The 11th Asia Contemporary Art Show
The largest contemporary art fair returns in September
The popular Asia Contemporary Art Show returns with its 11th successful edition from September 21st to 24th at the Conrad Hong Kong, presenting works by artists from over 20 countries around the world and introduces a new sector series, Intersections. The series will focus on the conceptual crossing of artistic ideas between past and present, traditional and modern as well as East and West, with Japan the first country to be in the spotlight. Making a return will be Artist Dialogues, a whole floor dedicated to solo and joint artist presentations. Both features offer a more thematically focused and hands-on viewing experience for visitors.
“As the longest-running hotel art fair in Asia,” Show Director Mark Saunderson adds, “our aim has always been to find creative ways to enhance the art viewing experience. With Intersections: Japan, visitors to the show will have the unique opportunity to view an array of
artworks that range from paintings to woven bamboo works, while with Artist Dialogues visitors will have the chance to meet and speak with artists from across the world. No other art fair in
Hong Kong gathers so many artists in one place!” Saunderson continues, “And with the generous support of our new
Lead Partner UnionPay International, as well as other show partners, the Asia Contemporary Art Show offers new and returning guests a range of complimentary alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks – an unequalled hospitality experience among local art fairs.”
Welcoming more than 80 galleries from Asia and the world, including up-andcoming and mid-career artists, the fall edition will be the largest contemporary art fair in the second half of the year. The show kicks off on Thursday, September 21st with the exclusive UnionPay Private View, followed by an invitation-only UnionPay VIP Collectors Preview. General admission opens on Friday, September 22nd with fun HK Liquor Store Art Night, and continues with regular show hours over the weekend.
