Hong Kong International Art Fair

It is now Art Basel Hong Kong

Art HK
ART HK, Hong Kong's Annual Art Fair held since 2008 was a relative newcomer to the international art calendar which quickly carved its niche amongst art enthusiasts, exhibitors, collectors, curators and galleries worldwide.

In less than 6 years, the Hong Kong International Art Fair firmly established itself as the premier art event in Asia, this is where you got to see the latest developments in art from across Asia as well as the best from the West.

In 2013, for the first time, ART HK is being replaced by the first Hong Kong edition of Art Basel, elevating this already high profile Asian event to the ranks of the most prestigious platforms in the art world.

ART HK has been held in collaboration with Art Basel since its inception in 2008. ART Hong Kong or rather Art Basel Hong Kong now, counts with some of the most influential and leading galleries from the Asia Pacific area and the world, attracted by the fact that after New York and London, Hong Kong is the third largest art market by auction turnover worldwide.

In 2013, some 250 galleries are expected to participate in four show sectors: Galleries, Insights, Discoveries, and Encounters.

For collectors, likewise, the Hong Kong Art Fair is equally appealing not only for the chance to see a wide range of works in many genres including paintings, photography, film and video, sculptures, and more, and the fact that they come from a large and diverse cultural and geographical sphere, but also because in Hong Kong there is no tax on the import and export of art.

Art Basel's presence in Hong Kong will likely generate many other concurrent exhibitions and events as in the past.

A highlight of the event has been ASIA ONE, where a number of galleries (forty-nine in 2012) from across Asia exhibit a solo presentation by an artist of Asian origin, a fantastic platform to showcase and appreciate the Asian art scene.

Another focal point worth following has been ART FUTURES, a section boasting exciting young galleries and the works of budding artists from around the world, with a winner selected by a panel of judges.
