After the coronavirus pandemic made it the first art fair canceled in 2020, Art Basel Hong Kong will return this spring with a in-person edition that will be accompanied by a hybrid digital format that will build on its recent series of online viewing rooms.
For its ninth edition, Art Basel Hong Kong revealed the list of exhibitors that will participate in the fair, slated to run from May 21 to May 23, with two VIP days beginning May 19, at the Hong Kong Convention Center.
As the art world beings to return to staging large-scale, in-person events, Art Basel Hong Kong will mark the third major international art fair to stage an in-person iteration, after Art Dubai last month and Frieze New York, which will host a slimmed down version in the first week of May.
The 104 galleries from 23 countries participating in the fair includes several blue-chip international dealers like Hauser & Wirth, David Zwirner, Gagosian, and Pace alongside numerous Asia-based galleries such as Beijing Commune, Hong Kong’s Pearl Lam Galleries, Seoul’s Kukje Gallery, Tokyo’s Ota Fine Arts, and Taipei’s Mind Set Art Center.
The physical fair’s digital arm, titled “Art Basel Live: Hong Kong,” will feature 56 satellite booths curated by participating galleries who are unable to physically attend the live fair.
The fair is divided into 3 main sections: Galleries (the main area of the fair), Insights (focused on presentations around modern Asian artists), and Discoveries (in which solo shows by emerging artists will be presented). A fourth section, Museum Shows and Institutions, will feature booths curated by non-commercial art institutions in Hong Kong.
In a statement, Adeline Ooi, Art Basel’s Asia director, said “We are delighted that we are able to introduce new models that support our galleries, from the satellite booths to the expansion of our digital offerings as a way to amplify the international reach of our galleries with ‘Art Basel Live: Hong Kong.’”
