(Hong Kong, China)
Art Basel Hong Kong opens its 7th edition this Friday, March 29th, and goes on until Sunday, March 31st. The show features 242 galleries from 36 countries, and four of them from Brazil, namely Bergamin & Gomide, Fortes D’Aloia & Gabriel, Mendes Wood DM and Galeria Nara Roesler, galleries that were present also last year.
Hong Kong’s biggest annual art event, Art Basel is divded in four spaces: the main sector of the show, “Galleries”, which features leading international galleries – Latin American presence is rather small, and Asia and the Asia-Pacific regions respond for most of the exhibition -; both in the “Galleries” sector and in the peripheral parts of the show, namely “Insights” (featuring presentations by one or two artists with exceptional historical materials and strong thematic exhibitions), “Discoveries” (focused on solo shows by emerging artists), “Kabinett” (dedicated to curated exhibitions within the galleries’ booths), “Encounters” and “Film.”
