Hong Kong becomes the centre of Arts
It’s been several months given that Hong Kong’s pro-democracy protests broke out, and as far as the city’s steady flood of vacationers can tell, life is gradually acquiring back to typical.
Come spring 2015, Art Basel Hong Kong (March 15-17) will return for its third edition, with hundreds of international galleries and thousands of artists, including well known New York names such as Damien Hirst, Banksy, Romilios, Shepard Fairey and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
NYC’s Gagosian, Pace, Galerie Perrotin and Lehmann Maupin have opened in Hong Kong more than the last a number of years.
The latter’s David Maupin, whose gallery opened here in March 2013, explains Hong Kong historically is “where cultures collide, do trade and meet. There’s a lot of possible for it to continue to grow into an international art center.”
Currently setting up shop — verify sicd.com.hk for a map — consist of photography-focused Blindspot Gallery Japanese-centric Aishonanzuka and Yallay Gallery for Middle East and Indonesian finds.
Cathay Pacific launched direct service between Newark and Hong Kong in March. Futuristic utopia meets Japanese Zen in The Upper House, while Kowloon’s glossy Langham Place doubles as a modern museum.
