Art Agenda, S.E.A. (AASEA) is an art advisory that specialises in post-war and modern Asian art from the 1930s to the 1980s. AASEA was founded in 2016 by Wang Zineng and is directed by Jefferson Jong in Singapore. Diana Wibawa directs our affiliate art gallery in Jakarta, Art Agenda, JKT (AAJKT), which just opened in July 2020.

Under our advisory and curatorial arms, we provide personalised services that accommodate to the needs of both private and corporate clients. Complementing our projects is our online art news portal, Art & Market, which takes an incisive look at the business of art in Asia.

AASEA presents an agile organisational structure for today’s complex art market. Adapting to an increasingly globalised world, we continue to forge partnerships with auction houses, galleries and dealers to expand our scope of work. We handle the best of East and Southeast Asian art while privileging their investment value and art historical significance.

The Team

One of the key market makers for Southeast Asian art, Wang Zineng led the curation and sale of Southeast Asian art at Christie’s from 2011 to 2016 before founding Art Agenda, S.E.A.. During his time at Christie's, Zineng established numerous record prices for Southeast Asian artists and the largest ever auction sale total for Southeast Asian art in 2015. He also expanded the geographical footprint of modern and contemporary Southeast Asian art at auction beyond Singapore and Hong Kong to salerooms in New York and Shanghai, and was the principal driver behind private sales of Southeast Asian art at Christie’s. Zineng previously worked as an independent curator and managed collections acquisition at the National Gallery, Singapore. He has also curated exhibitions of modern and contemporary Southeast Asian artists at the Singapore Art Museum and the National University of Singapore (NUS) Museum.

Born in Indonesia and based in Singapore, Jefferson is in a strategic position of being able to navigate these two significant art hubs in Southeast Asia. Graduated with a masters degree in architecture, his interests are however not limited to just the built environment. Jefferson previously interned at Christie's Singapore, Sundaram Tagore Gallery, FARM Architects and Ong&Ong. He also independently manages projects in curation, interior design and graphic design with clients based in Europe and Asia. Jefferson aspires to utilise his multi-disciplinary background to promote the appreciation of Southeast Asian art within the region and beyond.

In his previous role as Indonesian Liaison and Design Lead, Jefferson plays an important role in placing significant Southeast Asian artworks in important collections, cultivated relationships with various stakeholders in Asia and managed all aspects of visual, communication, spatial design for AASEA. Jefferson will take an expanded role as Director and will actively lead all aspects of AASEA’s advisory, curatorial and design work.
