David Vetter. Fair Review: ART HK 12: Walking the Line
The fifth edition of the Hong Kong International Art Fair (ART HK 12) took place from 17 to 20 May, comprising 266 galleries from 38 countries. This year, more than 67,000 visitors passed through the doors, a solid increase over the 63,500 people who attended in 2011, and encouraging figures for MCH Swiss Exhibition Ltd., the organizers of Europe’s Art Basel. With MCH’s controlling interest in the event, this was technically the last ART HK: hereafter it will be known as Art Basel Hong Kong, a rebranding the effects of which have yet to be seen.
