A shift in focus from Basel to Hong Kong?

Overthenet has picked up on news that there are no New Zealand (or Australian) galleries in the lineup for this year's Art Basel (Switzerland). In the past, Michael Lett (two presentations at Art Statements) and Starkwhite (one presentation at Art Statements and another at Art Unlimited) have flown the New Zealand flag in Basel. Now Art Basel Hong Kong appears to be the preferred fair for many New Zealand and Australian galleries. Starkwhite has been showing at Art HK and Art Basel Hong Kong since 2008 and will participate again this year in Hong Kong's international art fair, along with Michael Lett and Hopkinson Mossman, and Australian galleries Jensen|Sydney, Roslyn Oxley9, Anna Schwartz, Tolarno and Utopian Slumps.
