It’s only been a few weeks since the beautiful LED Rose Exhibition, and a new set up’s already erected along the Central Harbourfront. This time, it boasts a 10,000 square metre tent and showcases a stunning collection of artworks from over 20 countries. The event runs from 23-26 March in celebration of Hong Kong Art Week, so all you artsy-pants go grab your tickets now!
Anticipated to be one of the most vibrant contemporary attractions in Hong Kong, this event has been under our radar for a while. Thanks to InstameetHK, we were absolutely delighted when we received free tickets through the post a week prior to the opening!
So, what can you expect inside Art Central?
The fair is divided into three zones:
- CENTRAL – collections of artwork from Asia and beyond
- RISE – more recent collections launched in the past six years as well as emerging artists
- PROJECTS – grand installations and displays that challenge the concept of conventional art fairs
So, expect a extensive array of interactive installations, revolutionary new-media and engaging panel discussions all under one roof!
What’s more, branching off from the mid-section of the venue is an outdoor terrace hosting some of the city’s favourite street food vendors, such as Beef & Liberty and many more. There’s also a live DJ on set sending out chilled-out vibes to really set the scene under amongst the soft background chatter. Here, you can take a break from the fair, grab a bite and socialise with a refreshing pint!
All in all, Art Central added an uplifting dimension to Hong Kong’s blossoming art scene, and it has certainly earned its recognition whilst firmly establishing itself as a must-see event in the annual art fair calendar.
