“Art is certainly closing out a solid year in Hong Kong, albeit in the past few weeks there has been distraction from trade issues and yo-yo stock indices. No one blinked this past Fall, when we saw record attendance and turnover at art fairs and solid auction results.” remarked Show Director Mark Saunderson, “On top of that, early benefits from the Greater Bay Area development - the economic hub made up of Hong Kong, Macau and nine mainland Chinese cities. So looking ahead to 2019, there’s certainly fresh opportunity to spur Hong Kong’s dynamic art market and its dominant role in Asia.”
Saunderson continues, “At the Asia Contemporary Art Show, it’s our mission to curate an intimate art experience and introduce a wide range of art and artists, both emerging and mid-career to our visitors. The Show next Spring is no exception. Erica Hestu Wahyuni, for example, is a promising artist from Indonesiawhoseworks have been sold at auction, including Christie’s, Sotheby’s, Bonhams and other reputable houses. Timofey Smirnov is a unique graphic artist from Russia who has won recognition from the Russian Academy of Arts. We are also excited to present a Gao Jiayu, a Chinese artist who works in porcelain. Her works explain the close interplay between humans and the universe.”
