2019 Art Exhibitions

by Hannah Lockett | January 31, 2019

UK Wide Art Exhibitions

Calling all art lovers who appreciate the work from Southeast Asia and the Far East!

We have gathered together a handy selection the exhibitions featuring the art and artists from China, Japan, Indochina, Sri Lanka, South Korea and Taiwan, that are showing around the country during 2019. We hope you find the list helpful in planning days out, and weekends away throughout the year.

We will be updating the list as and when any new art exhibitions are announced, and if you know of any local to you that aren’t listed and think should be, then please get in touch by sending an email to:
