Event Watch: Osage Gallery Pop-Up Art Market (Hong Kong)

Pop-Up Art Market Celebrates Closing Of “Market Force” Exhibition

Marking the closing of their exhibition, “Market Force: Whither Contemporary Art?”, Hong Kong’s Osage Gallery (Jing Daily interview) will hold an interesting pop-up Art Market on August 17-18. Adapting the style of the “night market” so ubiquitous throughout East and Southeast Asia, the pop-up will highlight more than 30 young artists in the gallery’s Kwun Tong space — up-and-comers as well as current students, all hand-picked by the foundation. Adding an extra layer of interactivity to the “market,” artists will be there to perform, trade, and mingle with guests.

Operating spaces in Hong Kong and offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Singapore, the Osage Gallery has established itself as a major interdisciplinary platform for exhibiting and promoting the field of Asian and international contemporary arts. Regularly exhibiting work by artists from Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand as well as international artists of Asian descent, Osage looks to explore the cultural and artistic relationships between different regions of Asia as well as Asia’s connection to the rest of the world.
