  China’s dynamic future is embodied in the third edition of Asia’s most forward-looking international contemporary art fair. The immense artistic and commercial potential of the Asian market is harnessed through a series of bold new initiatives at ShC09.

DISCOVERIES
The Discoveries section is a curated exhibition and forum of lectures with the theme “Discovering Contemporary”.

a carefully selected group of galleries from Europe and the Americas such as Galleria Continua, Giorgio Persano, James Cohan, and will show the most interesting contemporary talent, with a special focus on Asian contemporary art.

The Collector’s Development Program
This year, ShContemporary has created a specialized team whose purpose is to engage with emerging collectors in China and create fresh networking opportunities.
Through cooperation with those who have direct access to the burgeoning Chinese art market, ShC actively reaches out to potential and emerging collectors.
Fair Director Colin Chinnery explains the thinking behind the CDP: “We have resources larger than those of individual galleries or independent advisors, and we want to put these resources to use all year round instead of just the few days during an annual art fair, to create a powerful means for the stimulation of the market.”

万众瞩目的09ShContemporary上海艺术博览会国际当代艺术展将于2009年9月9日第三次登陆雄伟绚烂的上海展览中心。

中国的未来充满着勃勃生机,作为亚洲最具前瞻性的国际当代艺术博览会,第三届ShContemporary必将再现其特有的活力。届时,亚洲市场蕴含着的巨大艺术和商业潜力,将通过本届展会中的一系列大胆新举措被展示出来:

亚太区藏家发展项目(CDP)
今年,ShContemporary组建了一支专业团队,立志于与中国新兴藏家的互动,并为其提供全新的学习交流机会。

很多机构与不断发展的中国艺术市场戚戚相关,通过与这些机构的合作,“上海当代”积极地发掘出具有潜力,新兴的藏家群体。

展会总监秦思源对CDP项目背后的思考作了诠释:“展会的资源不仅仅只来源于独立画廊或独立顾问,不只局限于每年展会期间的这些天,我们将在整个全年运用这些资源,把资源创造成刺激市场的强有力武器。”
ShContemporary由上海市国际文化传播协会促进,上海艺术博览会组委会,东上海国际文化影视集团,联袂意大利博罗尼亚展览集团共同主办,强强合作,联手打造亚太地区乃至全球当代艺术展会的旗舰。
