SH Contemporary - Asia Pacific Art Fair
03 September 2013
The annual SH Contemporary Art fair invites 90 exhibitors from 18 countries to Shanghai to celebrate the most interesting new finds in contemporary art. The fair is a response to the recent rapid growth of wealthy Upper Middle Class collectors in the continent and the development of Asian contemporary art, and has made a big impact within the international art market. Established in 2007, the fair attracts art lovers and VIP’s from across the globe and pushes the boundaries of contemporary practice through unique projects and events. ‘Hot Spots’ is dedicated to large scale, site-specific works and on-site performances by renowned artists, whilst The Video Room showcases a program of videos selected by 35 international curators who each chose one work from an artist they think is important for audiences around the world to experience today. The fair will also play host to The Asia Pacific Photography Prize, awarded by a prestigious jury of international photographers, editors, curators and critics.
The fair takes place 7th – 9th September at the extraordinary Shanghai Exhibition Centre.
