Yet another of Art Basel’s premier modern and contemporary art fairs is about to take place, this time in Hong Kong, from March 24 to 26. Let Baroque Travel get you there!
Not only is Art Basel a driving force in supporting the role that galleries play in nurturing artists’ careers, it also frequently expands its platforms to include new developments in the visual arts. Art Basel Hong Kong 2016 is no exception. Following a stunning event in 2015, which placed Hong Kong in the center of Asia’s international art scene, this year’s upcoming show, which will be held at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center, is expected to be even more exciting. It offers a platform for visitors to see international works, more than half of which have been created by artists from Asia and Asia Pacific.
The 2016 show will offer an in-depth overview of what this diverse region is capable of through historic material as well as cutting edge creations by leading and emerging artists. The exhibition will be divided into different sectors so that visitors can view many different types of art, including historical masterpieces and those created by the current generation.
Hong Kong ranks as one of the most dynamic international capitals in the world, and throughout the week of Art Basel, hundreds of cultural events will be held throughout the city. Art Basel itself will trace 12 decades of 20th and 21st Century art, including paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photographs, video and editions of the highest quality, representing over 3,000 artists from all over the world. The show will also offer a platform for cross-cultural exchanges among artists, curators, visitors and art galleries.
Some of the highlights of Art Basel Hong Kong include Encounters, which is dedicated to presenting large-scale sculpture and installations by leading international artists and Films, which is dedicated to movies by and about artists. Screenings will take place throughout the week of March 21 to 26 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center and the Hong Kong Arts Center. One of the most important sectors is a Crowdfunding project, a video art showcase from a cutting-edge Kong Kong media company called Videotage. Discussions will feature topics such as art in the YouTube generation and the art startup.
