About Art Central Hong Kong

Now in its third edition, Art Central is recognised as a place of discovery and a platform for museum quality artworks from more established names to be exhibited alongside cutting-edge works by emerging artists.

Staged within an architect-designed temporary structure, the strong gallery line-up is complemented by a dynamic five-day programme that includes interactive installations, experimental film and performance, engaging panel discussions, as well as some of Hong Kong’s hottest eateries.
