Asian Art in Brussels

ASIAN ART IN BRUSSELS is scheduled for June, 10-14, 2015

Leading dealers in the arts of India and the Himalayas, Central Asia, South East Asia, China, Japan, will offer the finest works of art on view and for sale. AAB is delighted to welcome three new exhibitors specialized in the field of Japanese painting and graphic arts.

As for the previous years a strictly organized vetting by a panel of international specialists and the compulsory ART LOSS REGISTER certification of all offered works of art will assure the collectors and the public of authenticity and provenance. Such high standard is quite unique and highly appreciated by the visitors.

AAB and BAAF fairs are proud to announce that the third edition of  "ArtConnoisseurs - a rendezvous with Art, Knowledge and Beauty" [1] will be organised in collaboration with the Royal Museums of Art and History. On Friday 12th of June, The Cinquantenaire Museum will host a series of lectures on Asian Art and Archeology held by the museum's specialists and by invited international scholars as well as private guided tours by the curators of the museum.

Exhibition: Fight Pray Love
The exhibition: Fight – Pray – Love will focus on Moghul and Sikh arms and armours from an important private European collection. A catalogue will be presented in conjunction with the exhibition and a lecture will be held by the well known specialist Robert Elgood.

The exhibition focus on the role of weaponry in acts of workship and rituals; its sacred role in the quotidian worlds and in religious ceremonies and the techniques; the design and decoration symbolism intervening in its manufacture, and on the wider role this material and metaphysical phenomenon has had to play.

The exhibition will be held in an exceptional “Art Nouveau” building from the Belgian architect Victor Horta (Hôtel Frison). We look forward to greeting visitors to ASIAN ART IN BRUSSELS from 10 to 14 June 2015.

1. A cultural event organised by Asian Art in Brussels (AAB) , Brussels Ancient Art Fair (BAAF), Brussels International Art Promotion and Logistics (BIAPAL) and the Institut Belge des Hautes Etudes Chinoises (IBHEC).
