Fine Art Asia Pavilion at Art Basel Hong Kong 2021
“Traverse: Once Modern”
19 – 23 May
This spring, Fine Art Asia is delighted to present a group exhibition entitled ‘Traverse: Once Modern’, set in the Fine Art Asia Pavilion at Art Basel Hong Kong.
Co-curated by 8 prominent galleries specialising in different aspects of historical art, ‘Traverse: Once Modern’ presents a journey from the distant past to the mid-20th century, creating dialogue with its legacy through the lens of Art Basel. Antiquities, which were once considered contemporary art in their respective periods, through time, have evolved into objects not only of beauty but also of historical value. ‘Traverse: Once Modern’ aims to recontextualise classical art that seamlessly blends in today’s environment, interspersed among the modern and contemporary works at Art Basel.
8 premier galleries will present works at Fine Art Asia Pavilion:
