The second annual Asian Contemporary Art Fair is happening this weekend at Pier 92, with galleries from New York, China, Japan, Vietnam, Korea, India, Philippines and Singapore participating. This year’s fair is notable for its extended reach. As Executive Director Cristal Kim points out, ACAF has “diversified the scope of the fair to include artists from the Middle East and Central Asia.” NYAB attended the opening night preview and took a few photos among the overwhelming amount of artwork on display.
