artnet and Hong Kong Gallery Association Host Party to Celebrate artnet News China
Ever wanted to read artnet News in Chinese? Now you can.
Amid the opening of the third edition of Art Basel in Hong Kong, artnet threw a party Thursday night at the city’s Kee Club to celebrate the beta launch of artnet News China. For just over a year, artnet News has delivered art world news, criticism, and commentary around the clock, and with the art world converging this week at one of the major hubs of a booming art market, the site’s beta launch couldn’t come at a more timely moment.
