The Spring Edition of the Asia Contemporary Art Show will be the first art fair to open its doors to collectors and art buyers during Hong Kong Art Week; beginning with an invitation-only Langton’s VIP Collectors Preview on March 17. The art show will take place from March 17 to 20 – with general admissions starting on March 18 – at the Conrad Hong Kong and will welcome in excess of 80 galleries and artists from Asia and the world. The artworks will include pieces from up-and-coming and mid-career artists, to those who have achieved success at auction.
Now in its 10th edition, the Asia Contemporary Art Show presents two fresh new features, China Perspectives and Artist Projects, which reflect the evolving interests and tastes of both today’s young collectors and those with more experience. China Perspectives will present contemporary artworks from new and emerging Chinese artists, while Artist Projects brings solo or joint artist presentations to 25 art spaces spread across two floors. Check out eight of our favorite works in the slides below.
“Our show is about engagement and discovery,” says Show Director Mark Saunderson. “When visitors come to our show, they have the unique opportunity to interact with the creators of art themselves, like in Artist Projects. This standout feature makes the experience at the Asia Contemporary Art Show quite different from other art fairs, where typically only galleries are present and not the artists.”
“We also aim to provide a platform that enables art and artists to enter the vibrant Hong Kong art market, like with China Perspectives. Art fairs offer a springboard into the market and we endeavour to present works that appeal to young, tech-savvy collectors, as well as more experienced collectors who appreciate direct interaction with the art” he added.
