Which city, Singapore or Hong Kong, will become the hub of the Asian art market? Until now, Hong Kong seemed to be a slam-dunk with its Art HK fair, which is going into its fourth edition in May with an exhibitor roster that now includes many of the western world’s top dealers. But last week Singapore unveiled a counter-attack with Art Stage Singapore, a new fair featuring 120 exhibitors, with a line-up that was mainly Asian but with a number of westerners including Perrotin, Michael Schultz and Marlborough.

Over the next four years, the Central Police Station and Police Married Quarters will be transformed into new cultural institutions, one dedicated to contemporary art, the other to design. If the projects are well executed, they have the potential to reshape Hong Kong’s cultural landscape. If not, they’ll follow a well-trod path into mismanagement and irrelevance.

Once a year, Hong Kong’s largest, longest-lived artist’s colony throws an open day in Fo Tan, an industrial neighborhood near suburban Sha Tin. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the event, the Fotanian Open Studios, on Jan. 8, 9, 15 and 16. The Wah Luen Industrial Center (15-21 Wong Chuk Yeung Street) is the epicenter, with other studios in neighboring warehouse buildings. A map designed to guide visitors through the show is available.

Jointly presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) and the Hong Kong Marching Band Association, a Marching Band Parade will be held at Hong Kong Cultural Centre Piazza this Thursday (December 30) from 2pm to 5pm. Featuring 18 local and overseas marching bands, the parade is part of the Hong Kong Marching Band Festival 2010. Admission is free.
A new Chinese-produced musical set to open Friday in Hong Kong is poised to become an all-singing, all- dancing test of China's sensitivity to criticism. Wrapped within Broadway-style production values, the show holds a mirror to the country's social problems and is centered around an Asian pop icon formerly banned in China. While speech freedoms are protected in the former British enclave, the real test will come when the show tours the mainland this spring.
