17:21The art will conquer Asia
Art Basel is pleased to announce that MCH Swiss Exhibition (Basel) Ltd. – a MCH Group company, and the organizer of Art Basel and Art Basel Miami Beach – has signed a purchase agreement with Asian Art Fairs Ltd, the owners of ART HK – Hong Kong International Art Fair. As of July 1, 2011, MCH Group will take a majority ownership stake in Asian Art Fairs Ltd.
The mid-term goal is to convert ART HK to the Art Basel brand as the third platform for this leading international art show. The 2012 edition will remain under the show's current ART HK name, with Magnus Renfrew remaining as its director, and will take place in late-May. Further details about the 2012 show and the future editions under the Art Basel brand will be communicated as they are decided.
Art Basel looks forward to engaging even more intensely and continuously with galleries, collectors and institutions on four continents - in Europe at Art Basel, in North America and Latin America at Art Basel Miami Beach, and in Asia with the future Art Basel show sited in Hong Kong.
Art Basel Miami Beach will celebrate its 10th edition in December 2011. The show made its debut in December 2002 and was quickly named as the most important art show in the Americas. As the sister event of Art Basel, Art Basel Miami Beach combines an international selection of more than 250 leading galleries with an exciting program of special exhibitions and events.
