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.
