Before Art Basel there was ART HK: Art Radar fair coverage 2011 to 2013

As we gear up to send our reporters into the inaugural Art Basel Hong Kong, we look back on what came before.

In 2011, Art Basel bought a sixty percent share in homegrown art fair ART HK, which had, since being founded in 2007, grown to become the biggest fair of its kind in the Asia region. Head into our archives to take a look at our coverage of past editions of this local fair and its transformation under the Art Basel banner.
