Art Taipei celebrate this year its 20th Anniversary. Among the 148 galleries which participate in the fair this year, more than half come from overseas. The 78 foreign galleries come from 15 different countries/regions, including Japan, China, Hong Kong, Korea, Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, France, Germany, Greece, Belgium, Switzerland, the U.K. and the U.S.
The spirit of the event this year is After 20, 20 After, Art as a Way of Cultivation. By taking 20 as a starting point, the energies accumulated through rich experiences of the past will lead to further growth and vigor. For the past twenty years, there were upheavals regarding both the external environment and the internal demand. Art Taipei reflects on its own relation to the industry. On the one hand, it adapts itself to international situations and repositions itself accordingly. On the other hand, it also assumes the educational mission of art appreciation in the country. Art Taipei has become a unique platform for contemporary art dealing in Asia.
Lehmann Maupin gallery from New York (established in 1996), Ben Brown Fine Arts from London (established as an individual brand by a senior manager of Sotheby’s in 2004), Silverlens from Manila (the leading contemporary art gallery in Philippines): all these galleries participate Art Taipei for the first time.
