Art Central, calling itself a contemporary art fair with a distinctly Asian twist, includes galleries from 23 cities across greater Asia, with 30 new names never seen in Hong Kong before.

The art fair “includes interactive installations, engaging panel discussions, performance art, tours and Hong Kong’s hottest eateries”, according to the organisers.

Art Central opened on Monday, and continues until Saturday. It is located at the Central Harbourfront, accessible from both Central and Admiralty MTR stations. Tickets can be purchased on the door or in advance through HK Ticketing.
