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.
