It is Friday already? Explore 1,300+ works from Art Basel in Hong Kong on Artsy—among them, four artists we think you might fancy:

Lin Tianmao uses installation, textile, and mixed media to transform ordinary objects into sculpture.

Ai Weiwei: A cultural figure of international renown, Ai Weiwei is an activist, architect, curator, filmmaker, and China’s most famous artist. Open in his criticism of the Chinese government, Ai was famously detained for months in 2011, then released to house arrest.

Shezad Dawood: Using film, sculpture, and two-dimensional media, Shezad Dawood orchestrates moments of coalescence between disparate systems of knowledge, culture, tradition, and values.

Isaac Julien: Accomplished filmmaker and video installation artist Isaac Julien is well-known for films like Looking for Langston (1989), a poetic treatment of gay black poet Langston Hughes and the Harlem Renaissance, and other ground-breaking studies of racial and sexual identity, voyages, and cultural displacement.
