The city’s biggest art fair
Undeniably Hong Kong’s biggest annual art event, Art Basel returns on March 29 for its sixth edition and three-day takeover of Hong Kong Convention Center featuring masterpieces and contemporary artworks from 249 leading international galleries. People from all walks of life from first-time visitors to A-List celebrities – be on the lookout for regulars like Leonardo diCaprio or David Beckham – converge to Wan Chai to make a turn at Art Basel to admire and discover weird and wonderful works and everything in between. While it’s literally impossible to check out every piece of artwork, the fair is never boring.
Previous years visitors have witnessed rare Picasso’s paintings, a giant sculpture of baby with pixelated genitals and even dead dictators in a glass casket. You never know what to expect in the next corner
