The fair's draw
The Hong Kong International Art Fair may only have been going since 2008 but it has already firmly put the city on the global arts’ agenda with its impressive line-up of international and regional galleries, including Barbara Gladstone, Greenberg Van Doren Gallery and Seoul’s Kukje Gallery, and a plethora of smaller outfits fighting to get in – 260 galleries out of 500 applicants were accepted this year. Renfrew has been a driving force behind its success, convincing big-time buyers to attend the fair in large numbers.
