Art Basel Hong Kong 2014
While Oscar Murillo’s chocolate factory churns out candy back at David Zwirner’s New York space—where no paintings are displayed—the Asian market has snapped half of the six on view in Hong Kong on the first day of Art Basel’s second Hong Kong edition.
Next year, Art Basel announced, its Hong Kong fair will take place not in May, as it has previously, but in March. Mark your calendars: it will run in 2015 from Sunday, March 15 through Tuesday, March 17, with VIP previews on the evening of Friday, March 13 and all day on Saturday, March 14.
This year’s fair is still scheduled for May, and will run at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from Wednesday, May 14 (the preview day), through Sunday, May 18.
A year and a half after snapping up a majority stake in the Art Hong Kong fair, the Art Basel group is readying the debut edition of Art Basel Hong Kong, as it has rechristened the fair, and today released the list of 245 exhibitors that will present work at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from May 23 through 26.
