International Circle - Pacific Asia

The IC-Asia Pacific is the only acquisition committee in France dedicated to the enrichment of modern and contemporary collections through the works of artists coming from the Asia Pacific region.
Inaugurated in 2017, its members enjoy:
- Being involved in the selection process of artists along with the curatorial team, and to take part in strategic orientation
- Participating in a better understanding and a more authentic representation of the contemporary Asian scene for an international audience in Europe
- Meeting three times a year (in Hong Kong and in Europe*) between Friends to exchange ideas and collectively construct, almost from scratch, a well-conceived and relevant collection so as to best describe contemporary Asia

These advantages are designed in a hybrid way, they will be offered in physical or virtual format, depending on the context

*Conditional to the sanitary context
