With its incomparable breadth and depth, China has developed one of the world’s largest art markets. The art market of China is greatly distinguished from others around the world due to its profound culture and core values. Established in 2006, Art Beijing has become one of the top art and exhibitions brands in all Asia. Coming back for its 12th edition between April 29th and May 2nd, the fair continues to adapt to market trends and further define its position in a continually changing industry. With the key idea of being “Locally Based and Asia-Oriented”, Art Beijing 2017 will feature contemporary art, design, classic art, and public art. For this year’s edition, the fair will bring together 160 exhibitors, integrating all significant forces in China.

Besides providing support and service for galleries during this exhibition, Art Beijing 2017 will also appear as a regular platform to divert all kinds of resources and traffics into regular exhibitions and operations of galleries. Aiming to provide a large variety of high-level works based on the market demand while keeping professional, the fair will fuel the prosperity of the art market and promote the penetration of arts into the society and people’s lives.

Special Divisions

With more and more galleries scattered throughout Beijing and their gradual standardization, growth and expansion into influential art institutions, Art Beijing has grasped the opportunity during this rapid development to grow and advance with new galleries. In order to promote the emerging artists and projects in Asia, Art Beijing has created an exhibition program titled Find. Together with 17 galleries in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Wuhan and Tokyo, including EGG Gallery, Hunsand Space, Tong Gallery + Projects, Yamamoto Gendai and URANO, the fair will present a variety of artistic forms such as painting, image, installation, photography, and graffiti. Adding more new Asian elements to the fair, it will enable more collectors and visitors to understand and learn about the new look and new development of Asian art.

In order to further demonstrate and continue the core spirit of eastern and Asian art, the fair will present another special division titled ASIA plus. The program will be divided into two parts: Asia Galleries with International Presence, as well as a variety of themed exhibitions with galleries in China, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea, such as Hive Center for Contemporary Art, Platform China, Eslite Gallery, Taka Ishii Gallery, Tokyo Gallery + BTAP, and Arario Gallery, that will present the diverse artistic output in Asia. Among them, the themed exhibition The Paralleled Worlds in Asia will invite six Chinese and Japanese artists, including Wu Jian’an, Takahiro Iwasaki and Kishio Suga, which will have their works exhibited at the Venice Biennale 2017, as well as Ji Dachun, Liu Xiaodong and Motohiko Odani, which had their works exhibited at the Salon before. Galleries featured in the exhibition display the development of contemporary art in Asia and its trend, revealing the internal differences and links of the Eastern Asian Cultural Community in terms of art.

The Special Exhibition

In order to advocate and carry forward the true art spirit, Art Beijing will continue the special exhibition of Xiaowei Hutong. The Xiaowei Hutong No. 5 will be the third exhibition with Hongkun Museum of Fine Art, showing how people of the Chinese Academy of Art have persisted in and carried forward the central spirit of art for generations. The exhibition aims to provide a criterion for collectors and visitors to review the artworks and a reference for an art collection.

The Side Program

Established in the 10th edition Art Beijing in the form of the Design Pavilion at the fair, Design Beijing combines art and design, discovers future design trends and promotes the Chinese design industry. To further reinforce the concept of artistic design, Art Beijing 2017 continues with this dedicated pavilion under the theme “Art · Design · Life”. The section aims to find an accurate position between art and design and offer more choices for collectors, but it also makes more efforts to guide the focus of collectors back to art and life without being restricted by the age, category or concept.

Following the need to introduce art into public space, Art Beijing has been dedicating itself to the practice of public art and art education in recent years. With their program “Art in Public Space”, the fair will introduce art park projects and other relevant themed exhibitions, providing a practical example for art to enter the public’s everyday life in a reasonable way.
