The Melting Pot Art Basel Hong Kong – Art Asia Pacific.com

http://artasiapacific.com/Blog/TheMeltingPotArtBaselHongKong

Love the title! I love the author’s idea of calling the Asian version of Art Basel a Melting Pot. I love it because it’s utopian. And it’s paradox at the same time since it’s discussed within the idea of an international art fair where the art is naturally “nation-branded”. But it also recalls that contemporary art is one of the strongest media enabling us to reshape the discourse of cross-border communication BECAUSE of its unique visual language that goes beyond political contents and/or social phenomena.
