Affordable Art Fair 2018: Showcasing One Thousand Local and International Artists
Why We Recommend it
The sixth edition of the Affordable Art Fair will exhibit over 115 galleries, showcasing fresh and enticing works by emerging talent, and hosting a number of live art performances and talks.
While Hong Kong now plays host to a number of roaming art fairs, Affordable Art Fair is the only one with a mission to keep prices of works within the HK$1000 to HK$10,000 range.
This edition will showcase around 1000 local and international artists, while also hosting performances that give emerging artists a platform to showcase their works. Shows include a number of large scale installations alongside artist led tours and interactive art education programs.
Another fair highlight is #ForArtsSake Friday, a new charity event hosted to help raise awareness of mental wellbeing and art therapy. This event will see live speed life-drawing and dance performances throughout the evening.
The fair will also release findings from a survey about the challenges of life as an artist in Hong Kong and Singapore, which will detail how artists struggle to find representation in the early stages of their career.
