Hong Kong Gallery Week 2015
Over 50 galleries are presenting a diverse and international programme as part of the Hong Kong Gallery Week, showcasing the unique way in which the global art world is represented in the city by the diverse mix of galleries, while also introducing speakers, artists and participants from Hong Kong and overseas.
The programme showcases the Hong Kong Art Gallery Association’s efforts in fostering the development of young art professionals in Hong Kong, by hosting talks which introduce art business to students and youngsters, as well as placing a stronger emphasis on community and family activities. The Hong Kong Art Gallery Week Art Internship programme aims to cultivate and nurture an interest and passion in the arts amongst the youth and students of Hong Kong. The range of programmes reinforces that the city’s gallery scene offers something for everybody, with events, talks, tours, performances, workshops and exhibitions, for families, students, arts professionals, collectors, and members of the public interested in discovering Hong Kong’s galleries. Hong Kong Art Gallery Week’s public talks programme covers a range of topics related to Hong Kong as a burgeoning arts hub in the context of the diverse art scene in Asia.
Claudia Albertini, Programme Chair of Hong Kong Art Gallery Association states, ‘This year, the talks programme is expanded in its scope to include more regional and international speakers, as Hong Kong Art Gallery Association aims to help deepen the market knowledge and have more of a dialogue with cultural professionals in the region.’
