Art Central is brought to Hong Kong by the same team as Art HK, now known as Art Basel, Hong Kong. “Satellite fairs are an integral part of Art Week in global hubs such as London, Paris, and Miami. Art Central certainly lifts Hong Kong’s Art Week to an international standard,” says Fair Co-Director Eve Share Banghart. Banghart will be heading Art Central in conjunction with Co-Director Maree di Pasquale, both bring impressive global art fair experience to the team.
Featuring over seventy galleries from the Asia Pacific along with the rest of the world, Art Central will feature an exciting collection of both emerging and established artists. Emerging artists have a dedicated section, appropriately titled “Rise”, showcasing both solo and dual artist presentations from spaces launched in the last five years.
An ambitious interactive program of talks and panel discussions presented by The Asia Society Hong Kong will complement the fair experience. Held daily, the program provides a means for visitors to directly engage with some of the leading artistic trends and curatorial practices of contemporary art in Asia and beyond, including a panel discussion on contemporary ink art.
