Art Basel opened the first of its 2016 fair editions in Hong Kong yesterday. With half of the participating galleries coming from Asia and Asia-Pacific, Art Basel Hong Kong not only provides a portal to the region’s artists, but also offers galleries from around the world a platform for bringing their highest quality work to Asia.
A 21st century metropolis, Hong Kong ranks among the world’s most dynamic international capitals. During Art Basel, collaborations with local and international partners ensure a diverse range of arts programming, with hundreds of cultural events hosted across the city throughout the week.
Sandy Weber and Andreas Froehlicher were on the ground in Hong Kong to provide you with some exclusive impressions from this years Vernissage.
