Marco Polo Hongkong Hotel will once again house the immense Habour Art Fair from 29 March to 1 April 2019. Gathering leading galleries from across Asia, the Harbour Art Fair will transform over 60 hotel rooms on the 12th floor, into a kaleidoscope of modern and contemporary art, showcasing photography, paintings, sculptures, ceramics and more, while also providing an array of ambitious public programmes including art talks, docent tours and exclusive experiences.
This year, the Fair welcomes an impressive roster of both returning and new galleries, all bringing with them a myriad of international art. Among them is Hatch Art Project from Singapore, which focuses its artistic discussion on contemporary issues related to food, fashion and artificial intelligence. AHC Projects from Germany brings architecture-influenced artists, whose works are greatly inspired by geometry, twisted spaces and overlapping collages, challenging the audiences’ perception of the world. In addition, Harbour Art Fair will also feature a selection of acclaimed galleries from South Korea including Bon Gallery, Keumsan Gallery and Chung Jark Gallery.
Local Hong Kong galleries have also prepared a selection of art that expands artistic languages into new territories. Karen Wong Ceramics and Art, making its first debut at the Fair, will showcase a spectrum of ceramics from traditional ware to pioneering attempts. Malaysian artist Chao Harn Kaehas tactfully combines elements of functionality, sculpture, humans and animals, striking an impressive balance between ceramic traditions and recent innovations. His works include detailed sculptures of human heads with pig ears, as well as traditional teapots shaped like humans.
Guests staying at the hotel from 30 March to 1 April 2019 will be offered two complimentary admission tickets per room to the Harbour Art Fair, presenting them with a unique travel experience. Tickets are on a first-come first-served basis. For more details, please visit the hotel website at marcopolohotels.com.
