Shanghai International Art Fair

First launched in November 2019, the Shanghai International Art Fair focuses on Chinese contemporary art. Part of the Yangtze River Delta International Industries Expo, the fair is organised by the Global Art Agency. In just a year, the show has built a strong reputation in the art market. Indeed, more than 80,000 visitors – collectors, curators, art dealers and curious – has visited it in 2019. Thousands of high-quality pieces are showcased in the 54,000 sqm of the National Exhibition and Convention Center Shanghai (NECC). The range of mediums is various: painting, sculpture, photography, art installation and more. There truly is a good-natured atmosphere as the fair doesn’t take itself too seriously. A very pleasant trade exhibition to attend for all art lovers, just a week after the blue-chip fairs ART021 and West Bund.

What would you say is the DNA of The Shanghai Art Fair?

The Shanghai International Art Fair is bringing 100 international artists and galleries to the Yangtze River Delta International Industries Expo (iCiE) hosted by the Governments of Shanghai. The event is China’s largest Cluster for international cultural trade, with an estimated visitor numbers of 120,000, including 25,000 professional buyers. The works that is exhibited are paintings, sculptures, photography art, illustrations, limited edition artworks, and jewellery by upcoming and established artists from over 30 countries. Part of the event will be the Global Art Awards 2020, which has been dubbed as the ‘Oscars of the Visual Arts’. The winners will be announced parallel to the Shanghai International Art Fair.

What type of galleries are chosen to exhibit, and why?

Our Curators Board looks for a variety of works by known and upcoming artists in a variety of mediums in a large price class. The works are selected based upon originality, concept and technique.

What is the price range of pieces? Who is the average buyer?

Prices are going from 2,500 USD up to 10 Million USD. The average buyer is the Chinese local business professional that have a fascination with the international Art & Culture trade.

“The average buyer is the Chinese local business professional.”
