Art Basel 2022 – Hong Kong

HK$150.00 – HK$950.00

Art Basel is one of the region’s biggest and most respected art events, bringing together established artists and new emerging talent from around the globe.

The participating galleries for the 2021 event have yet to be announced. In previous years, over 240 galleries, with a good geographic balance of art from both the East and West have joined the event. Art Basel prides itself not only on its ability to attract well-known artists, but also on its commitment to providing a platform that connects Asian artists with the rest of the world.

    In addition, Art Basel hosts a Conversations program, with talks and discussions with artists, gallerists, collectors, and curators.

    If you are attending this event with children, let them explore at the UBS Junior Art Hub, with free art programs that invite kids to create their own masterpieces.

    With so much to see and experience at Art Basel, it can seem a bit overwhelming, so to get the most out of your experience, ticket holders can enjoy a free guided tour. You can book a tour online by emailing: guidedtour@para-site.art
