Background

Now in its second annual edition, Art Central features an impressive collection of 100 galleries from 20 countries around the world staged at Hong Kong’s scenic Central Harbourfront. What’s more exciting? Seventy-Five-percent of the galleries this year hail from greater Asia! This year also features new media, digital and performance art at the MEDIA X MUMM exhibition.

In addition to the art, Art Central offers visitors a fun break via food, hosting pop-up Belon, the latest from Black Sheep Restaurant group and street food from Beef & Liberty, Brickhouse and Tri. ‘Cause let’s be honest the food is just as important as the art ;-)
