Art Basel Hong Kong has announced the 171 exhibitors from 32 countries and territories that will take part in its 2023 edition, slated to take place March 23–March 25, 2023, with two VIP preview days beginning March 21, at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The 171 exhibitors represents a 24 percent increase from the 130 galleries that showed at the 2022 edition, though it is still significantly smaller than the more than 240 enterprises that took part in the 2019 iteration of the fair.

In addition to announcing the exhibitor list, the fair has also made a major change to its leadership, which itself comes just a week after Art Basel’s newly appointed CEO, Noah Horowitz, took the reins on November 7. While its longtime leader Adeline Ooi will retain her role as Art Basel’s Asia director, she will focus more on “steering the strategic development of Art Basel’s initiatives in Asia,” in particular across the region.

The fair’s new leader will be Angelle Siyang-Le, who will take the title of Art Basel Hong Kong director, a newly created position. For the past 10 years, Siyang-Le has served as Art Basel’s regional head of gallery relations for Asia and head of development for Greater China.

“Together with my colleagues and the broader Art Basel community, I look forward to further strengthening the show’s position as Asia’s premier fair,” Siyang-Le said in a statement. “Likewise, I am excited to work closely with the city’s vibrant cultural community to reinforce Hong Kong’s position as a leading cultural hub.”

The news comes just days after two fairs in mainland China—Art021 and West Bund Art & Design Fair both in Shanghai—shuttered early over Covid concerns. The former fair was closed after one security guard tested positive for Covid, which seems par-for-the-course given China’s well-known Zero-Covid policy.

The fair’s release, however, notes that the 2023 edition will be “the first edition to take place since Hong Kong lifted the mandatory hotel quarantine,” meaning that the fair will have more international participation from galleries, and likewise expects to have a more international attendance than it had at its 2021 and 2022 editions.

As is typical with Art Basel fairs, several of the world’s most blue-chip galleries, both internationally and within Asia specifically, have signed up for the fair. They include the megas—Gagosian, Hauser & Wirth, Pace, and David Zwirner—alongside other top-tier galleries like Massimo De Carlo, Xavier Hufkens, Taka Ishii, David Kordansky Gallery, Pearl Lam Galleries, Lehmann Maupin, LGDR, Kamel Mennour, Victoria Miro, Perrotin, PKM Gallery, Thaddaeus Ropac, and White Cube.

Additionally, a number of galleries will again participate for the first time since the pandemic, like Cardi Gallery, Galerie Max Hetzler, Simon Lee Gallery, Petzel, Timothy Taylor, and Waddington Custot, as well as 21 exhibitors taking part in the Hong Kong edition for the first time, like Monique Meloche, Jan Kaps, Venus Over Manhattan, Denny Dimin Gallery, In Lieu, and SMAC Art Gallery.

Over two-thirds of the exhibitors currently maintain at least one exhibition space in the Asia-Pacific region, with 32 galleries having spaces in Hong Kong. Among the local enterprises that will be represented are 10 Chancery Lane Gallery, de Sarthe, Empty Gallery, and Ora-Ora.

In addition to the main galleries section, the fair will also include Insights, a section comprising 19 galleries focused on presentations of artists based in Asia, and Discoveries, devoted to 22 emerging galleries. Details for the fair’s other sections—Encounters, Kabinett, Film, and Conversations—will be announced at a later date.

Art Basel’s next fair opens later this month in Miami Beach, which will convene the most exhibitors ever, at 283, for its 20th anniversary edition.
