Art Basel earned its well-deserved name as the biggest art fair of our time by giving an unprecedented number of prominent artists and galleries from all around the world. With Art Basel Miami Beach approaching and its participants already discussed by practically everyone involved in the art world, the preparations for the next big event have already commenced. Art Basel Hong Kong (ABHK) will replace the American edition of the fair in the public spotlight in March 2024. The organizers behind Art Basel Hong Kong 2024 have just announced the list of exhibitors for the upcoming show.
Art Basel Hong Kong 2024: The Exhibitors List Finally Revealed
After its first edition took place in 2013, Art Basel Hong Kong changed the artistic landscape forever. ABHK has followed its predecessors’ footsteps and attracted hundreds of thousands of national and international collectors, galleries, and artists. From that point on, Art Basel Hong Kong started establishing its reputation as the most influential art fair in Asia.
Art Basel Hong Kong: What’s On?
Art Basel Hong Kong 2024 will traditionally feature several sectors. Galleries, Insights, and Discoveries will be where the main action will take place. The Kabinett sector will showcase works focused on a specific theme, and Encounters will feature large-scale installations and sculptures. Conversations is the sector for those who wish to learn about the latest trends in the arts from leading experts in the industry. Insights will focus on historical artwork from the Asian-Pacific region. Apart from paintings, sculptures, installations, and mixed-media pieces, the audience will have a chance to enjoy documentaries about the exhibiting artists in the designated Film sector.
Trends to Look Out For
This year, the Hong Kong edition of the influential fair will represent the growing interest in textiles as a medium. Most notably, Alison Jacques (London) will bring works by the legendary textile artist Sheila Hicks, and BANK (Shanghai) plans on spotlighting the contributions of Maryn Varbanov, a Bulgarian artist who led the fiber-arts movement and influenced the development of Chinese avant-garde.
Of course, a contemporary art fair is not complete without digital artwork. Taro Nasu (Tokyo) will show works by the acclaimed visual and sound artist Ryoji Ikeda, while Galerie nächst St. Stephan Rosemarie Schwarzwälder (Vienna) will present an AI-generated film by Miao Ying.
Overall, the ABHK 2024 exhibitors list features 242 galleries from Asia, Europe, North and Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa, including 25 first-time participants. Art Basel Hong Kong 2024 will take place from March 28 through March 30, 2024.
