Fine Art Asia is recognised by the international art world as Asia’s leading fine art fair. On display are museum-quality art works spanning over 5,000 years of cultural history, from ancient Chinese bronzes through to contemporary art.

Since its inception in 2006, Fine Art Asia has attracted an increasing number of leading international galleries while earning worldwide recognition. Fine Art Asia is the only fair in Asia that showcases a wide range of collectible fine art from Asia and the West.

Min-Zheng Veneau will lead our tour visiting 5 galleries where the owners will talk in depth about their collections and offer their expertise and insights. You will have a chance to learn about Chinese imperial lacquer furniture, European silver, 18th century China export porcelain, antiquities from Greek & Roman and works of art from Japan. This is not only an opportunity to enjoy looking at the beautiful objects closely but also an adventure of intellectual stimulation through different time periods and geography.

A former member of the HKUMS Executive Committee, Min-Zheng Veneau worked with the eminent antique gallery, Mallett PLC, in London as their Asian representative, where she helped museums and collectors in China collect Western arts.  She successfully finished the Attingham Summer School, which offers specialised courses for those who are professionally engaged in historic houses, palaces and their collections. She is currently the ambassador for Attingham in China. She also attended the Royal Collection Studies, which studies the patronage and collecting of the Kings and Queens of England from the 15th century onwards. Min-Zheng has a Master’s Degree in International Business from Columbia University.
