is delighted to announce the imminent launch of the 2013 edition.


Leading dealers in the arts of South and South East Asia, China, Japan and other Asian countries will offer the finest works of art on view and for sale from 5 to 9 June 2013. We are pleased to welcome first time exhibitors Nayef Homsi (USA) and John Siudmak (UK) and returning exhibitors Helena Markus (Italy) Karim Grusenmeyer (Belgium ) who will join the well-established group of dealers who were originally part of the Brussels Oriental Art Fair. We are particularly honored to welcome Mme Gisele Croes in our group.

ASIAN ART IN BRUSSELS aims to bring Asian art to the attention and appreciation of a wider audience and raise the profile of this field which is so rich and diverse.

ASIAN ART IN BRUSSELS will serve as a magnet for collectors and curators in these fields who can be confident of the quality and authenticity of the works offered by respected dealers. 

This year the fair will be fully vetted by an independent panel of experts in the various fields of Asian art. All objects on show will be screened by the Art Loss Register (UK).

ASIAN ART IN BRUSSELS will provide a platform for the promotion, exhibition, and sales of the arts of Asia, and will coincide with two other important cultural events - B.A.A.F. and B.R.U.N.E.A.F - making Brussels a key destination for art enthusiasts in June.

For the first time, an extensive cultural program, named ArtConnoisseurs, jointly organized by Asian Art in Brussels (AAB) and Brussels Ancient Art Fair (BAAF) and promoted by Brussels International Art Promotion and Logistics (BIAPAL) will offer a program of lectures by international specialists in Asian Art, Egyptian Art and Archaeologie. The lectures on Asian Art are co-organized with the Institut Belge des Hautes Etudes Chinoises (IBHEC) and will cover various fields of the Asian art and culture. Dr Pratapaditya Pal (USA), one of the world's most preeminent scholars of the arts of the Indian subcontinent, the Himalayas and South East Asia, will tell of his almost fifty years career as historian of Indian art, and of his experiences with american Museums and collectors . Prof. François Picard (France) will introduce his last book published by the IBHEC and speak about the role of the temple in the circulation of music in China . Max Rutherston (UK) will talk about the world of netsuke. David Pritzker (USA) will explore the royal aesthetic of the nomadic courts of Tibetan Kings (7th-9th centuries).

Dr Irka Hajdas from ETH Zurich will cover various aspects of radiocarbon dating (14C analysis ) showing the importance of carbon dating in corroborating scientifically the historical and stylistic proposed dating of objects.

The publication of the long-awaited study of the history of the Hindu-Buddhist sculpture of Kashmir by Dr. John Siudmak will be announced during the lectures on Asian Art and an advance copy of the book will be available from Brill, the publishers. The work is an important study of the stone sculpture of Kashmir dating from its earliest origins in the fourth/fifth century through the early eleventh century, and includes artworks in other media. It is the first major study devoted to the subject since the 1975 publication of The Bronzes of Kashmir by Dr Pratapaditya Pal, a seminal work in this field.
