Art Basel Hong Kong 2019: Kabinett section, with Silverlens Galleries, Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Center
Art Basel Hong Kong's Kabinett sector - which gathers bijou displays inside the booths - is once again full of treasures.
This year, 21 exhibitors present rarely-shown pieces by artists from Asia, Europe, and the Americas, with a strong focus on historical works from the 1930s onwards.
Among them are Mary Corse's textural experiments with darkness and reflection from the 1970s at Pace; incandescent textile works by the late Filipino artist Pacita Abad at Silverlens, and the luminous drawings of Burmese artist Bagyi Aung Soe at Singapore's Gajah Gallery. Pieces by the Dutch master of sculptural illusion Mark Manders at Zeno X, as well as the foggy landscapes by Hong Kong's very own Rosamond Brown at Ben Brown Fine Arts are also among the must-sees.
Discover ten presentations of the sector, from Chinese painting to gems of Spanish Modernism.
