Hong Kong Spotlight by Art Basel is a showcase of Hong Kong galleries who have participated in Art Basel's Asian show. Organized in collaboration with Fine Art Asia, this unique platform is a united response to support and bring together the city’s arts community during these challenging times. The presentation comprised precisely curated projects, ranging from thematic solo and group exhibitions to art-historical showcases and film. With Hong Kong Spotlight, Art Basel's first physical presentation in 2020, we are delighted to deliver an opportunity for art enthusiasts to come together, experience art, and exchange ideas.

Looking for Wong Kar-Wai (2018-19) is a project that revisits and rethinks about his films and the changing of Hong Kong. His films always show a longing for the passing by situation with people, and are about encounters and loss. It’s a filmic work which tries to document Hong Kong through the films and to link that with the past and present, with the team of Li Zhenhua, Chen Xiao, Shen Xiaomin, and Sampo Sarkola. This program was showned at Louis Koo Cinema, Hong Kong Arts Centre.
