Art Basel Hong Kong 2024 First Impressions

South China Morning Post

Enid Tsui and Mabel Lui of "South China Morning Post" report on Art Basel Hong Kong 2024. The five-day event hosted 242 galleries from 40 countries and attracted international visitors. Following the slump during the Covid years, the report notes, the art fair scene is showing signs of come-back this year, "In 2023, global art sales fell by 4 per cent and the three leading international auction houses saw total sales at their modern and contemporary art evening auctions in Hong Kong drop by 5.3 per cent." Dastan Gallery participated in the 2024 iteration of Art Basel Hong Kong with enormous "sand paintings" and a sculpture by pioneering Iranian modernist, Mohsen Vaziri Moghaddam. Dastan's last attendence was in 2018, "South China Morning Post" informs us.
