Claire Hsu

Claire Hsu is co-founder and executive director of Asia Art Archive (AAA), an independent non-profit organization established in Hong Kong in 2000, which addresses the urgent need to document and make accessible the multiple recent histories of art in the region. AAA has collated one of the most valuable collections of material on contemporary art in the region — open to the public free of charge and increasingly accessible from its website. Hsu is co-editor of AAA’s e-journal, Field Notes, and she has participated as a speaker in a number of forums around the world. She sits on the general and acquisition committees of M+, the new museum for 20th and 21st century visual culture in Hong Kong, and on the board of the Foundation for Arts Initiatives. Hsu received an Asian Cultural Council Starr Foundation Fellowship in 2003, the RBS Coutts/Financial Times Women in Asia Award in 2009, and was selected as a 2013 Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum.
