highlights of Art Basel and amfar Hong Kong

March 17, 2016

Uma Thurman, Adrien Brody, Karolina Kurkova, Michelle Rodriguez, Pansy Ho, Aloe Blacc, Elle King, Michelle Yeoh, and amfAR Chairman of the Board Kenneth Cole were among those who gathered at the second annual amfAR Hong Kong Gala at Shaw Studios to honor Victoria Beckham for her commitment to the fight against AIDS. The event, presented by Harry Winston and Calvin Klein Collection, raised over $4 million for amfAR’s life-saving AIDS research programs.

The evening also featured three spectacular live performances. Legendary Chinese concert pianist Lang Lang played two beautifully powerful pieces, and Elle King gave a sultry acoustic performance of her Grammy-nominated hit song “Ex’s and Oh’s.” Grammy-nominated soul artist Aloe Blacc ended the evening with a set of his biggest hits that brought the crowd to a frenzy, including “Candyman,” “I Need a Dollar,” “The Man,” and “Wake Me Up.”

During the same week, Art Basel Hong Kong was also in full swing with original off site film screenings, events, parties and exhibitions including new works by legendary American artist Larry Bell installed at The Upper House and Pacific Place.
