Art Scene: ART HK 12 in Hong Kong

From May 17-20, 2012 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre the ART HK 12 art fair will welcome over 63,000 guests from around the world. A total of 266 galleries representing 38 territories will showcase art from influential galleries, such as Gagosian Gallery, Marian Goodman Gallery, Sean Kelly Gallery and Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin.

“The gallery scene has been invigorated over the last couple of years by the arrival of major international galleries including Gagosian Gallery (2011), White Cube in March 2012, Pearl Lam Galleries in May 2012, and Emmanuel Perrotin, Simon Lee and Platform China in spring 2012,” said Magnus Renfrew, fair director of ART HK 12.  “They have strengthened an already vibrant gallery scene in Hong Kong, and are a reflection that the international art world recognises the importance of Hong Kong as the location to launch their commercial activities in Asia.”
