Encounters provides visitors with the opportunity to see works that transcend the traditional art fair stands and are present in prominent locations throughout the exhibition halls.
Art Basel announced today the 17 artworks to be presented within the Encounters sector in Hong Kong, dedicated to showing large-scale sculptural installations by leading artists from around the world. Yuko Hasegawa, Chief Curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, and Curator of the Sharjah Biennial 11, curates the sector for the inaugural edition of the Hong Kong show.
Encounters will offer a strong representation of galleries from Hong Kong, exhibited alongside projects by galleries from India, Japan, Korea, Mainland China, Germany, Ireland, Italy, and the United Kingdom.
