The inaugural edition of Art Central debuts between 14 and 16 March 2015. Art Central is the first satellite fair of international standards to be staged in Hong Kong.

Timed to coincide with Art Basel Hong Kong and the growing popularity of Hong Kong Art week which together attracts more than 65 000 visitors, the creation of Art Central positions the city firmly within the first rank of art destinations.

Co-fair director Maree Di Pasquale says: “The launch of Art Central is hugely exciting. It provides further reason for collectors to come into town during Hong Kong Art Week … the fair will compliment Art Basel by offering collectors and art lovers access to the next generation of talent, alongside some of the most established contemporary galleries from across the world.”

Art Central is launched by Tim Etchells, Sandy Angus and Will Ramsay, the founders of ART HK. Charles Ross, former managing director of ART HK, will oversee Art Central alongside co-directors Eve Share Banghart and Maree Di Pasquale. In combination they deliver a wealth of experience and a thorough understanding of the demands of staging a sophisticated art fair.

Art Central Hong Kong will be staged on the new Central Harbourfront, less than 2 kilometres from Art Basel. Full details of exhibitors and the supporting program will be announced in early 2015.
