Following the solid sales at ART HK 08 in May of this year, and as international galleries look to expand into new markets, applications have been flooding in for ART HK 09. The Fair will present 120 of the world’s leading galleries from around the world cementing the Fair’s two core strengths of diversity and quality of art presented. The fair will increase its floorspace to accommodate the increased interest from galleries and to accommodate more developed visitor facilities and features. To ensure the calibre of the galleries exhibiting at ART HK 09 an Independent Selection Committee of leading international gallerists has been assembled to review all applications. For further information, please visit

ART HK 09 will build on the strong foundations of this year’s Fair to present an accompanying Education program organised by our education partner the Asia Art Archive, a new section of single-artist and two-artist booths: ART FUTURES open to applications from galleries running for less than 5 years, a community and youth outreach program, and a series of art performances. An extensive VIP program of events, lectures and openings will ensure that visitors can make the most of the glamour, energy and cultural vibrancy of Hong Kong. To register your interest in the VIP program please email

The First Round of applications will be closing 30 September and the Selection Committee will be reviewing applications in mid-October. A final deadline will be beginning of December. To find out more about exhibiting please contact the fair directors:
