HONG KONG.- Following an in-depth review of market conditions related to the risk to public health from the novel coronavirus (2019-nCov) outbreak, Art Central, upon careful consideration and thorough evaluation, has made the decision to cancel its upcoming edition, which was scheduled to be held from 18 to 22 March 2020.

The uncertainty has made it increasingly untenable to guarantee the safety and well-being of the public. Acting on its obligation to deliver a successful event which is ever dependent on a strong audience, the Fair’s organisers today concede to the simultaneous myriad challenges.

At the time of this release, Art Central 2020 had confirmed the participation of over 80 regional and international galleries – including a record number of Hong Kong-based exhibitors – showing alongside an acclaimed programme of public art, conversations and performance.

A spokesperson for Art Central said, “The decision to cancel Art Central 2020 was certainly not an easy one. However, it has proven to be challenging for us to guarantee a successful event for our gallery partners given the circumstances. We would like to express our gratitude to our partners, supporting organisations and galleries for supporting Art Central. In this difficult time, we want to express our support for Hong Kong, as well as the galleries and artists who have contributed to making the city a world-renowned arts hub.”

With over 37,000 visitors in 2019, Art Central is amongst the largest events of Hong Kong Art Week and a mainstay for local and international visitors participating in the region’s vibrant arts scene.

Art Central is extremely grateful for the continued support of Lead Partner United Overseas Bank (UOB), Official Partners, G.H.Mumm and Grand Seiko, Education Partner Asia Society Hong Kong Centre, Performance Partner 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art, Supporting Organisation Hong Kong Tourism Board and Government Partner Brand HK, alongside vital Supporting and Media partners.

Art Central will return to the Central Harbourfront in 2021, dates will be announced shortly.
