On Wednesday evening we celebrated the launch of the third Apollo 40 Under 40 and kicked off the UK art season with a party in London. The annual 40 Under 40 recognises the young people who are making waves across the art world: this year’s list focused on the Asia Pacific region, following editions for Europe (2014) and the USA (2015). The event was held at Ham Yard Hotel in association with Sophie Macpherson Ltd.
