Interview with José Sacal

Interview with José Sacal

Interview with José Sacal in August 2017

Where are you from?

I was born in Cuernavaca, Morelos. 2. How did you get interested in art? Since I was little I felt joy for drawing, modelling, singing, etc. When you are little your parents feel proud, but as you grow older, doing fun things becomes waste of time for your parents. I was a very lucky person, since, by marrying my beautiful wife, she influenced me and supported me to continue in the world of art, especially sculpture.

Making the most of arty Hong Kong: Art Basel and beyond

It’s the perennial question: how do you start with a blank canvas and end up with a multimillion-pound product? In just over a decade, Hong Kong’s art market has grown to the third-largest in the world, behind only New York and London. Fairs and galleries have blossomed in the city – and the local and street art scenes are thriving alongside them.

Much of Hong Kong’s art market has its origins in the Art HK art fair, set up in 2008 to spark investor interest in Hong Kong – the perfect location for China’s burgeoning art investors, as well as established western investors with a taste for contemporary Chinese art. The fair was a hit, and in 2013 Art Basel bought out Art HK, propelling it to international prominence. The annual show, this year running 9-31 March, is the keystone of the city’s art calendar – and its success has led a host of other art fairs to grace the city: Art Central is timed to coincide with Art Basel, but aims for a more Asian focus; the twice-yearly Asia Contemporary Art Fair is a far more intimate affair set over several floors of the Conrad Hotel; while May’s Affordable Art Fair is aimed squarely at first-time buyers. Auctions at Sotheby’s and Christie’s have set global records, trading everything from pink diamonds to Warhols and whiskies

Meanwhile, the gallery scene is booming, with international blue chip galleries moving into the Central business district: London’s White Cube and New York’s Gagosian and Lehmann Maupin, to name just a few, all occupy the few hundred square meters that mark the city’s most desirable retail real estate.

The brand new H Queen’s tower in the heart of Central is focused on luxury retail and art, with a prominent ground-floor exhibition space and skyscraping galleries from international names including Hauser & Wirth, Pace and David Zwirner. While you’re in the area, the venerable Pedder Building has long been home to some of the city’s most prestigious galleries, and a trip through its corridors can leave behind a score of happy gallerists.

2017 surge in art market - Christie’s, Sotheby’s report

artevent

After riding the brakes for the past two years, the art market gathered momentum last year, fuelled by a surging stockmarket and new collectors willing to splurge on blue-chip art. London-based auction house Christie’s International said last week that it sold $US6.6 billion in art last year, up 21 per cent from 2016 but still down from its $US8.4bn record in 2014.

Christie’s total included $US5.9 bn in auction sales, up a third from a year ago. Yet its privately brokered sales dropped 35 per cent to $US612 million — a possible sign that sellers funnelled more of their goods into public auctions rather than discreet sell-offs. Overall, Christie’s also achieved higher auction totals in autumn than the northern spring.

Its rival Sotheby’s, based in New York, auctioned $US4.7bn last year, up 13 per cent from the year before. Sotheby’s is expected to release its consolidated sale totals later this month. Boutique house Phillips said it auctioned $US625.4m in art last year, up a quarter from 2016; it privately sold an additional $US83.5m of art.
