The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre will be a meeting point for representatives of luxury galleries, artists, collectors and all those who have a passion for art. The centre is situated in a prime location by the water right near Victoria Harbour, close to the lively Central District. The luxury building dates back to 1988 and is a venue where the largest and most prestigious world trade fairs and exhibitions are held.   

Art Basel – luxury art from all over the world

Art Basel has been held in Hong Kong every year since 2013 when it first replaced ART HK, the art trade fair in Hong Kong which was held here since 2008.

This luxury art event is an opportunity to see a wide range of art from all over the world under one roof – photographs, paintings, drawings, statues and films. It is also a place where import and export of art is not subject to any tax.
