Last week M Contemporary took part in the inaugural Art Central fair during Hong Kong Art Weekend. The satellite fair welcomed almost 30,000 local and international art collectors, buyers and art lovers, quickly establishing itself as the must-see fresh event amongst the usual draw cards.
Art Central took place at the new Central Harbourfront in a 10,000 square metre architecturally designed temporary structure with 77 galleries exhibiting work by more than 400 artists. With Art Week’s hottest pop-up restaurant The Continental along with street eats, an engaging educational program of talks and tours, Hong Kong graffiti art and ambitious installations, it proved to be an important and relevant addition to Hong Kong’s booming art scene.
Our carefully selected group of artists included both established and emerging, Australian and international artists, allowing us to exhibit a range of works that reflected our ethos as a gallery. Artists included were Lynne Roberts-Goodwin (AUS), Simone Rosenbauer (Germany/AUS), Jacqueline Ball (AUS), Garth Knight (AUS), Jaanika Peerna (Estonia/US), Hannah Quinlivan (AUS), Sophie Penkethman-Young (AUS), Alex Karaconji (AUS) and CJ Taylor (AUS).
