Affordable Art Fair

Thought all the art fairs were over? Think again. The Affordable Art Fair is back for the sixth year running, featuring over 115 local and international galleries exhibiting unique artwork that (you guessed it) you can actually afford. Marvel at the large-scale installations, take in some live performance art and browse the best of the city at the Young Talent Hong Kong Exhibition. The best thing about this art fair is that if you see something you like, you may just be able to walk away with it, with works ranging from $1,000 to $100,000.
