Art Basel Hong Kong 2017

What is Art Basel Hong Kong? Originated in Switzerland, it is an international art fair that staged annually in Basel itself, Miami Beach and Hong Kong. First launched in 2013 in Hong Kong, it has attracted collectors, museum directors, curators, art spectators and students from around the world since then. It also acts as a platform for galleries to show and sell their work. Art Basel HK 2017 is the fifth edition of the city which features over 240 established galleries and 29 new ones from 34 countries and territories. You can especially enjoy the artworks from Asia and the Asia-Pacific region as half of the galleries are coming from there.
