In anticipation of the upcoming ART HK 09 (May 14-17, 2009), Susan Moore takes stock of the still thriving Asian art market and the latent economic potential of the Asia-Pacific region. Hong Kong, clustered in Southern China with Guangzhou and Shenzhen, is already a major art market that captures 45% of the Chinese market as it levies no duty on the import and export of works of art.  Now that the Hong Kong government has approved HK21.6 billion to develop West Kowloon as a cultural district, Hong Kong seems to be preparing to be a powerful regional art market and cultural hub. Hong Kong-based Asia Art Archive has made art education a mission, and continues to initiate debate on cultural matters.  ART HK 09, the international art fair is even stronger in its second year, with the participation of Tokyo's two top dealers, London's Lisson Gallery and White Cube, Gagosian, and mainland galleries such as Galleria Continua, Galerie Urs Meile, Boers-Li Gallery and ShanghART.
