Our goal is to connect guests from all around the world in our home, Hong Kong, by offering possibilities of collaboration and innovation inspired by art and artists. As the key strategic cultural hub in Asia and Asia Pacific, the city plays an important role, more than ever, in bridging the evolving art landscape across regions.”

Galleries, Art Basel Hong Kong’s main sector, will feature 200 of the world’s leading galleries presenting artworks of the highest quality from their expansive programs. Among the wide breadth of works on view, textile art and its compelling diversity will be one of the key highlights. Among others, Alison Jacques (London) will dedicate its booth to Sheila Hicks’ pioneering use of fabrics and thread, while Bank (Shanghai) will showcase the works of Maryn Varbanov, a noteworthy figure in the European fiber-arts movement of the 1960s and 1970s who spent significant time in China and greatly influenced the development of the post-economic reform Chinese avant-garde.

Digital art will also have an important presence. Highlights include a presentation by Taro Nasu (Tokyo) of works by Ryoji Ikeda, an artist renowned for his exploration of raw sound in various forms; and Galerie nächst St. Stephan Rosemarie Schwarzwälder’s (Vienna) presentation of a film conceived by the artist Miao Ying, recently shortlisted for the Sigg Prize 2023, and created using AI technologies.

Several galleries will spotlight 20th-century masters and exceptional historical works, such as Liang Gallery (Taipei), who will pay tribute to the late abstract painter Hsiao Chin, and Tornabuoni Art (Paris, Florence, Forte dei Marmi, Milan, Rome, Crans-Montana), presenting a curated selection of Postwar masters including Giorgio de Chirico, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Alighiero Boetti, Lucio Fontana, Carla Accardi, Enrico Castellani, Dadamaino, Alberto Burri, Paolo Scheggi, and Piero Dorazio.

Participating in the show’s main sector for the first time, Axel Vervoordt Gallery (Antwerp, Hong Kong) will present works by multi-disciplinary conceptual artist Kimsooja, whose practice combines performance, film, photo, and site-specific installation using textile, light, and sound.

an artist inspired by his hometown’s fast-paced development whose work explores the effects of the Indian megalopolis’ urban growth on its inhabitants. Furthermore, Fine Arts, Sydney (Sydney) will present a sculptural project by Yona Lee that invites viewers to confront the way man-made structures impact public space.

Further highlights of the sector include Fiza Khatri’s installation, comprised of paintings, drawings, and sculptural garlands functioning as decorative devices, presented by Jhaveri Contemporary (Mumbai); Anh Tran’s new body of work, an immersive triptych painting in Western abstraction, presented in Asia for the first time by Fitzpatrick Gallery (Paris); Lee Kai Chung’s multi-channel video and photographic installation delving into Hong Kong’s role as a center for information exchange and intelligence operations during the Cold War era, presented by Tabula Rasa Gallery (Beijing, London).
