SECTOR HIGHLIGHTS AT THE SHOW

As the largest and longest running hotel art fair in Asia, the Asia Contemporary Art Show welcomes new and repeat visitors to every edition. Findings from an exit survey of the most recent Show indicates that the majority of visitors are regular art buyers who have bought artwork in the past 12 months. The art living spaces within the hotel have proven to be popular with visitors, providing intimate spaces to view artwork, and helping them imagine how an artwork would look in a home or work place. The Show works closely with exhibitors, promoting their artist through extensive PR, marketing promotions and social media outreach.


The 13th edition of the Show will also feature: Intersections: Taiwanand Artist Dialogues


Intersections: Taiwan will be the next in a series that focuses on the conceptual crossing of artistic ideas between past and present, traditional and modern and East and West. Taiwan will be the third region to be spotlighted, and the sector will feature works that embody the diversity and dynamism, as well as the conceptual “intersections”, of contemporary Taiwanese art. On show will be works by artists who aim to break the artistic rules and challenge norms through expressive contemporary art forms and techniques.


Artist Dialogues dedicates an entire floor to artists exhibiting in a solo or joint presentation. A select 20 art spaces will offer artists an intimate environment to sell their work, as well as articulate their inspirations and artistic practice into a seeing and learning experience. Artists will also have the possibility to secure potential future commissions and special projects, or collaborate with other artists and galleries.
