Art HK 2012

by Barbara Pollack

Now in its fifth edition, Art HK, May 17-20, 2012, with 260 galleries from 38 countries, is better than ever, transforming Hong Kong overnight from a sleepy backwater of contemporary art into Asia’s art capital. It will never compete with a city like Beijing that, at last count, had tens of thousands of artists, a major art school and over 300 galleries. But Hong Kong, due to its colonialist history, is a very comfortable place for foreigners to spend money, and that’s exactly what is making Art HK such a success.
