Next week sees the opening of the third Asia Contemporary Art Show at the JW Marriott hotel. Taking over four floors, it promises to be, ‘the largest and most diverse art fair in Hong Kong this fall.’ Now, while some may argue there aren’t many (if any) other art fairs this fall to contend with, we think it’s definitely worth a look to see both local and international artists in an unusual setting.

Featuring 72 galleries from 15 countries, one of the great features of the fair is the opportunity to meet many of the artists in person. ‘I love having the chance to explain the inspiration behind my works, what drives me to paint, and what prompts the evolution of my art,’ says French artist Pauline Gagnon, represented by Asian Art de Vivre.

In a rather lucrative move by the organisers, the show has been set to coincide with the China ‘Golden Week’ holidays, hoping to attract many mainland collectors to the exhibition.

If you’re more of an enthusiast than a collector, don’t be put off. With a variety of medias ranging from paint, sculpture and photography, there’ll be more than enough to keep you busy even if you’re not investing this time.

The show opens with an exclusive invitation-only VIP Collectors Preview on Thursday 3rd October, followed by a VIP Art Night on the 4th. The show itself runs from 4th to 6th October, VIP tickets are HK$240 per person, with standard tickets $150, which admits two if purchased online and one if purchased on the door. VIPs will have access to the VIP lounge on the 30th floor, while all guests are invited to enjoy complimentary refreshments in the Art Futures Lounge, also on the 30th floor.

Tickets are available through Asia Contemporary Art and HK Ticketing.
