Magnus Renfrew moves on from Art Basel Hong Kong

Magnus Renfrew is stepping down from his position as Art Basel Asia Director with oversight of Art Basel Hong Kong, to take on the role of Deputy Chairman, Asia and Director of Fine Arts, Asia for Bonhams. Renfrew was the founding director of ART HK in 2008 and oversaw its development and acquisition by MCH Group (the parent company of Art Basel) in 2011. His continued involvement in Art Basel Hong Kong was a sign that the fair would continue to have a strong Asia/Pacific focus under its new management. From the outset, he has been an advocate for the Pacific region and he will be missed by the New Zealand and Australian galleries that have worked with him over the past seven years.
