Christina Prescott-Walker Named Chair of Asia Week New York

Christina Prescott-Walker has been named the new chair of Asia Week New York, a collaboration of more than four dozen international Asian art galleries, five major auction houses, and numerous museums and Asian cultural institutions.

“I am honored to assume the chairmanship of the Asia Week New York Association, the ten-day series of selling exhibitions and auction sales, held annually in March, which have become an essential destination for Asian art collectors, dealers, and museum curators from around the world,” said Prescott-Walker.

Currently the senior vice president, the division director of Asian Art, and the department director of Chinese Works of Art at Sotheby’s New York, Prescott-Walker first joined the auction house in 1989 as a cataloguer in its Sussex Ceramics and Oriental Works of Art department. She became an auctioneer in 1991.
