ART HK 11 or Hong Kong Art Fair 2011 is set to take place on May 26 to 29, 2011 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center and who else to provide quality social media promotional strategies but PRDA or Prosperity Research Digital Agency, one of Hong Kong’s most established social media companies. With more than 250 successful campaigns under its belt in just a span of 5 years, PRDA’s involvement in this year’s ART HK 11 is definitely seen as a game changer — PRDA’s social media magic will not only draw more visitors to the fair but will increase brand recall and buzz for the much-awaited Hong Kong Art Fair 2011.
“We’re excited to be a part of ART HK 11. We think it’s an event that does not only showcase modern and contemporary arts but more importantly, gives highlight to the passion, sheer talent and skill of artists – from the modern masters to promising contemporary artists,” said Douglas White, head of PRDA.
And showcase it does! According to the organizers, ART HK 11 will present works from modern masters such as Picasso to important contemporary artists such as Takashi Murakami and Damien Hirst. Because of this, the ART HK event, which is organized by Asian Art Fairs Ltd, is truly one of the most anticipated in the international arts calendar.
From May 26 to 29, the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center will be home to 260 galleries from 38 countries around the world. The price tags of the paintings will range from HK $8,000 to as much as HK $80 Million.
Among the activities during the fair are the “Art Futures” section (where visitors can find works of emerging artists) and the “Asia One” section (where visitors can find solo exhibitions by Asian artists).
