Guided Viewing: Hong Kong International Art Fair (Art HK '09)
Following last year's inaugural success, the Hong Kong International Art Fair (ART HK) emerged as the leading art fair in Asia, presenting an unparalleled opportunity to see some of the freshest and most exciting work being produced around the world, alongside modern masters from the 20th century.
While last year's event showcased works of art by 101 leading art galleries, this year, Art HK 09 will bring together over 110 of the world's leading modern and contemporary art galleries from 24 countries to display unique and diverse works of art.
Amongst the overseas galleries participating for the first time are White Tube from London, Galarie Continua from Italy, Lisson Gallery from London, Gagosian Gallery, Tomio Koyama Gallery and Scai the Bathhouse from Japan.
Art Futures will be a new section dedicated to solo and two-artists presentations from young galleries on emerging artists. The fair will also feature works by Antony Gormley and Anish Kapoor for the first time in Hong Kong, alongside leading Asian artists Cai Cuo-Qiang and Jitish Kallat.
