Our Story

The Asia Contemporary Art Show was founded by collector and gallery owner Mark Saunderson, along with business partners Douwe Cramer and Sarah Benecke. Held in Hong Kong during the two most important seasons for buying art, in the Spring during Hong Kong Art Week and in the Autumn during the Fall art auction season, the Show is driven by three individuals who each have over 20 years' experience in Hong Kong's media and events business, as well as the city's buzzing art scene. An exceptional team of customer-oriented staff from Hong Kong, China, Japan, South Korea, the UK, the USA and the Philippines helps us deliver vibrant, diverse and fun shows for collectors and art buyers, in addition to providing great service and support for our exhibitors from all around the world.
This website offers you an engaging browsing experience with more than 1,300 artists and over 14,000 various artworks, and also hosts comprehensive information on all our exhibitors, the artists they represent and artworks they will exhibit at our Shows. All of the works on site are available for sale, but even if you do not wish to buy anything now, we hope that as you browse you encounter a piece of art that stirs something within you. Collectors are also welcome to visit our beautiful gallery space in Sheung Wan, where we hold smaller events throughout the year for some of our favourite artists (details under Exhibitions on this website).
