Art Basel in Hong Kong
From emerging talents to the Modern masters of both Asia and the West, the premiere edition of Art Basel in Hong Kong
will trace twelve decades of art history across its four sectors: Galleries, Insights, Discoveries, and Encounters. On display will be the highest quality of paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photographs, video and editioned works from the 20th and 21st centuries, by more than 2,000 artists from Asia and around the globe.
The new show gives galleries from around the world a platform in Asia to demonstrate the way they work with artists, and bring their highest quality work to Hong Kong. It takes place 23-26 May 2013.
The Galleries sector
will present over 170 of the world's leading Modern and contemporary art galleries – displaying paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photographs, film, video and digital artworks from the 20th and 21st centuries.
presents projects developed specifically for the Hong Kong show. These galleries must be based in Asia or the Asia-Pacific region – from Turkey to New Zealand, including Asia, the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent – and exclusively present works by artists from that region.
gives a global platform to emerging contemporary artists from all over the world, showcasing work by the next generation of talent at an early stage in their career.
Dedicated to presenting large-scale sculpture and installation works by leading artists from around the world, Encounters
provides visitors with the opportunity to see works that transcend the traditional art fair stands.
