With the third edition of Art Basel Hong Kong and the launch of a new satellite fair, March is the busiest month on the city's contemporary art calendar. Here are someof the shows you shouldn't miss: from Encounters at Art Basel. With a new curator–Alexie Glass-Kantor of Artspace in Sydney–at the helm, the selection of large-scale sculptural installations by Joao Vasco Paiva, Xu Longsen, Sterling Ruby and many others will be the talk of the week.
To Yoshitomo Nara's retrospective "Life is Only One" at Asia Society Hong Kong and the new satelite fair Art Central. Launched by ART HK's founders, the new Art Central intrigues with its ambition: more than 75 local and international galleries will showcase emerging and established artists in a 10,000-square-metre purpose-built structure. Sounds like fun.
