Asia Art Archive is a Hong Kong based library and archive project collecting the recent history of art in Asia. On 24th March frieze deputy editor Amy Sherlock will be interviewing artist Zheng Bo as part of their public programme, 'Under the Influence' in which artists discuss the books that have shaped their practice. Ahead of this event we have invited AAA to curate a reading list:
