Claire Hsu, Co-Founder and Director, Asia Art Archive Hong Kong.
“The most visible art historical narratives have been written from sites that have a long history of institutional support, be they museums, academies or university departments. This history of support does not exist in Asia, and therefore the recent art histories of the region remain relatively unknown or greatly simplified. By sharing their extensive collections of contemporary works, by taking risks, this group of collectors offer very different points of view to the more dominant frameworks one tends to encounter in the region – that of the market and within government museums. “
