Hong Kong‘s segment of Art Basel has returned to its pre-pandemic glory with this year’s 2022 exhibition. Featuring premier galleries from Asia and beyond, the fair provided an in-depth overview of Asia-Pacific's astonishing diversity through Modern and contemporary works by established and emerging artists. This year’s presence realised 137 galleries from 28 countries and territories, with 75 of those galleries running satellite booths.
On top of the heavy-hitting galleries like Perrotin, Paris, the show welcomed 15 newcomers, including Galería Cayón from Madrid, Mizoe Art Gallery with spaces in Tokyo and Fukuoka, and Jason Haam from Seoul. Bringing together Art Basel’s physical and digital platforms in full scale, Art Basel Hong Kong embraced a hybrid format, broadcasting the vibrancy and excitement from the show floor to audiences worldwide via its digital initiative Art Basel Live.
‘It is inspiring to see the amazing commitment and surging number of galleries participating in our Hong Kong show, despite the current challenges and uncertainties,’ says Marc Spiegler, Global Director, Art Basel. ‘This stands as testament to the show’s continued role as a vital platform for cultural exchange in the region.”
