Asia's Iconic Art Fair, Pioneering in Placing Artists at the Center

"Art is not just about culture but also education and cultivation, and therefore, it should go beyond the quest for mere commercial gains." To uphold this creed, Art Revolution Taipei (A.R.T.) takes an innovative move to place the artist front and center, with every booth standing as the artist's solo exhibition – quite different from the conventional art shows organized around commercial galleries. This pioneering curatorial vision has led A.R.T. to become the Asia's ionic art fair.

Proactively reaching out to international art circles, A.R.T. has successfully built a world stage for artists at home and abroad to pronounce themselves with their unique flairs. This year, a record-high 471 artists are exhibiting.

Rigorous Selection Procedure, Absolute Brand Name

To present a "best" art fair, A.R.T.'s Art Director Lee Sun-Don sets a high standard for screening artworks and takes charge of the entire selection process in person, selection made rigorously and professionally, leaving no room for lobbying or interpersonal involvement. Along with a rigorous selection process, A.R.T. insists also on bringing up to 60% of the "new blood" to the show every year, introducing more potential and creative artists to the viewers. With these insistences, A.R.T. establishes for itself an "absolute brand" and for the art collectors a representation of trustworthy authority.

"The Artist Is a Work of Art" – An Exhibit with 471 Artists from 74 Countries

To invoke new ideas and demonstrate different dimensions of art, A.R.T. designates a specific theme for exhibition every year. The annual theme for 2018 is: "The Artist Is a Work of Art." An artist's conception, state of mind, selection of media, and physical movements during creation – every stage is a manifestation of art. This year, there are 471 artists from 74 countries displaying up to 3,000 artworks, works diversified in style, expressive medium, local characteristic and cultural orientation.

Art Your Compassion

To link art with philanthropy, every year A.R.T. invites hundreds of social elites and celebrities to create artworks for charity sale, an event called "Art Your Compassion." The proceeds will go to a selected non-profit organization. This year, the receiver is "Down Syndrome Association R.O.C."

In "Hundreds Of Celebrities' Charity Sale," 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.
