Being the fastest-growing contemporary art market in the World, Asian art market is expanding its borders by involving increasingly more countries from the region. In recent years Asia has brought out on the international art scene a number of talented young artists from China, South Korea, the Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam, India, Iran and many others. However, Asian art needs to be also represented in Europe, as a central point between Hong Kong and New York, and in this need will be realized in Poland. A series of exhibitions and related programs will be presented, featuring a broad spectrum of contemporary art, photography, performing arts — music, theatre, ballet and circus — from across Asia. Workshops, discussion panels, an academic conference on arts and a trading platform will also be held during the art week. The exhibition program of WACAW will focus on modern and contemporary Asian art, new media, visual arts and performing arts.

Culling together artistic and curatorial practices from across Asia, a continent of plural histories and multiple fictions, is no easy task. Especially when that continent has also spawned worldwide diasporas comprising multivalent, transnational artists continually crisscrossing spatial and temporal borders. The effectiveness of Asia Contemporary Art Week is that it continues to assert 'Asia' and 'Asian' as a loose conglomerate of relational strategies, rather than as fixed notions of place and identity. The final three weeks of the programme saw three further Open Studios events of diverse artists practicing across a spectrum of mediated environments; a politically charged exhibition of printed matter spotlighting the history of Anti-Asian racism in the United States; and a solo exhibition of tactile sculptures and works on paper by a critically-renowned artist from Cambodia.

Exhibitions this year reflect social, political, and economic upheaval, presenting the struggle of artists from across Asia and the United States to grapple with globalization and identity politics. Chiu was drafted in by the Asia Society to be the first ever curator of contemporary Asian and Asian-American art in the United States. The annual event has grown in scope and distinction every year since, promoting intercultural exchange between the United States and Asia across a dynamic, artful platform.
