Artforum reports that Art Basel is launching an online platform for all galleries scheduled to take part in the Hong Kong art fair, which has been cancelled due to the outbreak of coronavirus. Online viewing will be available from 20th March – 25th March, with VIP previews from 18th March.

Art Basel’s global director, Marc Spiegler said “As the art market continues to evolve, Art Basel has continually investigated how new technologies can give us new opportunities to support our galleries… the Online Viewing Rooms will provide galleries with a further possibility for engaging with our global audiences, complementing the essential personal interactions that continue to underlie the art market.”

The Online Viewing Rooms can be accessed at artbasel.com/viewing-rooms and on the Art Basel mobile app.
