Art Basel Hong Kong 2016

Art Basel in Asia

Hong Kong, March 24 – 26, 2016

Following a breakthrough 2015 edition which placed the 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.

The show

With half of the participating galleries coming from Asia and Asia-Pacific, our show in 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.

What to expect

From emerging talents to the Modern masters of both Asia and the West, Art Basel in Hong Kong traces twelve decades of 20th and 21st century art. Paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photographs, video and editioned works of the highest quality are exhibited, representing more than 3,000 artists from around the globe. Through a program of discussions and presentations, the show also offers a platform for cross-cultural exchanges among artists, gallerists, curators, collectors and visitors.
