Taipei International Contemporary Art Fair is the very first contemporary art fair in Asia that focuses on young artists under the age of 45. This fair aims to be served as a platform for contemporary art in Asia.
Held in May each year, with the participation of excellent galleries and young artists around Asia, YAT has become an important stage for discovering emerging
stars in Asian Contemporary Art market.
YAT 2009 took place right after the financial storm stroke the globe. Even so, last YAT delivered a successful sales result due to its professional team’s effort, its
delicate yet amiable exhibiting atmosphere, the experienced domestic collectors and
the participation of 42 International galleries from China, Japan, and Korea, etc.
YAT not only provided the collectors a convenient access to the young artists
around the world through its International Contemporary Art platform, but also offer
the potential new collectors a chance to set out for the journey of collecting with its
upbeat exhibition style of Hotel Art Fair.
YOUNG ART TAIPEI aspires to be the window in Asia for the international contemporary art, and also be the bridge connecting international young artists and Taiwanese collectors and visitors. Based on this motive, the centre of attention is no
longer the record-breaking bidding price or the eye-catching trading number; instead,
YAT hopes this hotel art fair can bring the spotlight back to art itself by highlighting
“Young, Vivid and Affordable`”, in order to establish a more integral art trading
During the exhibition, from May 13th to 16th 2010, there will be 60 first-class galleries attending YAT, presenting their art works in the “Sunworld Dynasty Hotel Taipei”. Certainly, YOUNG ART TAIPEI 2010 will be a refined and elegant contemporary art platform for galleries, curators, artists, collectors and visitors.
