Hong Kong has become the center of the art market in Asia. Sponsored by Deutsche Bank, ART HK 11 is the place of experience and excitement of the contemporary art world in Asia first hand. Now the third largest auction market in the world after New York and London, Hong Kong is the location of choice for collectors from across Asia to buy art. Equally international collectors, museum directors, curators and other art professionals are drawn to ART HK by an opportunity to see quality and geographical diversity of art not presented anywhere else in the world.
With 260 of the most influential galleries from 38 countries showing work of leading artists, ART HK has asserted its position amongst the most important art fairs in the world.
In adddition to the Galleries Section, ART HK will present ART FUTURES, a section devoted to young galleries showcasing emerging artistic talent (35 years of age or younger). ART HK 11 will also include the launch of ASIA ONE: a section dedicated to solo presentations by Asian artists represented by Asian galleries. Together these two new sections will provide a focused and insightful view of the latest developments in contemporary art in Asia and beyond, offering something new, fresh and exciting for visitors to discover.
