The organizer also emphasizes the parallels of globalization and localization, to connect artists and art institutions from Mainland China, Japan, Korea, the Southeast Asia, Europe and America. Therefore, this will be an art festival with global amplitude, depth and visibility. In the midst of this “Revolution”, there will be an innovative new program which is the“Art Your Compassion“ charity program. Art director Lee Sun-Dun Lee says: “We appreciate very much those celebrities' compassions being revealed through their artworks. We also expect the public to bring their artworks home with the same compassion too.”
