Hong Kong 2017: South Island Art Day
With a burst of art events all over town, two art fairs mid-way and the newly renovated hub of Hong Kong island to explore, Art World Forum proudly hosted ‘South Island Art Day’ in collaboration with the South Island Cultural District on Thursday 23rd March at Ovolo Southside.
The event, which was open to the public, and paired with non-profit street-art focused organisation, HK Walls, welcomed an array of varying wanderers and perspectives. With short yet dynamic conversations, the turnover of discussions covered significant ground and encouraged a circulation amongst attendees. With an estimated 100 international guests throughout the scheduled four-hour day, discussions piqued interest reflected by questions from members of the audience represented by New World Development Company (Hong Kong), the Economic Development Board (Singapore), and Forbes Magazine.
The day aimed to address factors that are currently trending in the art market, and welcomed experts and specialised guest speakers to share their insight.
