As soon as Art Central opened its doors to the public on Thursday afternoon, people started to stream in.

Clusters of pamphlet-clutching students, elegantly dressed enthusiasts and collectors soon filled the cavernous 8,900-square-metre hall at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, meandering between artworks, sometimes pausing, often photographing, eager to absorb the contemporary art on show.

This year’s edition of the fair – an Asian-art focused cornerstone of Hong Kong’s art week that complements Art Basel’s bigger, more blue-chip offerings – has assembled 52 galleries, 41 of which are Hong Kong-based. It is the highest proportion of spaces from the city since the fair began in 2015.
