Art Central Hong Kong 2021

A cornerstone of Hong Kong Art Week, Art Central has long been a must-visit for collectors and a must-attend for galleries from Hong Kong and abroad. The Fair not only presents work by established artists, but also introduces art lovers to less well-known talents.


The year 2021 marked Art Central’s sixth edition as well as its much-anticipated return to physical form at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre after its absence in 2020. Running from 20 to 23 May, visitors could see hundreds of works presented by galleries from Hong Kong and overseas.

Art Central’s organizers used the latest show as an opportunity to redefine it for a rapidly changing global art market and new kinds of engagement with galleries and art lovers. Among other developments, the sixth edition gave a prominent role to technology and sustainability.

As with five past editions of Art Central, Pico played a vital part in bringing all the show’s complex elements to fruition. Appointed as the show’s official contractor, the team delivered much of its indoor infrastructure, and walling and lighting for all galleries.
