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 2022 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.
The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai is transformed for three days into a hub of creative display, with seven sectors to explore:
Galleries: A mix of both modern and contemporary art, including paintings, drawings, photography, sculptures, and digital artworks
Insights: Unique curated projects from Asia, the Middle East, and India
Discoveries: New artists get their opportunity to premiere contemporary art created especially for Art Basel
Kabinett: Booths that display thematically-focused projects
Encounters: A great opportunity to see large-scale sculptures and installations
Film: Showing short films and special screenings
Magazines: An exhibit of art publications from around the world
In addition, Art Basel hosts a Conversations program, with talks and discussions with artists, gallerists, collectors, and curators.
