A leading player in showcasing Asia’s international arts scene, the Fine Arts Asia exhibition is returning to the city for its 2022 edition between Oct. 5 and 8, with a special media preview on Oct. 4 as a primer.
The fair provides artworks and artefacts from both the East and West, with a focus in museum-grade antiques and jewellery, ink art, photography, in addition to contemporary pieces. Up to nearly 30 galleries will be displaying their collections, including locally based parties as well as exhibitors with ties to London Palm Beach, Tokyo, Tai Pei, and more.
Fine Art Asia 2022 will also debut a bespoke Metaverse gaming experience as part of a special interactive exhibition titled “Fine Art Asia x the Sandbox: Art enters the Metaverse.” The game consists of uniquely designed Sandbox characters that have been inspired by antiques on showcase. The game will be available outside of the art fair and for visitors to continue the fun and their educational foray into art history.
Other art-based academic opportunities programmes at Fine Art Asia 2022 include the lecture and seminars from the fair’s official Education Partners, The Ink Society and the Hong Kong Palace Museum, along with L’ÉCOLE Asia Pacific: School of Jewelry Arts. Local art experts will share their knowledge and encourage discourse amongst art scholars, gallery representatives, as well as art enthusiasts and collectors.
“This year’s edition of Fine Art Asia once again focuses on Hong Kong’s excellent local galleries and leading art institutions,” fair founder and director Andy Hei remarks. “[A]s always, Fine Art Asia will continue to act as a bastion of every branch of the art and antiques market in Hong Kong, and we look forward to welcoming back our loyal overseas exhibitors hopefully in the near future.”
