HISTORY

OF HOTEL ART FAIR

The history of hotel art fair can be traced back to year 1994, where four art dealers rented a set of hotel rooms at Gramercy Park Hotel in New York United States and started the very first hotel art fair in the world - The Gramercy International Art Fair.

KUALA LUMPUR'S FIRST HOTEL ART EXPO

With the support of the Ministry of Tourism, Arts & Culture Malaysia and Yayasan Bakti Nusa Malaysia, we successfully organised Art Asia@KL 2018 Hotel Art Expo at Palace of The Golden Horses for the very first time in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2018.
