Back for its fourth year, ART HK 11 – Hong Kong International Art Fair will take place from 26-29 May 2011 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. Sponsored by Deutsche Bank, ART HK 11 announces an outstanding exhibitor line-up that confirms the Fair’s place as Asia’s premier art fair, and firmly establishes ART HK 11 amongst the world’s top art fairs. As part of its development and commitment to its role as the region’s art hub, ART HK 11 is delighted to introduce ASIA ONE, a new section of the fair showcasing work by Asian artists.

This year, ART HK will welcome over 161 galleries from 30 countries in its main section. The strength of Western galleries represented at the Fair is world class, with the return of galleries from across Europe and the USA including Marianne Boesky Gallery, Leo Castelli Gallery, James Cohan Gallery, Gagosian Gallery, Greenberg Van Doren Gallery, Hauser & Wirth, Lehmann Maupin, Galerie Lelong, Lisson Gallery, Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, Sperone Westwater and White Cube.

New additions include Nature Morte (New Delhi), PKM Gallery (Seoul), Anna Schwartz Gallery (Melbourne) and Vitamin Creative Space (Guangzhou).

This year, ART HK is introducing a new gallery feature section to the Fair. Entitled, ASIA ONE, the section is dedicated to galleries in Asia who will exhibit a solo presentation by an artist of Asian origin. The aim of ASIA ONE is to present Asian artists and their galleries with an international platform and provide a unique opportunity for visitors to experience a diverse and current view of the Asian art scene and will include galleries and artists from Turkey, the Middle East, the Indian sub-continent, Australia and New Zealand in addition to North, East and South East Asia.

“We are delighted to welcome such a high calibre of galleries from around the world to ART HK 11″ explains Magnus Renfrew, Fair Director. “The new section of ASIA ONE will provide an additional dedicated platform showcasing the vibrant and exciting developments in art from Asia, alongside the Fair’s selection of the best galleries from across the world.”

ART HK 11 also sees the development of the ART FUTURES section, showcasing work by emerging artists (under the age of 35) represented by galleries from around the globe that are less than five years old. The ART FUTURES prize is awarded to one artist featured in the section by an expert panel of judges to include Lars Nittve, Executive Director of the West Kowloon Cultural District’s M+, and Hans Ulrich Obrist, Co-Director of Exhibitions & Programs and Director of International Projects at the Serpentine Gallery. The ART FUTURES Prize 2010 was awarded to Shahzia Sikander for her solo presentation at Pilar Corrias Gallery. This year the Prize will be USD25,000.

Since its 2008 inception, ART HK has become a key fixture on the international art calendar, attracting a mix of international galleries, collectors, curators and museum directors. ART HK 10 welcomed 46,115 visitors, up 65% on 2009.
