Founders & Vision

L’ART EN ASIE 

Welcome to the largest art market in Asia.
While Hong Kong is only second in the world to New York, the city’s vibrant art scene has traditionally been difficult to navigate, with no unified platform to showcase the myriad exhibitions, events, and offerings.

Founded in 2020, AARRTT connects audiences to the best art happenings
locally as well as regionally, offering a curated selection of highlights to encourage art appreciation, exploration, and education. Providing a platform for artists, galleries, and institutions to shine, AARRTT offers the necessary tools to explore the diverse art scene in Asia.

Cultural cities beyond Hong Kong encompass those in the Greater Bay Area
– Macau, Guangzhou, and Shenzhen, where museums, galleries, and exhibitions are opening at astonishing rates – as well as those in neighbouring cities such as Seoul, Singapore, and Taiwan. When it comes to exploring these burgeoning art cities, AARRTT provides you with resources to discover the wealth of happenings.

FOUNDERS

‘We first connected through our love of art, and soon realised that
there was no one source that presents a curated selection of art events.
We founded AARRTT to help art-lovers navigate through all the information,
in order to identify the best art happenings.’
