Art Central is an exciting new contemporary art fair in Hong Kong, showcasing the next generation of talent alongside some of the most established contemporary artists and galleries from around the world. Pico is proud to have been appointed as the official contractor for the inaugural Art Central, tasked with delivering over 1,400 linear metres of walling, providing a full range services to the show’s 77 galleries, and delivering an exclusive entrance arch, VIP lounge and restaurant, all designed by an internationally-renowned architect.
The hugely-successful first edition of Art Central took place at the new Central Harbourfront inside a 10,000 sq. m. temporary structure, with its 77 galleries exhibiting work by more than 400 artists. Art Week’s hottest pop-up restaurant The Continental rubbed shoulders with street eats, engaging educational programmes, talks and tours, an exhibition of Hong Kong graffiti art and other ambitious installations. The show welcomed almost 30,000 art collectors, buyers and members of the public from Hong Kong and around the world, adding a fresh new style to Hong Kong Art Week and immediately establishing itself as a must-see event on the annual calendar.
