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.
After an online event last year, 2022 sees a return to a more traditional five-day program which should include exhibitions, large-scale installations, panel discussions with artists and influencers, film screenings, and live performances, although it’s still unclear if it will match the scale of past events that attracted up to 40,000 attendees.
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.To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
