Art Central, presented with Lead Partner UOB, will return to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre for its 2023 edition. As a cornerstone event of Hong Kong Art Week, the eighth edition of Art Central will be held from Wednesday to Saturday, 22 to 25 March 2023 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, showcasing the next generation of talent from Asia’s most innovative galleries alongside distinguished artists from around the world.
Art Central 2023 welcomes the participation by 70 diverse and ambitious galleries from around the globe – from Hong Kong to Busan, Johannesburg to New York, Madrid, Tokyo and beyond. With the recent lifting of travel restrictions in Hong Kong, the Fair looks forward to reuniting local and international audiences in a truly multicultural celebration of art.
For this year’s Fair, Art Central is honored to welcome Hong Kong-based independent curator Chris Wan as Curatorial Advisor, to oversee a programme of immersive installation art. Art Central 2023 will once again work with the Fair’s long-standing Education Partner, Asia Society Hong Kong Center, to host a critically acclaimed programme comprising public talks, performances, and media art.
