Art Basel Hong Kong gets underway in March, with the HK edition of the international Art Basel art fair showcasing significant modern and contemporary works of art. Work from both established and emerging artists from 242 galleries and 34 countries will be exhibited. The Hong Kong edition of the fair acts as a hub for artists and galleries with half of the participating galleries coming from Asia and Asia-Pacific. It 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. 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.
Art Basel began in 1970 when three Basel gallerists put their passion and determination behind an ambitious vision to form an art fair. Now, Art Basel stages the premier international art shows in Basel and Miami. The establishment of Art Basel in Hong Kong in 2013 has led to a number of satellite events and for March to be considered ‘Art Month’ in Hong Kong.
