Art Central, the fair which has run concurrent to Art Basel in Hong Kong (ABHK) since 2014, has announced that it will move its 2021 edition (22-26 March) from temporary tents along the Central Harbourfront to within the same premises as ABHK, the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre (HKCEC).
Both fairs announced the cancellation of their March 2020 editions in February, as the regional and global impact of the Covid-19 pandemic became apparent.
“These are unprecedented times, in which it is particularly important that the art world is collaborating and supporting each other," says an Art Basel spokesperson of the shared premises.
