The Rise and Rise of the Asia Art Archive

From the South China Morning Post: The Rise and Rise of the Asia Art Archive. “The Asia Art Archive of today is a lot more than just a few rows of bookshelves. Last year, it took a mobile library of art books around Myanmar and held talks and archiving workshops to a nation which was shut off from the rest of the world for so long. In India, it is compiling a bibliography of art writing from South Asia from the late 19th century to 1990 in 13 languages. It also has a fast-growing digital library, of which the personal archive of the late, local artist Ha Bik-chuen is its most ambitious project to date. “
