The 1st Taipei / International Contemporary Art Fair “YOUNG ART TAIPEI” is the very first contemporary art fair in Asia that focuses on young artists under the age of 45. This fair aims to serve as a platform for contemporary art in Asia to communicate within the region.
According to statistics proves that one third of the transaction in Sotheby's Hong Kong sale of Asian Contemporary Art is contributed by Taiwanese collectors. This figure shows that Taiwan has become one of the most promising potential markets in Asia for consuming contemporary art pieces. In 2009, we will hold “YOUNG ART TAIPEI” in an attempt to not only integrate the large art collecting and investing force in the market, but also create further connections amongst the art collecting groups in Asia. Due to an open economic policy towards free funding flows and a low 5% business tax, Taipei City, the capital of Taiwan provides a perfect environment and a convenient channel for international galleries to promote their own artists. Therefore, from May 7, 2009 to May 10, 2009, we will invite up to 40 high quality international galleries in Asia to join our fair in Taipei. Through our partnership with Sunworld Dynasty Hotel Taipei, we offer you a sophisticated and elegant venue, as the platform for all participating galleries, curators, artists, collectors and audiences.
