As well as showcasing an impressive collection of art, the latest edition of Fine Art Asia launched new initiatives to educate the public about antiques and art. The show’s education partners, The Ink Society and Hong Kong Palace Museum, hosted a programme of lectures and seminars by art experts, which were very well received.
Exhibits at Asia’s leading art event, staged last October, spanned 5,000 years of cultural history, from the Neolithic era to the present day, and encompassed both East and West traditions. Pieces ranged from antiques, jewellery, modern and contemporary art and design, to ink art and photography. More than 13,000 visitors attended the fair, including collectors, connoisseurs, celebrities and art lovers.
Exhibitors reported strong results: among notable pieces sold were Tang Dynasty (618-907) pottery dancers and a Qianlong period (1736-1795) green crackle-glazed bottle vase, and several works by Hong Kong artist Hon Chi-Fun.
