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.
Now in its fifth year, the six-day program (VIP Preview on March 26) includes exhibitions, large-scale installations, panel discussions with artists and influencers, film screenings, and live performances.
Art Central takes place at the Central Harbourfront on Hong Kong Island, which is transformed into a huge exhibition area. Last year’s event attracted almost 40,000 visitors, and with new galleries joining the line-up, 2019’s Art Central is sure to bring in even more.
Jimmy Choo and Swarovski are some of the big name partners for the event, and at the Fair Dining area you can find Michelin-star chefs and some of Hong Kong’s hottest eateries serving up fantastic dishes.
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.
Tickets go on sale in early 2019, and can be purchased from the Art Central website.
