It’s here and it’s spectacular!
ART HK 2010 opened last night at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in grand style. While our Winebuzz.hk colleagues were downstairs at Vinexpo Asia-Pacific 2010 we were upstairs exploring the third ART HK exhibition, and our verdict? It’s a must-see!
With over 150 galleries from 29 countries presenting some of the globe’s top international artists and a diverse line up of coinciding events, ART HK 10: Hong Kong International Art Fair is on in the HKCEC from 27-30 May 2010.
There are more than 10 solo exhibitions by an eclectic selection of international artists. These include Japanese pop-art star Yoshitomo Nara at Marianne Boesky Gallery, Israel’s Gideon Rubin at Rokeby and Aya Ben Ron at Aando Fine Art, Australian Susan Norrie at Mori Gallery, and Britain’s Jim Lambie at The Modern Institute and Damien Hirst at White Cube. An exciting line-up of contemporary Chinese art is led by Liu Ye (Sperone Westwater), whose painting Bright Road sold for a record US$2.45 million at Sotheby’s this April.
We had an amazing response to our free tickets for tonights Late View Benefitting Aids Concern; but if you missed out tickets for the general opening to the ART HK 10 cost HK$200 and are available at the door.
The Fair is open from noon until 9pm (27 May), 8pm (28 May), 7pm (29 May) and 5pm (30 May).
The Intelligence Squared Asia debate will be held on 28 May from 6 to 8pm. Tickets are priced HK$300 including admission to ART HK 10 and are available through www.hkticketing.com.
