Now that all three editions of Art Basel have been canceled in 2020—in Hong Kong, Basel, and Miami Beach—organisers are looking ahead to 2021 and trying to balance the optimism of a vaccine with the uncertainty of what lies ahead.

Organisers of the international circuit of fairs announced today that dates for the next edition of Art Basel Hong Kong, typically held in March, will now take place in May, due to “the ongoing impact of the global pandemic including travel restrictions,” according to a statement. The new dates will be May 21—23, with preview days slated for May 19—20. It will still be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The decision was taken “in close consultation with gallerists, collectors, partners, and external experts, with the goal of ensuring that the fair will be attended by the largest possible number of collectors, curators, and arts professionals from Art Basel’s global network, while protecting the health and safety of everyone concerned,” according to the statement.
