From 14 to 16 March 2015, Art Central will take place on the new Central Harbour front as the first satellite art fair in Hong Kong. Art Central will debut their first fair outdoor in front of the Hong Kong harbour with a magnificent view of TST. The fair is timed alongside Hong Kong Art Week, where art lovers , buyers, curators and art enthusiasts from Hong Kong and all over the world descent upon Hong Kong. This year, Art Basel takes place from 15-17 March and the Hong Kong Contemporary Art Fair is on from 12 to 15 March 2015.
Art Central is the brainchild of former ART HK team, Tim Etchells, Sandy Angus, Will Ramsay and Charles Ross. Eve Share Banghart (from ART HK) and Maree Di Pasquale (former Melbourne Art Fair Assistant Director) together with their board of director and gallery selection committee members brings a wealth of experience in curating galleries and artists from all over the world to the fair. Art Central will feature over 70 galleries from Asia Pacific and the world, and will present contemporary work from established artists and newcomers. Also on the program are talks and panel discussions organized by Asia Society on the leading art trends and curatorial practices of contemporary art in Asia. A highlight of the fair will be the dedicated emerging section – ‘Rise’ which will showcase both solo and dual artist presentations from spaces launched in the last five years.
