It’s the week of Art Basel Hong Kong! That means fairs, gallery shows, museum exhibitions, and plenty of events – all taking place here in Hong Kong. We are here to guide you through the must-see and be-seen-at spots around town. All week-long we’ll bring you “Insider Tips” from those in-the-know on what to see, do, eat, and drink. Next up, Wanderlister‘s JJ Acuna.
Ping Pong 129, Little Bao, Carbone, La Vache!, Elephant Grounds, The Fat Pig by Tom Aitkens, and Ho Lee Fook.
I love visiting Asia Society in the Admiralty District. The architecture of Tod Williams & Billie Tsien within Hong Kong’s lush green hillside, and the inclusion of heritage military structure within the site is just amazing. The exhibition spaces and rooftop garden above are superb ways to discover art while gazing at the city.
Don’t miss the M+ Sigg Collection previewing at the Artistree space. The collection gives a good cross section of various contemporary Chinese art movements within the 20th-century. It’s basically a preview of the M+ permanent collection when the museum opens in a few years.
Skip the hotel massage and get a good Chinese foot reflexology massage while in town. The concierge in your hotel should know of a couple worth visiting. There’s a few good practitioners all over the city waiting to ease your foot pains, and perfect for the Art Basel-fatigue.
