Art Basel Hong Kong

Art Basel in 2023 marks the return of Swire Properties as Host Partner, as the fair welcomes the international art world back to Hong Kong with a robust program. An artistic installation entitled "Chromatic Reflections", created by international architects 10 Design for the Swire Properties VIP Lounge at Art Basel, will celebrate Swire Properties' five decades of creative placemaking and features our original 50th anniversary Art NFT Collection. The Lounge will host the revival of our live Dialogues Series; making its first appearance since 2019. Excitingly, the Alexie Glass-Kantor-curated 2023 Art Basel Encounters sector sees Gravity, an installation piece by Los Angeles-based conceptual artist Awol Erizku, premiere at Pacific Place; marking the sector's first foray into the public realm outside the fair. Additional highlights for Swire Properties Arts Month include the debut of “Urban Rocks” at ArtisTree, Taikoo Place, a contemporary art exhibition featuring a new series of sculptural works by Hong Kong-based French artist Polo Bourieau. 


Swire Properties VIP Lounge 2023

"Chromatic Reflections" by 10 Design

Inspired by Swire Properties’ rich history and the vibrant colours of the 50th Anniversary and Art NFT Collection, international architecture firm 10 Design has designed the Swire Properties VIP Lounge ‘Chromatic Reflections’ for Art Basel Hong Kong 2023.

The design interprets evolution as collection of sequential moments defined by the causative relationship between Reflection, Perspective and Transformation.

The installation captures these moments in a rhythmic field of prismatic totems portraying a history of growth and progress in a celebration of light and colour.

Luminous pillars of coloured glass and mirror project gradient hues of light from red to blue, honouring the Swire Properties’ brand heritage and the creative spirit and influence in art, culture and placemaking.

Swire Properties Dialogue Series

We at Swire Properties are excited to present the Dialogue Series at Art Basel Hong Kong as part of our mission to build meaningful connections between communities. This series of live talks provides a unique platform for culture-makers, artists, and curators to explore how digital art is shaping our future; how contemporary art can be used as a tool for reinterpreting history; and the relationship between art and architecture. We hope these conversations will inspire new ideas that bring people together in an engaging way!
