a fresh start

A new year is as good a reason as any for a new perspective. When we began thinking about our first issue of 2021—a giddying prospect after such a dismal year—I had one request, and that was to tell stories that might give our readers some insight into how they can begin this year with a renewed sense of purpose. I’ve read several counter-intuitive articles over the last year claiming that office productivity has not been adversely affected by the shift to remote work, and surveys that indicate many employees in big cities would, in fact, prefer not to go back to their former cubicles once it’s safe to again. That might be true, but I think what still easily gets lost when working from home is a true feeling of motivation.…

all the fun of the fair

From November 26 to 30, Art Basel pulled off an event that many doubted was possible in a pandemic: a real-life, in-person art fair. Titled Hong Kong Spotlight by Art Basel, it was the only physical event the company held in 2020: Covid-19 forced it to cancel its flagship fairs in Basel, Miami Beach and Hong Kong, and pivot to hosting online sales instead. Twenty-two galleries took part in Hong Kong Spotlight, among them international players like Gagosian and Simon Lee Gallery, as well as local names such as Kwai Fung Hin and 10 Chancery Lane. The fair kicked off just as the fourth wave swept into the city, but nothing could deter art collectors and connoisseurs from getting their fix: 8,000 of them visited Hong Kong Spotlight and its neighbour,…

Few events generate as much excitement within the art community as Para Site’s annual gala dinner and auction, which took place on November 19 in the grand Astor Ballroom of the St Regis. On the night, more than 90 pieces went under the hammer, including works by renowned artists Daido Moriyama, Antony Gormley, Pacita Abad and Angela Su, to raise funds for Para Site’s extensive programme of exhibitions, publications and educational projects. After months of social distancing, guests arrived excited and ready to bid. Former Para Site board member Jehan Chu, who took on the role of auctioneer for the evening, kept the room buzzing and sent prices skyrocketing from behind the rostrum. During the evening, Para Site also launched its latest grant for artists. Supported by an anonymous donor, the NoExit…
