Accessible Art in Fun Atmosphere
Is original art work only for the super-rich? One of Hong Kong’s most popular art expos goes out of its way to show this is not so. The Affordable Art Fair, staging its ninth Hong Kong edition in August, was established precisely to make buying art more accessible.
The atmosphere at the HKCEC is relaxed and friendly, putting visitors at ease. Here they can talk freely with gallery owners, curators and, in many cases, the artists themselves. On display are thousands of original contemporary artworks priced between HK$1,000 and HK$100,000, showcased by handpicked galleries from Hong Kong and overseas.
Visitors can join workshops and tours throughout the fair, while 10am - 12 noon on Saturday and Sunday of the fair are designated “Family Morning”. What a wonderful way to introduce youngsters to the art world and help them develop their artistic tastes!
