      The Artrip|2019 Art Basel Interactive Guided Tour

      Art Basel is one of the most esteemed art fairs in the world and is the occasion where art lovers from all over the world meet and gather. The fair has come to its 7th year in Hong Kong with more than 240 galleries from 36 countries and regions. More than half of the galleries come from Asia Pacific, which help to develop a clear image of the regional art scene.  Hong Kong is known for its vibrant art industry, but what sets Art Basel apart is its cross-disciplinary approach to artworks, from fine arts to history, from technology to politics --- you will always find something that triggers your mind. The fair is divided into several sections, from installation to oil paintings, from experimental art to more classical creations, making it one of the most diverse, representative and all-round art fairs in the world. Having said that, have you thought about your itinerary at the fair? Do you know which pieces are the highlights and the stories behind? The Artrip team will help you with all that! During our carefully curated 90-mins guided tour, our guide with art history background will introduce the background of Art Basel and contemporary art. Then, we will walk through 7-8 representative galleries to explore art through new perspectives. Apart from that, we will also check out 4-6 "encounters", which are the independent, large-scale installations positioned among galleries stands to add more avant-garde and interactive elements to the fair. Of course, this is not an art history class! It will be interactive, fun and engaging. For those of you who have experience with contemporary art, you are more than welcome to raise points to discuss and by the end of the tour, we are sure that you will meet some like-minded friends. Register now for our 2019 Art Basel interactive guided tour! We hope to see you soon and wish you a fruitful art month! *Please note that these events may be filmed and photographed for internal and commercial purposes. * This tour does not include tickets to Art Basel.
