ShContemporary takes place every September in the spectacular Shanghai Exhibition Center in Shanghai, China. The first edition in 2007 immediately established itself as Asia’s most dynamic and international contemporary art fair (see photos here).
The 2008 edition attracted over 140 prestigious international galleries from nearly 30 countries, and was visited by over 15,000 collectors, artists, curators and art enthusiasts (see photos here).
This year ShContemporary returns with a new artistic direction and initiatives to engage with emerging collectors from the region. A unique curatorial team consisting of Wang Jianwei, Mami Kataoka, and Anton Vidokle is working with Fair Director Colin Chinnery to give ShContemporary09 an experimental and daring artistic vision.
