In light of the cancellation of the March art week, Art Basel Hong Kong, and Art Central, UNSCHEDULED
strives to re-energise Hong Kong’s art scene. Neither a traditional art fair, nor a museum exhibition, UNSCHEDULED
is a platform for selling and networking that will present solo exhibitions from HKAGA
gallery members, with a focus on modern and contemporary art that has a connection to Asia. Upholding Hong Kong’s unique place as the art centre in Asia, UNSCHEDULED
’s scope is rooted in a commitment to creativity emerging from the continent.

The exhibition will take place in the heritage-listed Duplex Studio in the Police Headquarters Block at Tai Kwun
. A rigid, but free-flowing floorplan will be adopted in place of traditional art fair booth to create a decentralised and inclusive framework for the showcase.
The participating galleries are selected by an independent selection team comprised of established and internationally respected Hong Kong-based curators and artists, including Ying Kwok and Sara Wong. The organising committee is spearheaded by Willem Molesworth (de Sarthe) and Fabio Rossi (Rossi & Rossi) as HKAGA board members.
