In its fifth year, Hong Kong Art Week (HK Art Week) takes on the theme “Artropolis”, bringing a vibrant 12-day festival to the city from 15 – 26 November. It is a celebration of the essential role that Hong Kong’s artists, galleries and art community play in raising the cultural heartbeat of this unique city and global art scene hub.

Organised by the Hong Kong Art Gallery Association (HKAGA), the HK Art Week 2017 programme is an unmissable fixture on the calendars of art aficionados and newfound art audiences alike. With over 50 HKAGA member galleries participating, “Artropolis”, whose inspiration comes from the vigour and vibrancy of art that contributes to the city’s fabric, boasts an expansive and exciting city-wide programme, from symposiums to family art days, going far beyond the gallery walls and showcasing Hong Kong cultural life through exhibitions, performances, charity art walk, activities and talks. HK Art Week 2017 is made possible with the support of Bank of China (Hong Kong) Private Banking.
