What Will They Bring? A Sneak Peek at Art Basel Hong Kong

Art galleries participating in the upcoming Art Basel Hong Kong are probably wondering which high-profile collectors will come this year and whether the new management of the fair will be able to leverage on its brand name to bring a new flock of collectors from outside the region. But meanwhile, collectors are probably also wondering: “What will the galleries bring?”

With about 245 exhibitors participating from around the world, diversity is likely to be the key word, with the usual mix of high-profile international names already announced (think Damien Hirst, Louise Bourgeois, Subodh Gupta, Murakami and Yayoi Kusama) with a good crop of young and emerging artists from the region.

ARTINFO selected a few artworks from around the world to look forward to. Click on the slideshow to see them all.


Dear Sonia,

On behalf of the National Library Board (NLB), we would like to invite you to pledge your blog to the Singapore Memory Project as part of efforts to collect memories that are already manifested in existing online channels.

The Singapore Memory Project (SMP) is a national initiative to collect, preserve and provide access to Singapore’s knowledge materials. Spearheaded by NLB, the SMP aims to build a national collection of content in diverse formats (including print, audio and video), to preserve them in digital form, and make them available for discovery and research.

By pledging your blog to SMP, you are affirming that every memory matters. Whether your posts are an account of your daily life, or an expression of your thoughts, the SMP hopes to find a home for your memories so that it can help build towards an understanding of Singapore. You will also receive a badge that you can display on your blog in recognition of your contributions.

Contributors to this blog pledging initiative will be listed on Singapore Memory portal’s blog pledging webpage. All blogs pledged to SMP will archived using NLB’s web harvesting software, in addition to images of each blog’s landing page.
