Fourth Hong Kong International Art Fair Welcomes Over 161 Galleries from 30 Countries
A marble sculpture by Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei entitled 'Marble Arm' is seen at ART HK 11, Asia's largest art fair, Hong Kong, China, 25 May 2011. Ai Weiwei has not been seen since his detention by the Chinese authorities on 04 April 2011. Despite China's crackdown on the artist, the ART HK 11 is able to host galleries from around the world, some of whom are displaying his work under the 'one country, two systems' agreement which guarantees freedom of artistic expression in Hong Kong, under the city's mini-constitution, or 'Basic Law'. ART HK 11 will run from 26-29 May 2011, and will host 260 galleries from 38 countries. EPA/ALEX HOFFORD.

HONG KONG.- Back for its fourth year, ART HK 11 – Hong Kong International Art Fair will take place from 26 – 29 May 2011 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). Sponsored by Deutsche Bank, ART HK 11 presents a strengthened exhibitor line-up that confirms the Fair‟s place as Asia‟s premier art fair, and firmly establishes ART HK 11 amongst the world‟s top art fairs. As part of its development and commitment to its role as the region‟s art hub, ART HK 11 introduces ASIA ONE, a new section of the fair showcasing work by Asian artists.

This year, ART HK will welcome over 161 galleries from 30 countries in its main gallery section. The strength of Western galleries represented at the Fair is world class, with the return of galleries from across Europe and the USA including Marianne Boesky Gallery, Leo Castelli Gallery, James Cohan Gallery, Pilar Corrias Gallery, Gagosian Gallery, Greenberg Van Doren Gallery, Hauser & Wirth, Lehmann Maupin, Galerie Lelong, Lisson Gallery, Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, Sperone Westwater and White Cube. Galleries new to the Fair include Galleria Massimo De Carlo from Milan; Sadie Coles HQ, Stephen Friedman Gallery, Victoria Miro Gallery, Kate MacGarry and Timothy Taylor Gallery from London; Acquavella Galleries, Gladstone Gallery, Marianne Goodman Gallery, Sean Kelly Gallery; David Zwirner and L&M Arts from New York, Yvon Lambert from Paris, and Sprüth Magers Berlin London amongst many others.

Leading galleries from Asia such as Eslite Gallery from Taipei, Hanart TZ from Hong Kong, Kukje Gallery from Seoul, Long March Space and Pace Beijing from Beijing, Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery from Sydney and SCAI THE BATHHOUSE from Tokyo will return this year. New additions include Nature Morte from New Delhi, PKM Gallery from Seoul, Anna Schwartz Gallery from Melbourne and Vitamin Creative Space from Guangzhou.

This year, ART HK introduces a new gallery feature section to the Fair. Entitled, ASIA ONE, the section is dedicated to galleries in Asia who will exhibit a solo presentation by an artist of Asian origin. The aim of ASIA ONE is to present Asian artists and their galleries with an international platform and provide a unique opportunity for visitors to experience a diverse and current view of the Asian art scene.

“We are delighted to welcome such a high calibre of galleries from around the world to ART HK 11” explains Magnus Renfrew, Fair Director, ART HK. “It‟s really exciting to see the Fair progress with the support of Deutsche Bank. The new section of ASIA ONE will provide an additional dedicated platform showcasing the vibrant and exciting developments in Asian art, alongside the Fair‟s selection of the best galleries from across the world”.

ART HK 11 will also see the development of the ART FUTURES section, showcasing work by emerging artists represented by new galleries from around the globe that are less than five years old. The ART FUTURES prize is awarded to one artist featured in the section by an expert panel of judges to include Lars Nittve, Executive Director of the West Kowloon Cultural District‟s M+ and Hans Ulrich Obrist, Co-Director of Exhibitions & Programs and Director of International Projects at the Serpentine Gallery in London. The ART FUTURES Prize 2010 was awarded to Shahzia Sikander for her solo presentation at Pilar Corrias Gallery.

Since its inception in 2008, ART HK has become a key fixture on the international art calendar, attracting a rich mix of international galleries, collectors, curators and museum directors. ART HK 10 hosted 155 galleries from 29 different countries, presenting work by more than 1,000 artists. The four-day art fair welcomed 46,115 visitors, up 65 percent on 2009. The fact that there are no taxes on the import or export of art, combined with the role of the city as the financial capital of the Far East, geographically positioned at the heart of Asia, are some of the key reasons why Hong Kong has emerged as Asia‟s primary destination for art. The launch of Gagosian Gallery in Hong Kong next year, in addition to the appointment of key artworld professionals running the West Kowloon Cultural District further affirms Hong Kong‟s position as a major destination on the international cultural map.
