As of 2015, the number of the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum’s collection item has stood at over 2,800. These artworks collected in the past 17 years, after the opening of the museum to the present were acquired through our filed researches conducted all over Asia and various exhibitions organized as the result of the researches, the museum’s artists-in-residence programs, and a series of the “Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale” exhibitions, which introduces the latest trend of Asian art.

The book is the third edition of our collection catalogue, revising and enlarging upon the first edition “Asia Collection 50” published in 2000, which celebrated 50 pieces from about 1,200 museum collection items and the second edition “Asian Collection 70” published in 2007, featured 70 pieces selected from about 2,200 collection items. For the latest edition “Asian Collection 100” published for the first time in 8 years, 100 artworks were selected from 2,852 museum collection pieces, the current number of the items at the publication of this catalogue.

We hope “Asia Collection 100” and this exhibition give you a chance to enjoy the richness, the cross-border extent, and the diversified forms of Asian modern and contemporary art, which have been developed with the times and beyond the national boundaries.
