Thanks to an unprecedented boom in China’s art market and a growing demand for Western art, several influential international galleries have opened permanent exhibition spaces in Hong Kong this week, timed to coincide with this year’s ART HK 12 fair. Parisian dealer Emmanuel Perrotin has opened his vast seventeenth floor Galerie Perrotin with an exhibition of work by American neo-pop artist KAWS, titled 'The Nature of the Need'.
