为庆祝每年春天吸引全纽约国际博物馆策展人和收藏家纷至沓来的为期十日的亚洲艺术盛会，纽约亚洲艺术周协会很荣幸地宣布，一年一度的仅凭邀请函入场的招待会将于 2016 年 3 月 14 日在纽约大都会博物馆举行。
“We are delighted to co-host our reception with the Department of Asian Art of the Met,” says Lark Mason, chairman of 纽约亚洲艺术周. “There isn’t a grander setting in which to celebrate our seventh year.”
Maxwell K. Hearn, Douglas Dillon Chairman of the Metropolitan’s Department of Asian Art, commented: “We're delighted to welcome the Asian art community to the Met as part of the exciting events of Asia Week. We feel a special debt of gratitude to this community as it has long been our greatest source of encouragement and support. That support is more important than ever as we endeavor to present not only Asia's diverse cultural past, but also its burgeoning future. We welcome everyone to discover all of Asia at the Met!"
According to Mr. Mason, one of the main highlights of the evening is that the Metropolitan Museum opens all of its Asian art galleries for viewing so that guests can avail themselves of special curatorial tours of the ten exhibitions on view now. They include: 猴事： Celebrating the Year of the Monkey; Encountering Vishnu: The Lion Avatar in Indian Temple Drama; The Arts of Nepal and Tibet: Recent Gifts; Masterpieces of Chinese Painting from the Metropolitan Collection; Celebrating the Arts of Japan: The Mary Griggs Burke Collection; Asian Art at 100: A History in Photographs; Chinese Textiles: Ten Centuries of Masterpieces from the Met Collection; Chinese Lacquer: Treasures from the Irving Collection, 12th-18th Century; A Passion for Jade: The Heber Bishop Collection; and Korea: 100 Years of Collecting at the Met.
This year, many of the 纽约亚洲艺术周 dealers will launch their exhibitions a day early on Thursday evening, March 10. The exhibitions will open to the public the next day and throughout the designated Open House Weekend, and continue through March 19.
45 top-tier international Asian art specialists, five major auction houses, and 16 museums and Asian cultural institutions unite for a ten-day celebration of simultaneous gallery open houses, and Asian art auctions at 邦瀚斯, Christie’s, Doyle, 爱嘉福, and Sotheby’s, as well as numerous museum exhibitions, lectures, and special events.
Participants from Belgium, England, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Switzerland, and the United States unveil an extraordinary array of treasures from China, India, Southeast Asia, Tibet, Nepal, Japan, and Korea.

Founded on April 13, 1870, 大都会艺术博物馆 is a living encyclopedia of world art. Every culture from every part of the world—from Florence to Thebes to Papua New Guinea—from the earliest times to the present and in every medium is represented, frequently at the highest levels of quality and invention. The Museum’s more than two million square feet house what is in fact a collection of collections; several of its departments could be major independent museums almost anywhere else, including the Department of Asian Art, whose collection is one of the largest and most comprehensive in the West. As impressive as its collections is the Museum’s diverse audience, which last year numbered over 6 million visitors.
