Art Taipei 2014 (the Taipei International Contemporary Art Fair)

October 27, 2014 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

Young Art Taipei (the Taipei International Contemporary Art Fair) launched in 2009 and was Taiwan’s first hotel art fair promoting contemporary art, as well as Asia’s first contemporary art fair exclusively featuring artists 45 years old and younger.

Young Art Taipei is clearly marketed as “young, sophisticated, cutting edge.” Each year it makes a strong appeal to top international galleries to participate. Its mission is to create a platform for Asian contemporary art exchanges with a goal to expand and put the Taiwan contemporary art market on a sound footing.

Through the Asian financial meltdown of 1997 and the global financial crisis of 2008, Young Art Taipei stood tall and undoubtedly consolidated its international position and became an important channel for interaction between international galleries and Asian collectors, galleries, and media. In 2012 there were more than 60 participating galleries from Taiwan, the US, China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Macao.

The fair produced an impressive total sales value of US$1.38 million with some 623 items sold, winning the plaudits of a wide circle of observers. It is anticipated that in the future the fair will be more diversified, work hard to break boundaries, exhibit works from different countries, offer contemporary art of a more diversified nature, discover chef d’oeuvres of young artists, providing participating galleries, curators, artists, collectors, and viewers a sophisticated and full contemporary art exchange platform in hopes of creating another new milestone!
