Now in its 15th edition, the Show will take place October 4th – 7th, 2019 at the Conrad Hong Kong, and will welcome more than 60 galleries from Asia and the world, including up-and-coming and mid-career artists. The Show kicks off on Friday, October 4th with the exclusive UnionPay Private View and the UnionPay VIP Collectors Preview. General admission opens on Saturday, October 5th and continues until Monday, October 7th.
“From its roots 25 years ago at the Gramercy Hotel in New York, it’s exciting to see the sustained popularity of the hotel art fair around the world as an alternative to large, and imposing convention center fairs – take Felix in Los Angeles just recently and Sydney’s Spring 1883.” remarked Show Director Mark Saunderson, “At the Asia Contemporary Art Show this Fall, a creative presentation in hotel rooms connects art buyer and art gallery for a more intimate art experience. It offers human interaction rather than a solely transactional one, and it allows up-and-coming artists and galleries to directly participate in the art market and to network with today’s new generation of collectors.”
Saunderson continues, “At the Show, it’s our mission to deliver an experience-driven event, to give the possibility of finding something genuinely unexpected in a way temporary white walls do not, and to present visitors a variety of art and artists behind each door. The Show this Fall is pleased to present Jun Zhengda from China who creates fluid and dynamic stainless-steel sculptures which are undeniably enduring and powerful works of art, and South Korean artist Kwak Seung Yong who brings an incomparable illusion and weighted reality in his paintings that feature the traditional Korean hanbok. The Show is also excited to present internationally recognized and legendary artist Roger Dean whose evocative and visionary images created a whole new genre in art, among many other interesting and promising artists from across the globe.”
