Art HK 12 on May 17-20
Art HK – the Hong Kong International Art Fair – is back for the fifth time and scheduled for May 17-20 with the vernissage on May 16 at the HK Convention Center. It will present 266 galleries from 38 countries, including 80 new participating galleries.
Since art Basel took a 60% shareholding in the artfair, it will be interesting to see if they put some influence on it except the gallery selection.
ASIA ONE and ART FUTURES are separate shows apart from the ART HK Galleries Selection. Asia One will show solo presentations by an artist of Asian origin and Art Futures looks to strenghten from some of the best up and coming artists from around the world. Here 35 young galleries showcasing work by emerging artists.
