Just came back from ARTHK10, which is Hong Kong’s new annual art fair that promises to showcase artists and galleries, and connect with collectors around the world.
ArtInfo reports from the scene of yesterday’s VIP showings and continues to put up the open question of whether Hong Kong can become the art fair city center-point for all of Asia. (Via @rpeckham.)
While I was generally unimpressed by the art at ARTHK10 (though, of course, there were notable exceptions), I would posit the question in another way: Where else in Asia do you have a city that’s easy to get in and out of (for people AND their money), and one that’s safe and cushy?
And don’t say Singapore.
