I just noticed Art Revolution Taipei 台北新藝術博覽會 2011 is coming up! It’s the same weekend as the Young Art Taipei 2011 Exhibition 台北國際當代藝術博覽會 (5-12/14); which means I get to spend some time exploring tons of contemporary Asian art. I participated in last year’s show and had such a great time. This year’s event looks even bigger and has some of my favorite artists coming. Something clever I didn’t notice before: Art Revolution Taipei 2011 abbreviated is A.R.T. 2011.
Unfortunately I was too busy this year to do much painting, and didn’t apply. But I’ll still go and look around – as should you if you’re available.
It’s at the Taipei World Trade Center #2, near the 101 Building. See you there!
Place: Taipei International Trade Center (TITC), Hall 2 No.3, Shung-Lian Road, Taipei
Time: May 12 – 14, 2011 12:00～20:00
May 15, 2011 11:00～17:00
From the website:
Asia’s brand new revolutionary art fair, Art Revolution Taipei 2011 (A.R.T. 2011) features leading and emerging galleries and artists around the globe. 216 plus artists, ranging from the established to the latest generation of emerging figures, are represented in the show’s multiple sections. We expect to see tens of thousands of art lovers visiting and enjoying the show.
The exhibition includes time-tested and cutting-edge paintings, sculptures, drawings, installation, photographs, and prints. Tens of thousands of people are expected to attend the Art Revolution Taipei, including art collectors, art dealers, artists, curators and other art enthusiasts, to enjoy a revolutionary, one-of-a-kind art fair. Another important spot of Art Revolution Taipei 2011 is that we will also invite 100 highly renowned and influential collectors to attend, which would certainly guarantee to bring great attention to the participating artists and their works.
