NEW YORK CITY — Margaret Tao has been named executive director of Asia Week New York. Said Lark Mason, chairman of Asia Week New York 2016, in making the announcement, “We are delighted that Margaret is our new executive director of Asia Week New York. Her extensive knowledge of the Asian art market will certainly enhance our visibility and broaden our reach to new collectors.” According to Mason, Noémie Bonnet, who previously held the position, is stepping down in order to pursue various projects, but will continue working with the association as its technology consultant.
