EXHIBITION - Shanghai Contemporary Art Fair 2011


The premium Asia Pacific art fair reveals a hugely diverse line-up

With the rising reputation of the Shanghai Contemporary Art Fair, it now celebrates its fifth year. Under the new direction of Massimo Torrigiani, the fifth edition of the fair captures and amplifies the new wave of creativity which is running through the region. Mixing high and popular culture, the academic and the experimental, the established and the emerging, new and old media, highbrow and lowbrow, the global and the local.

This year's focus embodies the vision with the renewed participation of the leading galleries of China together with a selected group of other Asian, European and American galleries. Among others: Beijing Art Now, Beijing Commune, Boers-Li, Eigen+Art, Galleria Continua, James Cohan, Lin & Lin, Long March, Nature Morte, Pace Gallery Beijing, Pearl Lam Fine Art, Pékin Fine Arts, Red Gate, Shanghart, Soka, Star, Tang Contemporary, Shanghai Gallery of Art, Tina Keng/TKG+, Triumph and White Space. We are all looking forward on what it would show up in the fair this time.
