UPDATE (March 19, 2020): Earlier this week, Art Basel Hong Kong announced the launch of its first-ever Online Viewing Rooms with works featured by Simon Lee Gallery. In addition to the current lineup, Gagosian will also be participating as part of its ongoing expansion of digital sales initiatives.

The art gallery will unveil works by Takashi Murakami, Georg Baselitz, Jennifer Guidi, Jia Aili, Tom Wesselmann and more on the newly redesigned “Fairs” section of its website. Prices of the pieces will be listed for the public and the sales status will be updated regularly. Additionally, new works will be added over the course of the presentation. According to a press release, gallery directors and specialists will be available for consultation during the online exhibit, “allowing collectors worldwide an immediate connection to market expertise.”

The selection of works showcased on the gallery’s website will premiere simultaneously at Art Basel Hong Kong 2020’s Online Viewing Rooms from March 20 to 25 via Art Basel’s website and the Art Basel app.


ORIGINAL STORY (March 15, 2020): Due to the recent coronavirus outbreak, Art Basel had to cancel its Hong Kong 2020 edition last month. However, the annual art fair has announced that it will be launching its first-ever Online Viewing Rooms – a new digital platform that allows artists and exhibitors from around the world to display their work in the virtual world.

One of the exhibitors is Simon Lee Gallery that will feature a selection of recent works that walk the line between abstraction and representation by participating artists such as Mel Bochner, Angela Bulloch, Bernard Frize, Donna Huanca, Claudio Parmiggiani, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Garth Weiser, Clare Woods, Yun Hyong-Keun, and Toby Ziegler. A total of 231 galleries from 31 countries are set to showcase over 2,000 artworks worth over $250 million USD.

Art Basel VIP guests will have exclusive access to the VIP preview of the Online Viewing Rooms from March 18 to 20 at 6 p.m. HKT via their Art Basel account. Other visitors will have access from March 20 to 25 by logging in with their Art Basel account as well, or by registering for one online.

Elsewhere in art, teamLab’s permanent FUTURE WORLD exhibition in Singapore just launched five new artworks.
