Following a breakthrough 2015 edition – which placed the Art Basel Hong Kong show squarely in the center of Asia’s international art scene – the upcoming show offers a premier platform for showing works from across the globe, more than half from Asia and Asia Pacific. The show provides an in-depth overview of the region’s diversity through both historical material and cutting-edge works by leading and emerging artists.
Art Basel’s exhibition sectors are carefully defined to provide visitors the opportunity to see many different types of important works, from historical masterpieces to the work of the newest generation of artists.
With half of the participating galleries coming from Asia and Asia-Pacific, Art Basel Hong Kong not only provides a portal to the region’s artists, but also offers galleries from around the world a platform for bringing their highest quality work to Asia.
A 21st century metropolis, Hong Kong ranks among the world’s most dynamic international capitals. During Art Basel, collaborations with local and international partners ensure a diverse range of arts programming, with hundreds of cultural events hosted across the city throughout the week.
239 of the world’s leading Modern and contemporary art galleries display premier paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, prints, photography, film, video, and digital art by over 4,000 artists.
