Asia Art Archive (AAA)'s Annual Fundraiser returns this October and November with an auction of over 65 works of art donated by artists, collecters and galleries across the globe.
AAA is an independent non-profit organisation initiated in 2000 in response to the urgent need to document and make accessible the multiple recent histories of art in the region. With one of the most valuable collections of material on art freely available from its website and onsite library, AAA builds tools and communities to collectively expand knowledge through research, residency, and educational programmes.

The Annual Fundraiser is an essential source of support for Asia Art Archive, as the funding empowers the independent non-profit's work on research and education about contemporary art in Asia. Recently, AAA launched a new website and digital infrastructure, which reaffirms the organisation’s ongoing commitment to ensuring that the collection of materials on contemporary art in Asia is easily accessible to all. They also presented a new editorial platform, Ideas, where content contributed by the team and respected members of the art community is published regularly.
