From May 12-15, Art Revolution Taipei 2011 will be displaying rare masterpieces at the Taipei World Trade 2nd Exhibition Hall. The exhibition will include Rembrandt’s “Red Print,” a Picasso print that has only been in private collection, Miro’s original paintings with its print (collection level equal to the Tate Britian), Dali, and Chagall’s artwork. Alongside these famous artists will be 210 artists’ masterpieces from 22 countries around the globe such as Taiwan, China, Japan, Korea, Southeast Asia, Europe, and the U.S. Additionally, a charity event called “Art Your Compassion,” where many celebrities, social elites, and local entrepreneurs become artists, will sell their artwork with all of the proceeds going to the charity, Good Shepherd Social Welfare Services.
One of the goals of the ART 2011 will be to promote globalization and localization while functioning as an interactive meeting place for artists, cultural institutes, and collectors from around the world. The Taiwan fair hopes to attract attention both locally and internationally. “The entire art fair is itself a colossal artwork,” said Lee Sun-Don, Art Director of ART 2011. This “colossal artwork” concentrates on the entire process of the artists and their artworks from the curatorial stage, to advertising, publicity, and even the layout and design of the exhibition site. This unique approach to exposition will enable the visitors to become a part of the creation of the artwork. Included in the exhibition will be nine thematic areas including ART 2011 Curatorial, Taiwan Contemporary Art, China Contemporary Art, International Contemporary Art, Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, New York Contemporary Art Fund-Art Is beyond Boundaries, Cultural and Creative Production, Art Your Compassion, ART LUXGEN.
