Celebrating its fifth edition in Hong Kong, Art Basel presents an ambitious program of 59 film and video works by 67 artists from 38 galleries. Alongside a selection of short films, this year’s sector includes seven special screenings. Highlights are ‘Days Gone By – Yu Hong’ by Wang Xiaoshuai will open the special screenings program depicting the life and work of Yu Hong, a female contemporary Chinese artist. The film not only portrays the life of an individual artist, but also encapsulates the rise of the Chinese art scene during a drastically changing era. ‘Time Spy’ by Sun Xun fuses traditional woodcut techniques with a 3D visual experience. Awarded the Golden Leopard at the Locarno Film Festival in 2017, ‘Mrs. Fang’ by Wang Bing is a documentary that depicts the last stages of a farm worker’s life who has been suffering from Alzheimer’s for several years. Additionally, Art Basel is collaborating with Videotage on a special program ‘The Future Is in the Past’ featuring the Hong Kong-based not-for-profit’s ongoing endeavors and contributions to new-media art from Asia.
