CIGE 2015 Invitation Letter

The 11th China International Gallery Exposition
Invitation Letter

October is the best time of year in Beijing and the most vigorous time for art exhibitions with the highest number of visiting collectors, and it is when everyone comes together. Therefore, China International Gallery Exposition (CIGE) sincerely invites you to join us in the 11th annual event from October 8-11th, and we are fully prepared for your participation.

Where is it?
As a navigator and explorer in Asian professional gallery expos during the past 10 years, CIGE has become one of the top art expos in Asia. It is well known that Beijing Olympic Games in 2008 and Shanghai Expo in 2010 have demonstrated the booming power of the Chinese economy. Furthermore, China has not only become the worlds second largest economy surpassing Japan, but also became the second largest art market in 2012. With no doubt, Beijing has always been important with regards to Asian culture and art, and it shows strong advantages even compared with Shanghai and Hong Kong. At the end of 2014, with a population of 30 million and 620 million tourist influx makes Beijing a real city of charm.
Beginning last year, CIGE has moved to the China National Convention Centre where is more international and equipped with superior infrastructure. The China National Convention Center is the largest conference center in Asia, surrounded with hotels, office buildings, restaurants and extensive facilities. Located right next to the Birds Nest (China National Stadium for the Olympics opening and closing ceremony) and the Water Cube (National Aquatics Center), the China National Convention Center has superior geographic position with world-class size and equipment.

Who will be together?
During the past 10 years, CIGE has invited nearly 1,000 galleries with over 100,000 visitors. After all the efforts in the past 10 years, we have established a group of collectors with the strongest international vision; especially the younger generations we worked hard to develop this year to make the whole platform high-level and international.
These collectors will be more interested in international art works more so than Chinese contemporary art. CIGE 2015 welcomes the most artistic valued and innovative modern and contemporary art works, while also encourages variable forms of art expression including photography, video, painting, contemporary ink painting, sculptures, mixed media, installations, etc.
For the first time, CIGE 2015 will launch a 50+50=100% model meaning 50 outstanding galleries from all over the world will be invited to Area A, while we will also work with galleries and art organizations to host solo exhibitions of 50 brilliant young and middle-aged artists at Area B. We believe this model will bring art expos all over Asia a brand new look through re-embodying Beijings significant advantage as Chinas culture and art center.

Since you are one of the galleries or organizations with the most artistic valued and innovative modern and contemporary art works, we will offer you free exhibition space with special collectors tours, media reports and onsite service as much as possible. With efforts in 10 years, CIGE 2015 hopes to meet you and serve you with sincerity.
Looking forward to being with you in October!
