Asia Society Hong Kong brings our global 'Art for Breakfast' Series to the city during Hong Kong's international Arts Month. Members are welcomed to our JC hall for a light breakfast and conversations with new perspectives on the art market.
After a year of turbulence and despite the general depression of the global economy, topics of Greater China and Asia-Pacific's art market are still rapidly expanding. As we watch the region overtake the US to become the largest market share of public auction sales, Christie's headline Non-Fungible Token (NFT) art piece selling for a record-breaking $69 Million USD to a Singaporean blockchain entrepreneur, and a record high of $12.4 Billion USD for online art sales. It's about time to re-engage with innovative speakers and look to the future.
Join a focused live conversation with curators, cultural heads and gallerists on the major shifts in Hong Kong's commercial spaces and positioning in recent years, and the growing number of local artists. We talk with the directors of leading Hong Kong galleries Jeannie Wu of HART, Jonny Davies of Flowers Gallery and Charles Fong of Rossi&Rossi — moderated by Bertha Chan, Artist and Founder of Drastic Social.
