Art Basel has announced that it will delay its Hong Kong art fair from March until May this year as a result of the ongoing pandemic.

The news comes just one week after the fair released the exhibitor list of the show, set to feature 137 galleries from 28 countries and territories, and two days after parent company MCH Group AG revealed plans for new fair in Paris that Art Basel would host in October.
