3rd July 2024 – (Hong Kong) Hong Kong’s highly anticipated BOOKED: Hong Kong Art Book Fair is set to make its return for the sixth edition from 30 August to 1 September 2024. Hosted by Tai Kwun Contemporary, the three-day event will take place across all floors of JC Contemporary, Tai Kwun. The art book fair aims to showcase the works of local, regional, and international exhibitors, including publishers, artists, booksellers, and organizations from Hong Kong, Macau, Mainland China, as well as countries such as Japan, Korea, Indonesia, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

With over 100 participants, including artists, publishers, organizations, and booksellers, BOOKED: Hong Kong Art Book Fair will feature captivating displays at the intersection of art and publishing. Alongside the exhibitions, a diverse range of public programming, including talks, workshops, and performances, will take place.
