Cao Fei's Suckling Pig

At the end of another Hong Kong Art Fair – now rebranded as Art Basel in Hong Kong – one image stays in my mind. On an elevated platform stands Lars Nittve, executive director of the much-heralded M+ Museum, due to open in 2017. He is wearing a brown suit and giving a speech, in … More

Hong Kong is very shiny. Mirrored glass buildings reflecting each other in an endless spiral of narcissism: money admiring itself. What a perfect place for an art fair.
