Welcome to the annual trip of the main and best art fair of the world: Art Basel in each declination from Hong Kong, to Basel, to Miami and …
The 2022 edition of Art Basel Hong Kong will feature a strong line-up of 137 leading galleries from Hong Kong, Asia, and overseas (104 more than last year), despite continuing pandemic-related challenges and Hong Kong travel and quarantine restrictions.
The show welcomes 16 newcomers, including Galería Cayón from Madrid, Lucie Chang Fine Arts and Mine Project from Hong Kong, Mizoe Art Gallery with spaces in Tokyo and Fukuoka, rin art association with spaces in Takasaki, Gallery Vazieux from Paris, Misako & Rosen with spaces in Tokyo and Brussels, Jason Haam from Seoul, Vin Gallery from Ho Chi Minh City, Galerie Forsblom from Helsinki, Catinca Tabacaru from Bucharest, Galerie Mitterrand from Paris, Jahn und Jahn from Munich, Jan Kaps from Cologne, Maia Contemporary from Mexico City, and Kendall Koppe from Glasgow.
Given ongoing international travel restrictions, Art Basel will again offer galleries the opportunity to participate with a satellite booth across all sectors of the fair. First introduced in 2021, satellite booths allow exhibitors unable to travel to Hong Kong the opportunity to present their own focused, curated exhibition staffed by a local representative appointed by Art Basel.
This year, 82 galleries will participate with a satellite booth, including long-time exhibitors at the Hong Kong show such as Esther Schipper from Berlin; Yumiko Chiba Associates from Tokyo; 47 Canal from New York; Carlos/Ishikawa from London; Gladstone Gallery with exhibition spaces in Brussels, Rome, New York, and Los Angeles; Kukje Gallery with spaces in Seoul and Busan; and Hive Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing. International galleries Meyer Riegger with spaces in Berlin and Karlsruhe and Sies + Höke from Düsseldorf will participate with a joint satellite booth.
