Art HK announces 2012 exhibitors - Art Collector

6 February 2012 | Thirteen galleries from Australia and New Zealand will participate in Art HK12, the Hong Kong International Art Fair, which runs in May this year.

Gallery Barry Keldoulis (Sydney), Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery (Sydney), Anna Schwartz Gallery (Melbourne/Sydney) and Starkwhite (Auckland) have been accepted into the main section of the fair.

Tolarno Galleries from Melbourne is in the Asia One section, along with Nellie Castan Gallery (Melbourne), Tristian Koenig (Melbourne), Damien Minton Gallery (Sydney), Tim Olsen Gallery (Sydney), Sullivan+Strumpf Fine Art (Sydney), Ryan Renshaw Gallery (Melbourne) and Neon Parc (Melbourne).

Melbourne’s Anna Pappas Gallery (Melbourne) has been accepted into the Art Futures section for young galleries.

In total 264 galleries will exhibit at Art HK12, with 53 per cent from Asia (which the fair defines as including mainland Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Iran, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates).

The 2012 edition of the fair will be the first held under new ownership. Last year the fair was acquired by the owners of Art Basel and Art Basel Miami Beach, prompting speculation about the future direction of Art HK. The Hong Kong fair has grown considerably since its inception in 2008, last year attracting 63,000 visitors.
