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.

Paul Cocksedge, the acclaimed London-based designer, worked with Swire Properties to create an inventive VIP lounge titled ‘Spectrum’ for Art Basel Hong Kong. With visually intriguing bands of red and blue fabric defining the space, the lounge exuded a calm and welcoming symmetry that reflects Cocksedge’s characteristic lightness of touch and imaginative visual effect.
