Hong Kong 2017: New Ways of Seeing
The Art World Forum Hong Kong debut, ‘New Ways of Seeing’, held at the Liang Yi Museum on Friday 17th March welcomed an estimated 60 international guests from 8 countries including Singapore, Spain, Malaysia, Philippines, USA, and the UK. The proud sponsors of the event included insurance giant and major corporate art patron AXA Art, the bespoke antique furniture and collectibles private museum of Hollywood Road, Liang Yi Museum, and Newby Tea for their niche involvement in the arts and support. The event also welcomed Cobo Social, a leading platform for collectors in Asia, as the exclusive media partner.
The half-day agenda welcomed the expertise of ten art business guest speakers who shared their diverse experience and understanding of the art marketplace while bringing clarity to recent activity within the industry and contributing fresh thoughts on the shifts currently defining the international art market. The range of panels, interviews and our only presentation picked at hot debates, future predictions, emerging platforms, services and ideas. Despite the varying directions that conversations took, they all sought to address the digital paradigm, the global need for collectors and the massification process that the arts have adopted.
