The show's six exhibition sectors are designed to present an exceptional selection of works, including museum-quality pieces by proven masters and new artworks by emerging artists. Additional exhibitions and events, timed to coincide with Art Basel's Hong Kong debut, will take place across the city’s thriving gallery scene and in its growing array of cultural institutions.
As in last year, Silverlens has a packed booth at the fair and will be presenting works from the following artists. Not everything will be installed all at once, with rehangs occurring at the end of every day, to encourage guests to come back repeatedly.
