Hong Kong has long positioned itself as a creative hub in Asia, and Art Central has become one of the most anticipated events in the arts community.
Shining a spotlight on contemporary work coming out of the Asia Pacific region, and showcasing established artists across the globe, Art Central is a platform for more than 100 international galleries, from Tokyo, Taipei, Sydney and Seoul, to name just a few.
Though there is no doubt a strong focus on emerging Asian artists, you can also see works from Europe, South America, and North America, making it a dynamic and varied international art event.
Traditionally, the event was a six-day program with exhibitions, large-scale installations, panel discussions with artists and influencers, film screenings, and live performances at the Central Harbourfront, with up to 40,000 visitors.
For 2021 Art Central has been scaled down due to COVID-19 restrictions and moved to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Art Central offers activities that are fun for the whole family, so if you are travelling with kids, let them express their inner artist at the kids’ areas.
Whether you are an experienced art collector, a new buyer, or simply an art lover, Art Central is a fantastic opportunity to see new works from Asia and around the globe.
Registration for the 2021 event is already closed, so you’ll need connections if you don’t have a ticket already.
