It’s the moment art lovers have been waiting for: Art Basel in Hong Kong—Asia’s leading art fair—is returning to Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from March 27 to 31. As Art Basel in Hong Kong opens its doors, we highlight 10 booths you should make a beeline for.
Isa Lorenzo, director of Silverlens Galleries, gives quite the laconic answer when asked about the gallery’s recent change of address. “Our lease ended,” she says, as if to declare, and that’s that. But upon entering the new space, it’s immediately perceptible that there’s more to the story, as far as new beginnings are concerned.
We are excited to share with you our fourth website in thirteen years, still designed by Inksurge Studio.
Aside from the website being completely compatible with your phones, tablets, iPads, etc., we present header images that snapshot our onsite exhibitions, fairs, collaborations, and other important news about our artists; artist portfolios via selected works from their practices; and exhibition catalogs available as downloads.
