2011 Art Revolution Taipei

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.

Artists Are the Core

One thing truly “revolutionary” about Art Revolution Taipei 2011 is that the exhibition is curated around artists, rather than gallery-centric as seen in most other shows. The floor plan and design all work around participating artist and the selection of their artworks, not around the gallery. In fact, the whole idea is to make the exhibition in and of itself a great piece of art, so that artists and their artworks all contribute to the creation of this enormous piece of artwork.

Nine Main Thematic Sections

Art Revolution Taipei 2011 features the A.R.T. Curatorial,Taiwan Contemporary Art, China Contemporary Art, International Contemporary Art,UCCA, New York Contemporary Art Fund‧Art Communicates Beyond Boundary, Art and Design, ART LUXGEN,Art Your Compassion, totaling nine main thematic sections with 262 booths.

Art Your Compassion

This year’s Art Revolution Taipei also features a special thematic charity program: “Art Your Compassion,” which invites over 100 international and local celebrities to participate. All the proceeds will be donated to charity organizations.

This special thematic charity program hosts two events. One is “Hundred Celebrities’ Charity Sale,” for which each participating celebrity will create an artwork about the size 17.5 x 14 cm and priced at US$30. Each collector is allowed to collect two artworks at most. The name of the artist will be revealed to the collector only after they purchase the artist’s artwork. The other event is “The Compassionate Rich’s Charity Sale,” which invites locally well-known figures keen for public welfare to participate and each donates 1 to 3 pieces of artworks of his/her own creation. Proceeds from the sale of these artworks will go directly to the Good Shepherd Social Welfare Services.
