ShContemporary 08 - THE Asian Art Fair returns to the Shanghai Exhibition Center  September 10th-13th

After a successful debut in 2007, ShContemporary returns to the spectacular Shanghai Exhibition Center from September 10th - 13th. This year the fair coincides with the opening of the Shanghai Biennale offering art lovers an unparalleled art extravaganza in Shanghai during September.

ShContemporary is the only major international art show that provides a comprehensive top quality overview of the artistic scene in Asia and creates a cross over with the works of western artists.  "The galleries and artists in the fair have been selected on the basis of excellent creative quality that goes beyond fashion and market trends." stated Lorenzo Rudolf fair director.

ShContemporary serves as a catalyst for exchanges between Western and Asian art worlds.  Over 130 exhibiting galleries representing 25 countries will include an equal mix of the best galleries from the East and top Western galleries. Plus, 30 artists from Asia Pacific region will be presented in a unique curated section Best of Discovery.
