Call for material!

In order to better document the contemporary Asian art ecology in Australia where many Asian artists are residing, Multicultural Arts Victoria and Asia Art Archive (Hong Kong) are collaborating on a Call for Material from this region.

We are happy to receive publicationsexhibition cataloguesleaflets and brochures pertaining to activities of Asian art.

Items collected will be delivered to AAA on a regular time interval basis, and then be made available free-of-charge to the public at AAA’s facility in Hong Kong.

Through collecting and making information on the recent history of contemporary art in Asia easily accessible, AAA aims to facilitate understanding, research, and writing in the field, enrich existing global narratives, and re-imagine the role of the archive.

AAA’s collection is a dynamic, growing body of material intended to reflect contemporary artistic practice and developments of Asia within an international context.

Built of 85% donated material, the collection is a community effort that has grown from a few bookshelves in 2000 to the current platform with over 50,000 records of both physical and digital items.

Parties interested in donating material are invited to contact Multicultural Arts Victoria at or +61 3 9188 3681 with a description of their materials and to arrange a time to send the material to us. For enquiries about AAA please contact Kit-Long Lam at
