Bejiing soon obligatory instead of Basel?
On May 2nd, the China International Exposition 2005 (CIGE) is opening for the 2nd time at the Beijing Trade Center of the Chinese World Trade Centers. Compared to last year, when visitors had to search for foreign and internationally-active galleries, this year, numerous galleries from the West and the USA are participating along with 27 Beijing and Shanghai dealers.
With a total of no less than 85 galleries, the CIGE already seems to make a mark in the 2nd round, as the hip art fair for contemporary art in Eastern Asia.
Jack Tilton Gallery, New York, is participating beside the Gagosian Gallery. Alexander Ochs will be coming from Berlin, and will, like Lothar Albrecht, Frankfurt/M., present his Beijing branch gallery. From Cologne, Barbara Grässlin and Christian Nagel will be attending; along with Krinzinger, Vienna, Lukas Leitner will open his booth for Austria; Johnson Chan with his Hanart TZ from Hong Kong, Koyanagi from Tokyo (among others) will take part while the Korean galleries are led by BHAK. In addition, magazines and new media will have a big share since besides arts.tom.com or the Shanghai based ´Art China´, ´Art + Auction´, the London ´Art Newspaper´ as well as Marek Claassen, Berlin, promoting his artfacts.net, are going to show.
