This year marks the first-ever Art Basel Hong Kong. The legendary art fair, already an all-out annual event in both Basel and Miami, made its Asian debut on May 23 and will continue until May 26. While it certainly is an international showcase, featuring works from across Europe and the United States, half of the participating galleries are solely based in Asia and Asia-Pacific, making Art Basel Hong Kong a major cultural outpost for regions that have been previously neglected in the art market. Now that HK is hosting the glitz and glamour of Basel, join us in checking out all of the pieces, people, and parties that went on during Art Basel Hong Kong.
This Thursday, Art Basel, the world's premiere art fair, will hold its inaugural debut in Hong Kong. The four-day annual show, which has only been presented in Switzerland and the United States, will bring together over 2,000 international artists and 245 leading art galleries to Hong Kong's waterfront convention center. To prepare for the week, we've put together a list of key places to check out while you're in the city. More»
