To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Asia House is holding its first ever Benefit Auction to raise funds for its ongoing programme of arts and cultural events. The 25 plus lots that will go into the auction have been generously donated by artists and galleries from across Asia, as well as those who have strong links with the region. Many of the artworks have been donated by artists who have exhibited at Asia House in the recent past.

Artworks will be on display around Asia House in London from Tuesday 14 until Tuesday 21 June giving bidders a chance to preview the work on sale. This is a drinks reception to launch the preview exhibition. Complimentary wine, soft drinks and nibbles will be served.
