Young artists shine at Hong Kong art show


With artwork sprawled on queen-sized beds, hung in front of television sets and even placed on toilet counters, Hong Kong’s Asia Contemporary Art Show has an unusual take on what constitutes an art gallery.

Hosted in a luxury hotel, the bi-annual fair caters for emerging artists hoping to break into global markets. Thousands attended the four-day show, which emphasises young and mid-career artists and is the city’s second-largest art fair after the Hong Kong edition of the prestigious Art Basel.

Collectors moved from room to room inside the five-star JW Marriott hotel where more than 70 galleries showcased paintings, sculptures and photography from around the Asia region and the world.

“The informality of the hotel is one of the characters of the art fair,” the show’s director Mark Saunderson told AFP.

“It’s a bit of a journey of discovery from room to room,” he said.Experts say that South-East Asian artwork has a major advantage: its price tag, with Vietnamese, Indonesian and Malaysian pieces popular on the international scene.

With the value of Vietnamese works having increased tenfold over the past 15 years, new artists are seeking more global exposure.

“The most important thing is that young artists like me have a chance to show their works,” Vietnamese artist Dang Thao Ngoc said.AFP
