Having moved to Hong Kong just a little more than 3 months ago, I haven’t gotten to know the scene as intimately as I did during my 4 years in Beijing. With new projects like the West Kowloon Cultural District which would put Hong Kong on the international art map as Asia’s authority on art and the growth of small independent galleries, there seems to be great support for emerging local talent and platforms for increased interaction with international artists to push boundaries.

Here are my picks on this year’s Art HK 2011 from some of my favourite Beijing galleries.

See you at Vernissage!
