now that 60% of art hk is owned by the influential artbasel fam, it hasn't only increased the event's significance tenfold, but also crowned hong kong as the region's undisputed contemporary art destination. this new status and the fast-growing number of affluent art collectors residing here, results in more and more showcases that run parallel to art hk's official schedule. in a previous post we talked about invisible forces - projeto rabbit, a massive exhibition of contemporary art from brazil and around the planet that was held in são paulo earlier this year. hong kong's fabrik gallery has collaborated with the people behind the showcase in brazil, and launch today code +55 brazilian art now, an exhibition of works by seven of brazil's leading contemporary artists. on display is a selection of painting, collages, photography, installations and digital art [on through jun 16]. location: 1 harbour road [wanchai].
