Record Attendance at
Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong


The Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong second edition (21 – 23 March 2014) was bigger, brighter and more fun. The Fair welcomed over 29,000 visitors, becoming the best-attended Affordable Art Fair globally in the company’s 15 year history. Thousands of artworks on display from over 120 local and international galleries coupled with exciting new features and the fun, welcoming atmosphere, it translated to nearly HKD $39 million in art sales.

Armed with its promise to demystify the world of art, the three-day Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong 2014 featured thousands of paintings, prints, sculpture and photography all under one roof, all between a price point of HK$1,000 and HK$100,000. With something for every taste, budget and collection big or small, the Fair attracted both seasoned collectors looking to test their eye as well as many new and aspiring collectors. The Fair once again found a vibrant developing art market in Hong Kong, bringing artworks from all over the world, with 60% of the participating galleries from Asia including 35 from Hong Kong.

The second edition of the Young Talent Hong Kong exhibited over 30 pieces and provided young and emerging local artists a platform in which to show their creative artworks and was hugely successful with half of the artworks sold. A specially curated exhibition of artworks on the Under HK$10,000 Wall showcasing a diverse range of accessible artworks from around 40 art galleries was also very well received.

The Fair featured an exciting array of arty activities, such as artist special projects, Sol Passion’s Dare to DJ Workshop, Children’s Art Studio supported by Sunkids and Faber Castell, the Creative Workshop by Starlit Art Space and Gallery Speed Dating. Visitors also enjoyed dynamic panel discussions with leading young artists, collectors and experts from the local Hong Kong art scene, gaining insight on how to navigate their way through the burgeoning art market.

“The Second Fair in Hong Kong saw unprecedented success in the company’s history, it was a great success both for galleries and their artists, and our local Hong Kong visitors - in fact, this has been our best attended Fair ever, over-taking the record of 25,000 visitors set by our flagship fair in Battersea London! This is the best gift for us as we celebrate our 15th anniversary and 100th Fair this year! We would like to thank DBS Bank (Hong Kong) our lead sponsor for helping us continue to grow in Asia.” commented Will Ramsay, founder of Affordable Art Fair.

If the Affordable Art is in your neighborhood you should plan on visiting.
