Art Basel Hong Kong

Swire Properties has been sponsoring Art Basel Hong Kong since the show’s 2013 inaugural event. This iconic contemporary global art show is an important complement to the annual Hong Kong Art Month, when we bring internationally-inspired art and performance and original events to the public across the city; building on Swire Properties’ belief that art should be for everyone. The Art Basel programmes included the annual Swire Properties Dialogue Series, stimulating new ideas about art, architecture and design, with the world’s most distinguished influencers and leading artists.

British architect Hugh Dutton conceived "The Floating Ribbon" for Swire Properties’ Lounge at Art Basel Hong Kong 2016. Inspired by his groundbreaking Climate Ribbon™ at Brickell City Centre in Miami, Florida, Dutton’s structure echoed Swire Properties’ commitment to environmental sustainability. The floating ribbon of translucent fabric, stretched on a lightweight frame is in a figure of eight, a symbol of infinity and continuity.
