Asia Contemporary Art Show sells HK$26 million of artwork

The success of the 10th edition of the Asia Contemporary Art Show proves there is more to Art Week in Hong Kong than simply Art Basel and Art Central.

The show welcomed more than 10,000 collectors and an estimated HK$26million of sales were made over the fair’s four days.

“We were delighted to have been the first art fair to open during Hong Kong Art Week,” said Director Mark Saunderson. “There was a real buzz during the Langton’s VIP Collectors Preview on Friday, with visitors queuing a few hundred deep at peak hour.”

The Asia Contemporary Art Show is held twice a year in Hong Kong, once in March and once in October.

Visitors to the show, which is held across four floors of the Conrad Hotel, viewed more than 3,000 works presented by more than 80 galleries and artists from Asia and beyond.

Unlike Art Basel and Art Central which rely more on exhibitors, more than 50 artists chatted to collectors and art enthusiasts at the show.

The exhibition showcased both established and emerging artists.
