SCENES FROM ART HK 2011
by Barbara Pollack
Cultural historians, mark your calendars. 2011 was the year that Art HK
, May 26-29, 2011, became a stop on the global art tour to rival the Venice Biennale
and Art 42 Basel
. With 260 participating galleries (up from 150 in 2010) and attendance of over 63,000, Art HK has now far outstripped and outsold SH Contemporary
, the Shanghai fair that takes place each September, Art Singapore
, which took place in October, and two more local art fairs in Beijing.
