The main sector of the show features 86 of the world’s leading galleries presenting the highest quality of painting, sculpture, drawings, installation, photography, video and digital works.
This year’s Galleries sector includes a strong overview of historical works from Asia, such as the presentation of the first generation of experimental artist from Korea, Kim Kulim, Byungso Choi, and Soun-Gui Kim at Arario Gallery; Tokyo Gallery + BTAP’s showcase of work by Yoshio Sekine, Kishio Suga, Jiro Takamatsu, Lee Ufan, Lee Jin Woo, and Park Seo-Bo. These historical presentations will be complemented by a range of young artists such as Firenze Lai at Vitamin Creative Space, Harold Ancart at Clearing, Elizabeth Glaessner at P.P.O.W, Trevor Shimizu at 47 Canal, and Bendt Eyckermans at Carlos/Ishikawa.
