With over half of the participating galleries hailing from Asia-Pacific, an in-depth overview of the region’s diversity can be seen through the historical masterpieces and cutting-edge works by emerging and leading artists. 239 of the world’s renowned art galleries will display premier paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints, installations, photography, video, film and digital art by over 4,000 artists. It houses a great variety of art presentation that would definitely feast your eyes intriguingly.
Apart from the art exhibition, local institutions also collaborate with Art Basel to make the parallel programs unique and valuable. ‘Time Waterfall’, a special large-scaled light installation by Tatsuo Miyajima will be offered exclusively by Art Basel. It aims at conveying the eternal luminance of human life and expressing an ethos of ‘living in the present’. The work will be shown across the entire façade of Hong Kong’s iconic 490 meter high International Commerce Centre (ICC) on the Kowloon harbor front which will be visible from numerous locations across Hong Kong, including the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. Recommended locations for public viewing are Tamar Park, Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park and the terrace on Podium 3 and 4 of the IFC Mall.
