Hong Kong's Art Week in 24hrs

There’s never enough time to see it all during Hong Kong Art Week. From heavyweight commercial fairs such as Art Basel and Art Central to vibrant gallery shows and cool non-profit events and exhibitions, The Artling offers a comprehensive guide to help you make the most of your visit. 

 

Suggested Route

Since most of the activity is concentrated in Central, if you have a limited schedule, travel along the waterfront from Art Basel to Art Central and then hit up "Debris" at Pier 4, before taking the pedestrian walkway to Exchange Square for a look at the Lynn Chadwick sculptures.

From there, continue to Pedder Building (our gallery listings shown below are arranged from the top floor down) and then take a quick stroll to White Cube and Galerie Perrotin at 50 Connaught Road. Don’t forget to look up along the way, to catch a glimpse of Antony Gormley’s Event Horizon installations.
