Art+Tech Summit: Mixed Reality

Hong Kong | 21 November 2019

Christie's, in collaboration with Christie's Education, is delighted to present Art+Tech: Mixed Reality in Hong Kong this November. The third instalment of the global summit and the first in Asia, follows the successful discussions on blockchain in London and on A.I in New York.

The one-day conference will explore the role and impact of immersive experiences through augmented, virtual and mixed realities in every aspect of contemporary living. Christie’s is also the first auction house in Asia to incorporate AR and VR technologies into exhibitions.

Our programme of lectures, talks and panel discussions will bring together innovators and artists who adopt these digital tools in their practice; creatives and industry entrepreneurs who design digital platforms to enhance the display, connoisseurship and collecting in today’s global art market; and disrupters who continue to push the boundaries of our different realities. The continued influences of blockchain and artificial intelligence will be revisited.

We look forward to welcoming you to Art+Tech: Mixed Reality on 21 November at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Book in advance for discounted tickets.
