Our Story

Presenting its 15th edition this Fall, the Asia Contemporary Art Show was founded by collector and gallery owner Mark Saunderson, along with business partners Douwe Cramer and Sarah Benecke.


The Show is held in Hong Kong during the two most important seasons for buying art, in the Spring during Hong Kong Arts Month and in the Autumn during the Fall art auction season. It is driven by three individuals who combined have over 60 years' experience in Hong Kong's media and events business, as well as the city's buzzing art scene.


An exceptional team of customer-oriented staff from Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, South Korea, Japan, the Philippines, Australia, the UK and Germany deliver a vibrant and diverse art experience for collectors and art buyers, in addition to providing great service and support for exhibitors from all around the world.

The founders of the Asia Contemporary Art Show also produce Asia's leading art website Asia Contemporary Art Buyer, that offers an engaging art browsing experience with more than 1,600 artists and over 11,500 artworks. It also hosts comprehensive exhibitor information, the artists they represent and artworks exhibited at each Show. Asia Contemporary Art Buyer extends the value for both buyers and sellers of art, from an exciting four-day Show with face-to-face engagement with artists and galleries, to 365 days a year and 24/7 online browsing and art buying experience.

Art enthusiasts are also welcome to visit Fabrik Gallery, the company's vibrant space in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong's popular art enclave and host to over 20 art galleries. With an active exhibit calendar and some of the liveliest openings, the Fabrik Gallery team is informed and welcoming in engaging both the seasoned collector and first-time buyer.
