The Ninth China International Gallery Exposition(C

Two years after China became the world’s largest art auction market, after years of progressive growth, it has again taken the crown by reaching a turnover of 4.79 billiondollars. Though the global economy continues to slump, collectors from Asia - especially from China - are rising. The emerging wealthy class is flocking to the art market, taking it to a future point of growth.

At CIGE 2011, more than two thirds of the artworks from 60 carefully selected galleries from home and abroad were sold. The 2011 exposition was attended by over 5,000 VIPs, including collectors, curators, artists, gallery owners, media representatives, business and culture elites. Visitors to the exposition exceeded 40,000.

CIGE 2012 Art Project Highlights

CIGE is dedicated to realising art projects that are of great academic and market value.Mapping Asia: solo exhibitions by young Asian artists, is just such a project. This year, the project will feature the latest works from 17 young artists as recommended by 13 galleries, including Tang Contemporary Art, Galerie Urs Meile, Beijing Art Now Gallery, and emerging names such as Hemuse Gallery, Gallery Yang and H.T. Gallery, as well as overseas galleries including Gallery SUN Contemporary (Korea), About Art Project (Korea) and Frantic (Japan).

CIGE 2012 marks the debut of CIGE Project, a new art grogram which to underscore academic values. The project invites an influential figure in a specific area to curate a themed exhibition for CIGE’s public space. This year, the curator is Guo Xiaoyan, CEO ofMinsheng Contemporary Art Research Center and deputy director of MinshengContemporary Art Museum. She will be responsible for selecting an artist and curating an exhibition in a 200 square meter area on site at the exposition. In this way, the project will perfectly blend the academic tastes of the curator with the fair’s commercial activities.

The other new project is Guest Country 2012. Each year CIGE picks a curator from any chosen country or region to present a special exhibition, which will deliver an impression of art there to viewers at CIGE. On the 20th anniversary of diplomatic relations between China and Korea, CIGE 2012 chooses Lee Daehyung to be the curator for the first Guest Country project: Solid Illusion Beijing, which will showcase multi-media artworks by outstanding Korean artists.

CIGE has been giving consistent attention to non-profit art agencies, including art museums which have been receiving tens of millions worth of investment across the country in recent years. Subliminal - the non-profit agency exhibition, has attracted dozens of prominent non-profit art organizations from home and abroad since the project was launched. This year CIGE will introduce to the audience two museums: Shanghai Minsheng ContemporaryArt Museum, the Himalayas Art Museum and DSL Collecrion representatives of the surge of civil museums in China. CIGE 2012 will also single out an Asian museum with rich capacity-building experience and mature operational mechanisms to share its successful story with its counterparts.
