Art Basel Hong Kong May 23-26

New-look art fair to draw on world canvas - The Standard: "Art HK, the annual art fair founded in 2007, becomes Art Basel in Hong Kong starting this year. The Swiss company behind Art Basel and Art Basel Miami Beach took a 60 percent stake in Art HK organizer Asian Art Fairs in 2011. The deal represents a vote of confidence in Hong Kong's continued development as a market place for art. The fair itself takes place from May 23 to 26. As with Art HK, it will be held at the convention and exhibition center. And, as in the past, the fair will bring with it a wide range of other events, such as panel discussions and interviews. The organizers are also planning a special kids' program. . . ." (read more at link above)
