SPRING 2019 EDITION

BRINGING A WORLD OF ART TO HONG KONG

The Show opened on Friday, March 29th, 2019 at the Conrad Hong Kong with an exclusive UnionPay Private View followed by the UnionPay VIP Collectors Preview and continued through Monday.

 

On show were more than 2,000 pieces of the most compelling contemporary art being produced today. Presented across 85 art living spaces, the Show included original paintings, limited editions, sculpture, and photography from some of the world's most interesting and promising artists - from emerging and mid-career artists to those who have already achieved recognition in private and public collections and at auction.

 

EXCITING NEW FEATURES

Bringing a world of art to Hong Kong, the 14th edition of the Show featured Intersections: China, the fourth in the popular sector series and Artist Dialogues, dedicated to solo and joint artist presentations.


Intersections: China presented a series of dynamic and diverse works by selected galleries, artists, and artist collectives that use concepts, techniques, materials or subject matter drawn from the past and re-envision them to reflect the present, find inspiration from traditional arts and reinterpret them for today’s sensibilities, or combine Western artistic genres with Chinese aesthetic forms.


Artist Dialogues invited artists from around the world to exhibit in a solo or joint presentation. Spread across more than 20 art spaces, artists enjoyed an intimate environment to sell their work and articulated their artistic practice into a viewing, learning, and art buying experience for the visitor.

EXHIBIT AT THE SHOW NEXT FALL

 

The 15th Asia Contemporary Art Show (October 4th– October 7th, 2019) presents a unique opportunity for art galleries and artists to participate in the only contemporary art fair in Hong Kong in the Fall and the largest and longest - running hotel art fair in Asia. The Show coincides with the Golden Week national holiday in China, when travellers flock to Hong Kong and the Fall auction season at Sotheby's, Poly Auction and others.

 

Recognized as Asia’s hub for contemporary art, Hong Kong is the world's 3rd largest art market and remains the region’s only tax-free and duty-free port for the import and export of artworks. It is home to a large community of collectors and high-net-worth local residents and expats and is a short flight away for art buyers from China and other parts of Asia.

 

As an added bonus, all exhibitors at the Show are featured on Asia’s art website, Asia Contemporary Art Buyer. This provides you with an opportunity to present up to 50 artworks and participate in a weekly Art Alert broadcast to over 35,000 collectors and art buyers throughout Asia, generating inquiries before, during, and after the Show.
