants and curators.

In 2016 we held an Asia House Benefit Auction. which took place online on Paddle8 here starting on Tuesday 8 June, culminating in a white-gold themed dinner and live auction on 21 June, to raise money for our arts and cultural programme.

The auction showcased art donated by artists and galleries from across Asia, many of which have exhibited at Asia House in the past. To read more about the auction click here.

Artists are at the centre of our programme. We work across all mediums and provide a platform for both established and emerging artists. In so doing, we reflect the diverse visual arts emerging out of Asia and those that are inspired by the region.

We present traditional and contemporary art forms that include painting, sculpture, photography installations, video, sound and digital art. Our exhibitions are diverse and dynamic – there’s something for everyone. Artists, art aficionados and general interested parties all come together to celebrate and engage with traditional and new art forms.

In addition to all of this, we also arrange special guided tours for schools and community groups – this is a fun way to learn, create and enjoy. We host regular talks, workshops and activities as well, such as ARTiculations, a series of In-Conversations featuring some of the most interesting names from the art world. This, in addition to lectures on contemporary arts, the art market and education, engage audiences with creative practitioners on a regular basis.
