This was the year that Art Basel Hong Kong - and Hong Kong’s Art Week as a whole - established itself as a truly world class event. Perhaps not quite at the status of Art Basel Miami yet, this year’s event in Hong Kong was nonetheless a fantastic outing and it wasn’t just because of the art. Like Miami, Hong Kong’s draw is the potent mix of art, music, fashion and money.

This year, 233 galleries from around the world took part and showcased works from an extensive list of artists including notable and familiar names like Takashi Murakami, Tracy Emin, George Condo, Keith Haring, Chris Ofili, Neo Rauch, Yayoi Kusama, Barbara Kruger, Anselm Kiefer and many, many more. Art Basel Hong Kong was also big for regional and local art; contemporary Chinese art was a big hit with several notable pieces, including works by Zhan Wang and Xu Zhen, selling in the first couple of days. Local Hong Kong artists also got a chance to shine; artist João Vasco Paiva took part in the Encounters section, while local photographer Trevor Yeung had his own show at Blindspot Gallery.

This year’s event showed what Art Basel Hong Kong should be - an international event drawing the best artists and galleries from around the region and further abroad. If you weren’t able to make it yourself, check out scenes from this year’s Art Basel Hong Kong above.
