MARCH 27-31, 2019
Art Basel, the global network of art fairs that have transformed the worldwide art market, returns to Hong Kong for its seventh edition March 27-31. The fair which was founded in Basel, Switzerland in 1970 and expanded to Miami in 2002, added Art Basel Hong Kong in 2013 to explore Asian markets.
As China has opened itself up to the west, it has established itself over the last two decades as a cultural and financial powerhouse. Its recent proliferation of millionaires and billionaires has made it the second-largest art market in the world.
Prominent galleries and established and emerging artists from across the globe will exhibit at Art Basel Hong Kong. However, in an effort to maintains its commitment to the Asia-Pacific region, half of Art Basel Hong Kong’s participating galleries come from within the region.
