Asia Art Archive

Hosting one of the most valuable growing collections of material on the recent history of art from the region, Asia Art Archive seeks to act as a catalyst for new ideas that enrich visitors' understanding of the world through the collection, creation, and sharing of knowledge. Keepthinking designed and developed the new website, creating closer links between the collection and the stories around it, with the Qi CMS used for collection management, as well as web content management.

  • The homepage immediately outlines the variety of content on the site, with entry points to the collections and editorialised content through highlights and tags.

  • Curated highlights and an extensive, flexible search enable visitors to access the library and research collections in a variety of intuitive ways.
