The fair showcases gallery presentations across three sectors, which are named after colloquial Cantonese terms. Chung Dim (“centre point”) Central Galleries focuses on leading international contemporary artists. It features notable institutions, such as Lee & Bae, the Busan gallery, which presents South Korean artist Jin-Wook Yeom’s acclaimed imaginary mountain paintings, and Novalis Art Design, an Italian art design gallery in Hong Kong, which looks at avantgarde art related to colour theories and optical illusions from the 1960s and 70s.
