More photos from the Hong Kong International Art Fair.

If you haven’t made plans yet to visit ART HK: Hong Kong International Art Fair on right now at the HKCEC you should look into it now.

Here are more photos from the exhibit that features over 150 galleries from 29 countries presenting some of the globe’s top international artists.

ART HK continues to push boundaries with displays of experimental art, in addition to video and installation works, that bring art off the wall and diversify viewer experiences. The work of emerging Japanese artist, Noriko Yamaguchi, is one example. Exploring technology, mythology and feminism through bodily transformation and endurance, Yamaguchi camouflages her body with a variety of striking materials to create a second skin, a visual spectacle that was a highlight of the Fair.

A compelling selection of renowned Japanese artists is on show, including Yoshitomo Nara at Marianne Boesky Gallery, who leads the generation of Japanese “New Pop” artists that rose to prominence in the 1990s. Returning for a second year to the show, Nara will be showcasing works such as Rock ‘n Roll the Roll, composed of acrylic on wood, among other pieces that exemplify his work as a reflection of the memory of childhood through the use of seemingly innocent children and pets.

ART HK is organised by Asian Art Fairs Ltd, a joint venture between three of the world’s leading events companies. Their individual portfolios include initiating 13 International Contemporary Art Fairs in London and New York.

The Fair is open from noon until 8pm tonight, 7pm (29 May) and 5pm (30 May).

Tickets to ART HK 10 are available through www.hkticketing.com.
