Art Basel shifts Hong Kong show dates from March to May 2022

Art Basel today postponed its Hong Kong show, which was scheduled to take place in March 2022, to May 2022 in response to the ongoing impact of the pandemic situation in Hong Kong. Featuring 137 leading galleries from 28 countries and territories, the2022 edition of Art Basel Hong Kong will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) from May 27 to May 29, 2022, with preview days on May 25 and May 26, 2022.

The decision to move to the planned contingency dates in May was taken in close consultation with Art Basel’s gallerists, collectors, and partners, in response to the sudden increase in cases in Hong Kong during the last couple of days and to give exhibitors and partners the ability to plan ahead. By taking this decision early, our goal is to ensure that we will be able to welcome the broadest possible community of art supporters and members of the public at HKCEC, in addition to the international audience that will be joining us virtually, while protecting the health and safety of everyone concerned.

Adeline Ooi, Director Asia, Art Basel said: ‘Given the current government guidelines in Hong Kong, it has become clear that moving the fair to May is the right decision. We had anticipated this potential scenario in our planning process, and very much look forward to hosting gallerists, collectors, and art lovers at the HKCEC at that time.’

The next edition of Art Basel’s Online Viewing Rooms ‘OVR: 2021’ will be on view from February 9 to 12, featuring 59 galleries from 21 countries and territories, exclusively featuring works created in 2021, reflecting artistic production over the past year. Once again, participating galleries will present tightly curated solo or group exhibitions, showing up to eight works simultaneously.

The Online Viewing Rooms will be available via the Art Basel website under artbasel.com/ovr, as well as on the Art Basel App for the most mobile-friendly experience.
