West Bund Art Gallery – Asia contemporary art buyer
October 4, 2019 @ 8:00 amOctober 7, 2019 @ 5:00 pm HKT
The exciting 15th edition of the Asia Contemporary Art Show opens on Friday, October 4th, 2019 at the Conrad Hong Kong with an exclusive UnionPay Private View followed by the UnionPay VIP Collectors Preview and continues on Saturday to Monday.
On show will be more than 2,000 pieces of the most dynamic contemporary art being produced today. Presented across 65 art living spaces, including original paintings, limited editions, sculpture, and photography from some of the world’s most interesting and promising artists – from emerging and mid-career artists to those who have already achieved recognition in private and public collections and at auction.
Bringing a world of art to Hong Kong, the 15th edition of the Show will feature Intersections: China, the fifth in the popular sector series and Artist Dialogues, dedicated to solo and joint artist presentations.
Intersections: China presents a series of dynamic and diverse works by selected galleries, artists, and artist collectives that use concepts, techniques, materials or subject matter drawn from the past and re-envision them to reflect the present, find inspiration from traditional arts and reinterpret them for today’s sensibilities, or combine Western artistic genres with China aesthetic forms.
Artist Dialogues invites artists from around the world to exhibit in a solo or joint presentation. Spread across more than 20 art spaces, artists will enjoy an intimate environment to sell their work and to articulate their artistic practice into a viewing, learning, and art buying experience for the visitor.
The 15th Asia Contemporary Art Show (October 4th–October 7th, 2019) presents a unique opportunity for art galleries and artists to participate in the only contemporary art fair in Hong Kong in the Fall and the largest and longest-running hotel art fair in Asia. The Show coincides with the Fall auction season at Sotheby’s, Poly Auction, and others and takes place during the Golden Week national holiday, a week when many thousands of visitors descend to Hong Kong.
Recognized as Asia’s hub for contemporary art, Hong Kong is the world’s 3rd largest art market and remains the region’s only tax-free and duty-free port for the import and export of artworks. It is home to a large community of collectors and high-net-worth local residents and expats and is a short flight away for art buyers from China and other parts of Asia.
As an added bonus, all exhibitors at the Show are featured on Asia’s art website, Asia Contemporary Art Buyer. This provides you with an opportunity to present up to 50 artworks and participate in a weekly Art Alert broadcasts to over 35,000 collectors and art buyers throughout Asia, generating inquiries before, during, and after the Show.
About the gallery
Presenting its 15th edition this Fall, the Asia Contemporary Art Show was founded by collector and gallery owner Mark Saunderson, along with business partners Douwe Cramer and Sarah Benecke.
The Show is held in Hong Kong during the two most important seasons for buying art, in the Spring during Hong Kong Arts Month and in the Autumn during the Fall art auction season. It is driven by three individuals who combined have over 60 years’ experience in Hong Kong’s media and events business, as well as the city’s buzzing art scene.
An exceptional team of customer-oriented staff from Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, South Korea, Japan, the Philippines, Australia, the UK and Germany deliver a vibrant and diverse art experience for collectors and art buyers, in addition to providing great service and support for exhibitors from all around the world.
The founders of the Asia Contemporary Art Show also produce Asia’s leading art website Asia Contemporary Art Buyer, that offers an engaging art browsing experience with more than 1,600 artists and over 11,500 artworks. It also hosts comprehensive exhibitor information, the artists they represent and artworks exhibited at each Show. Asia Contemporary Art Buyer extends the value for both buyers and sellers of art, from an exciting four-day Show with face-to-face engagement with artists and galleries, to 365 days a year and 24/7 online browsing and art buying experience.
Art enthusiasts are also welcome to visit Fabrik Gallery, the company’s vibrant space in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong’s popular art enclave and host to over 20 art galleries. With an active exhibit calendar and some of the liveliest openings, the Fabrik Gallery team is informed and welcoming in engaging both the seasoned collector and first-time buyer.
