AAA was initiated in 2000 in response to the urgent need to document and secure the multiple recent histories of contemporary art in the region.
With an international Board of Directors, an Advisory Board made up of noted curators and critics, and research posts in China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea,
the Philippines, and Taiwan, AAA has collated one of the most valuable collections of material on contemporary art in the region.
Built of 85% donated material, the collection now holds over 34,000 records, comprised of hundreds of thousands of physical and digital items,
it continues to grow.
Accessible free of charge from AAA’s physical space and searchable from anywhere in the world via the online catalogue, much of the collection is now also
available globally via the Collection Online.
With the launch of the Collection Online, AAA is able to offer online access to the digital material in its collection. In addition to scanned images, correspondences, artists’ personal documents, and streaming audio and video of performance art, artist talks, lectures, and other art events, three Special Collections are currently available online, including ‘Materials of the Future: Documenting Contemporary Chinese Art From 1980-1990’; ‘The Chabet Archive’; and ‘Another Life: The Digitised Personal Archive of Geeta Kapur and Vivan Sundaram.’
Public Programs, research activities, Learning activities, and Funding are also important divisions of the project.
“HONG KONG ART MUSEUM“
The Hong Kong Museum of Art is one of the museums managed by the Leisure & Cultural Services Department. Established in 1962, it was first housed in the City Hall, moving to its present purpose-built premises by the Hong Kong Cultural Centre in 1991. The museum also has a branch, the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware, located in Hong Kong Park.
It is the mission of the Hong Kong Museum of Art to preserve the cultural heritage of China and promote art with a local focus. Its collections now number in excess of 15,800 art objects, including Chinese paintings and calligraphy works, antique Chinese treasures, paintings of historical significance as well as creations by local artists. The highlights of the collections are on display in the exhibition galleries. To maintain an essential international character, the museum also presents a great variety of thematic exhibitions drawn from local and overseas sources.
Promoting art among the general public is one of the museum’s main objectives, and a wide range of educational programmes are organized in support of the exhibitions to enhance participants’ knowledge of and interest in artistic creation.
