unnamed-6The Hong Kong Art Gallery Association has announced today the highlights of an expanded and exciting programme for the fourth edition of Hong Kong Art Week – Autumn Edition, sponsored by Bank of China (Hong Kong) Private Banking. New highlights include The Gallery Walk for Charity and a two day Art Symposium.

Since its inception in 2012, HKAGA has played a major part in the promotion of art development in Hong Kong, working with gallerists, local art experts, curators and cultural spaces in the city to create Art Week – Autumn Edition, now a fully-fledged art Festival that cements the city’s position as Asia’s global art hub.

Growing on the success of previous years Art Week – Autumn Edition 2016 aims to actively reach out to a wider public with a diverse and more developed programme than ever before. Gallery talks have been replaced by a two day Art Symposium, to be held at Asia Society and supported by the Mandarin Oriental. A major city wide Gallery Walk for Charity will be inaugurated on the 3rdNovember, there will be a new community-wide family art day event will be hosted in Tamar Park, along with Art Treasure Hunts through the city’s art districts, and HKAGA will use the week to launch a dedicated mobile map app that guides users around cultural highlights and galleries in the city.
