Claire Hsu is Co-founder and Director of Asia Art Archive (AAA), a non-profit independent organisation dedicated to documenting and enabling research on the recent history of art in Asia within an international context. Comprised of 85% donated material, AAA is one of the world's leading public resources for contemporary art of the region. In addition to its freely accessible physical library and online collection, AAA was conceived as a proactive platform for instigating critical thinking, research and dialogue, bringing people together and connecting to other nodes within a larger network. AAA is committed to creating a collection belonging to the public, in a space that is open and productive, generating new ideas that continually reshape the Archive itself.
Claire has participated as a speaker in a number of forums around the world and is co-editor of AAA’s e-journal, Field Notes. She sits on the general and acquisition committees of M+ and on the board of The Foundation for Arts Initiatives (FfAI).
