About the trade show
SH Contemporary 2012 takes place from September 7th to 9th, with preview on the 6th, in downtown Shanghai, at the extraordinary Shanghai Exhibition Center, and with a joint 4-day programme of openings, studio visits and events, in cooperation with the city's leading galleries and cultural initiatives.
Mirroring the Asia Pacific art systems in the city that is the hub of the region, SH Contemporary highlights the work of galleries that promote innovative practices and research and nurture the creative movements that are crossing China and Asia, changing the global cultural landscape.
The 6th edition of the fair is organized into 2 main sections, providing visitors with a selection of cutting-edge and emerging art, including video, film, photography and new media.
With the clear mission of contributing to the international development of the Asian art scene, SH Contemporary will focus on new works by famous artists, as well as on emerging artists and galleries and on international galleries who are actively developing their approach to the market in the Asia Pacific region.
Shanghai is central to SH Contemporary. The fair will be held inside and outside the walls of the Exhibition Centre, involving galleries, the city's cultural and educational institutions, alternative and independent art spaces, and the most advanced expressions of the city's creative industries and the media.
By visiting Shanghai during the days of SH Contemporary, collectors and visitors will have a sense of the energies that are reshaping the art world, while international galleries will have the opportunity to take a central stage in an evolving market, exposing their artists to a public that is highly enthusiastic about contemporary art.
