Focusing on local resources while adopting a global perspective, ART021 strives for excellence, professionalism and a high level of quality. This year, ART021 is further raising standards by presenting a larger number of prestigious galleries with a wider range of works, and highlighting its public artworks, new media and video works.
In 2015, ART021 will once again focus on 21st century contemporary art in its Main Galleries section, as well as present BEYOND Public Projects, the Collectors’ Invitational Exhibitions, the Museums & Non-profit Institutions Promotion and a series of symposiums. This year’s multi-faceted 1+1 Projects section will showcase solo exhibitions by emerging artists, special exhibitions with one established artist presenting an emerging artist of his/her choice, and group shows with works selected according to themes by curators put forward by individual galleries.
In addition to the various exhibitions to be held throughout the art fair, the forum that will precede the fair will offer the audience a taste of what is to come, and an online discussion platform will also be launched. These additional pathways for participation will broaden the public’s access to contemporary art through diversified media. The fair will also reach out to younger generations of collectors to join our strong collectors’ community. ART021 is dedicated to maintaining strong services for collectors and facilitating international communication between collectors, museums, art centers and patrons, in order to promote the internationalization of China’s contemporary art by combining global perspectives and local collectors’ resources.
