Art Basel in Hong Kong 2017 will feature 242 premier galleries from 34 countries and territories, as well as a new curatorial sector, Kabinett. Half of the participating galleries have exhibition spaces in Asia and the Asia Pacific region, making the show an unparalleled showcase for art from this region. Now in its fifth edition, Art Basel in Hong Kong continues to serve as a catalyst for the local art scene to flourish year-round by nurturing younger galleries and collectors, and creating connections for them with the fair's international audience, which continues to grow year after year.
. New Exhibitors: Along with a high number of returning exhibitors, the show will feature 29 galleries that will participate in the Hong Kong show for the very first time, including 10 from Asia, 10 from Europe and nine new from the Americas. New exhibitors include: A+ Contemporary, Hive Center for Contemporary Art, The Third Line, High Art, mor charpentier, Waddington Custot, Clearing, Bergamin & Gomide, kurimanzutto, Various Small Fires, and many others
. Galleries: The main sector of the show — Galleries — will feature 190 exhibitors specializing in Modern and contemporary art. The sector will include several exhibitors who are graduating into Galleries from the Insights or Discovers sector, and will now present their overall exhibition program, such as Antenna Space, Experimenter, Liang Gallery and Mujin-to Production from Asia, as well as Galerie Isabella Bortolozzi, Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler and Pi Artworks from Europe
. Insights & Discoveries: The Insights sector — presenting work by artists from Asia and the Asia Pacific region — will be dedicated to curatorial projects by 27 galleries, of which eight are completely new to the show. Discoveries — dedicated to emerging contemporary artists — has seen a notable increase in applications and will feature 25 galleries in the 2017 show, 12 of which are completely new to Art Basel in Hong Kong
. Debut of Kabinett sector in Hong Kong: For the first time, Art Basel will introduce the Kabinett sector to its Hong Kong show. A highlight of Art Basel in Miami Beach, Kabinett will see 19 exhibitors in the Galleries sector present curated projects in a separate area within their booths
. Encounters: Curated for the third consecutive year by Alexi Glass-Kantor, Encounters will present 17 ambitious, large-scale projects situated throughout the show floor — including 12 new works — by artists from across Asia and beyond
. Film: The popular Film sector will once again be curated by Beijing and Zurich-based curator, multi-media artist and producer Li Zhenhua. Presented in collaboration with the Hong Kong Arts Centre, adjacent to the HKCEC, the full Film program will be announced in the coming weeks
. Conversations and Salon: Art Basel's long-established talks program will once again offer audiences first-hand access to renowned culture speakers and opinion leaders from across the international art world. More information on Conversations & Salon will be released closer to the show
. Hong Kong Tram Project: During the Hong Kong show, Art Basel will present the public art project ‘Twenty-Five Minutes Older' by Hong Kong artist Kingsley Ng. The project — which is free to the public — will transform two of Hong Kong's iconic public trams into a moving camera obscura, creating an altered reality and allowing passengers to experience Hong Kong in a revolutionary new way – in reverse
. BMW Art Journey: A global collaboration between Art Basel and BMW to support emerging artists worldwide, the BMW Art Journey is open to artists featured within the Discoveries sector in Hong Kong and within the Positions sector at Art Basel in Miami Beach. British artist Abigail Reynolds (b. 1975), represented by Rokeby, who was the award recipient in 2016, will this year present ‘The Ruins of Time: Lost Libraries of the Silk Road' as a culmination of her experience
. Collaborations with local institutions & galleries: Art Basel is working closely with key cultural organizations across the city, including Asia Art Archive (AAA), the Asia Society, Para/Site Art Space, Spring Workshop and M+, Hong Kong's new museum for visual culture, offering an associated program of events onsite and throughout the city that takes place during the week of the show. Art Basel also continues to support the annual Hong Kong Art Week organized by the Hong Kong Art Gallery Association, taking place from October 27 – November 9, 2016
