Art Basel Hong Kong announces its exhibitors for 2020

DESPITE nearly half a year of political unrest, international art lovers will be pleased to hear Art Basel Hong Kong has been confirmed for 2020; making it the art fair’s eighth edition in Asia. Taking place next March at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, you can now discover all 242 galleries who will be participating in the highly anticipated event. Featuring familiar faces and new voices in the art world; Art Basel Hong Kong, as always, will represent the best in upcoming art from around the world, as well as shining a light on the curated presence of Asia’s finest artists.

Speaking after doubts that the notorious industry event would go ahead this year, Adeline Ooi, Director of Asia for Art Basel Hong Kong affirmed it would be returning: “The decision to continue with the show is made in support of everything you, we, our partners, the local art scene, art collectors from Asia and beyond have invested into Hong Kong, our fair and Asia in general over the years.”

In anticipation of next year’s fair, Glass Magazine have selected a few of the exhibitors to watch out of the hundreds that attend Art Basel Hong Kong, a true testament to art’s unfettering endurance in times of unrest.
