Celebrating the fifth edition of the Film sector in Hong Kong, Art Basel will present an ambitious program of 59 film and video works. Multi-media artist and film producer Li Zhenhua, who has been curating the sector since its inception, has brought together a premier selection of film and video works inspired by the current socio-political climate, presented by galleries participating in the fair.
As part of the Film program, Art Basel is also collaborating with Videotage, a nonprofit organization from Hong Kong specializing in video and new media, to present video works by Nam June Paik as well as by artists from Hong Kong and Mainland China influenced by Paik’s work. Art Basel, whose Lead Partner is UBS, takes place at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) from Thursday, March 29 to Saturday, March 31, 2018.
