In this week’s episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, we chat with Enid Tsui, arts editor at the South China Morning Post. First, they detail the impact of Covid travel restrictions on the art market in Hong Kong and China. Then, they discuss how Chinese collectors have been missed at art events such as fairs and auctions, and how galleries outside of China have not had as much of a presence there. Also, Enid speculates if the recent expansion in the art world in areas within Asia outside of China, such as Singapore and Seoul, is partly due to the government of China as well as Covid travel restrictions. She then gives an update on the art market in Hong Kong and mainland China and whether there is any talk of a potential softening. After, Enid explains the role of private museums in China in terms of serving the broader public within the art ecosystem in China. Lastly, Enid explains why there is high hopes for this year’s edition of Art Basel Hong Kong.
