Last week marked the much-anticipated Asian debut of the world's premier international art fair, Art Basel. The renowned art fair, already a prominent annual event in its namesake home city in Switzerland as well as Miami, has now branched out to Hong Kong, establishing a dialogue between art collectors, artists, dealers, curators, critics and art lovers from an Asian perspective for the first time.

From May 23-26, 2013 the global art establishment flooded the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) that played host to the first Art Basel event in the city. Attended by over 60,000 people, the fair attracted directors, curators and trustees, as well as patrons from the Tate in London, the Centre Pompidou in Paris and major U.S. museums. Also in attendance were prominent art-world figures, including the Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich and his partner Dasha Zhukova, the American dealer Larry Gagosian, the artists Fernando Botero and Takashi Murakami, as well as established and emerging private collectors from across the world.

Art fever hit the entire city by storm, with a large number of outside events, exhibitions and shows concurrently taking place during what is informally known as Hong Kong Art Week. The ‘Chai Wan Mei: Art & Design Weekend’ featured open studios showcasing the best of the Chai Wan creative community, an important district within the Hong Kong arts scene. The Goethe-Institut Hongkong presented a survey of the city’s uninhabited spaces in a solo exhibition from Hong Kong-based artist João Vasco Paiva entitled ‘Objects Encrypted’. And then there was the widely talked about ‘Mobile M+: Inflation!’ outdoor exhibit (which runs until June 9th, 2013) at the site of the planned M+Museum in the West Kowloon Cultural District, that playfully introduced contemporary art into the public sphere through gigantic inflatable sculptures.

The exciting number of art events across the city comes as a pleasant surprise for a region that has up until recently been noticeably outside of the cultural map, with little audience for contemporary art and a complete absence of major art fairs before 2008. But gone are the days when Hong Kong was referred to as a ''cultural desert''. With Asia now home to more billionaires than North America, the interest in buying art quickly has skyrocketed and China has gradually climbed up the art market ladder, becoming the world's second-largest art market after the US. In recent years, several leading western galleries such as New York’s Gagosian and London’s White Cube have set up outposts in the city's central business district, serving the region’s growing art market. Hong Kong is further planning to pour $2.8 billion into developing the largest cultural project in the city to date, the West Kowloon Cultural District, comprising 17 core arts and cultural venues, including the M+Museum for visual culture, The Park, as well as other major facilities to host and produce world-class arts and cultural events.


Amidst all this cultural renaissance, it was only fitting at this point for Art Basel to reach out to the art-craving buyers of Hong Kong. Taking over from Hong Kong International Art Fair / ART HK /, which began in 2008 as a local yet increasingly successful art fair, Art Basel in Hong Kong retained Magnus Renfrew, the former fair’s director in its promise to become a dynamic cross-cultural exchange and international meeting place for the art world. And it definitely fulfilled this very expectation.

Showcasing the work of over 3,000 artists from Asia and around the globe, Art Basel in Hong Kong compiled an impressive collection of high-quality works from both the East and the West. The fair presented a dynamic selection of 245 leading galleries from 35 countries and territories, 48 of which were showcased in Hong Kong for the first time. Half of the participating galleries came from the Asia-Pacific region, introducing a number of regions that had been previously overlooked and neglected in the art market by international art collectors. From emerging talents to the Modern masters, the fair traced 12 decades of art history across four sectors: Galleries, Insights, Discoveries and Encounters. Displaying museum-caliber paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photography, film, video and digital artworks from the 20th and 21st centuries, the four sectors allowed for a wide-ranging exploration of the many dimensions of Modern and contemporary art.

The ‘Galleries’ sector presented 171 of the world's leading Modern and contemporary art galleries, ranging from Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America and Africa. ‘Insights’ exclusively showcased contextual and thematic projects developed specifically for the Hong Kong show by galleries and artists from the Asia or the Asia-Pacific region. Giving a global platform to emerging contemporary artists from all over the world, the ‘Discoveries’ sector showcased work by the next generation of talent at an early stage in their careers. However, one of the highlights of the fair was without doubt the ‘Encounters’ sector that showcased large-scale sculpture and installation works by leading artists from around the world. Curated by Yuko Hasegawa, an internationally renowned specialist in large-scale pieces and Chief Curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, as well as Curator of the recent Sharjah Biennial 11, ‘Encounters’ offered visitors the chance to see works that transcend the traditional art fair stands presented in prominent locations throughout the exhibition halls. In addition to these, the fair’s ‘Conversations and Salon’ series offered a stimulating program of presentations, lectures and panel discussions by a range of speakers, allowing audiences to deepen their knowledge of artistic practice, the international art world and the art market.

Although gallerists may have noticed a slower pace of purchasing compared to the two Art Basel fairs in the West, at the closing of the fair strong sales were reported across all five days. Melbourne’s ‘Dianne Tanzer Gallery + Projects’ sold out its entire booth by the end of the day on Friday, with the eight pieces by Juan Ford on display selling for a total of $150,000. LA-based gallery Blum & Poe’s booth showcasing Takashi Murakami’s ‘Pom & Me: On the Red Mound of the Dead’ (2013) was particularly popular and sold quickly for $400,000. The fair’s biggest sale however, went to Tina Keng Gallery, which has spaces in Taipei and Beijing, whose large-scale painting 'Chinese Emperor – 1' (2008-2013) by Wang Huaiqing sold for $2.6 million.

Art was by far not the only offering on the menu. As every seasoned Art Basel-goer knows, the show certainly has its fair share of partying options in between all of the art-purchasing. On the eve of the opening day, the ARTSY Dinner at The Asia Society was quite possibly the only place to be. Co-hosted by Dior and luxury silversmiths Georg Jensen, the dinner attracted a diverse mix of people from all over the world, including the likes of Kate Moss. On Thursday night, close to 2,000 people attended the private party held by founder of the K11 Art Foundation, Adrian Cheng and Modern Media’s Thomas Shao at the Hyatt Regency Hong Kong, many of them later moving on to the new restaurant and member’s club Duddell’s for the Audemars Piguet party. Throughout the duration of the show, Absolut Art Bureau collaborated with Hong Kong-based artist Adrian Wong to create ‘Wun Dun’, an installation that transformed the basement of the Fringe Club in central Hong Kong into an art bar featuring nightly performances and serving a range of cocktails designed by the artist. Suffice it to say that Harper's Bazaar’s Art Night at the Four Seasons Hotel managed to merge art and fashion into a spectacle that attracted some of Hong Kong's biggest celebrities and Basel's leading artists.

Providing a vibrant platform for international cultural exchange, Art Basel has significantly strengthened the role Hong Kong that plays as a global financial and commercial capital, noticeably placing it in the art market map among western metropolises. And with the second Art Basel in Hong Kong already scheduled for May 15–18, 2014, it is more than certain that the fair will repeat its cultural and commercial success next year.
