Taipei, Taiwan 2012

About

With an aim to present contemporary Japanese art to art fans worldwide, the NEW CITY ART FAIR opened its doors for the first time in New York in March 2012. The second edition was held in Taipei in conjunction with roomsLINK TAIPEI. This highly anticipated event featured various apparel brands, works of art, as well as other interior merchandise. Held within the same timeframe with the most historic art fair in Asia, ART TAIPEI, a large turnout of guests who work within the art field as well as a number of art collectors from neighboring Asian countries visited the NEW CITY ART FAIR. Our NEW CITY ART FAIR featured the works of over 60 artists from exhibition taken from 12 galleries located in Tokyo, Osaka, Sapporo and Kanazawa. The exhibitions, which cannot be adequately summarized in one word, rely on several mediums, from paintings to digital works, and films, to sculptures and industrial arts. The works of these Japanese artists have gotten favorable notice by Taiwanese art fans as well. Due to the fusion of fashion and design, we expect to appeal to different kind of customer than one typically finds at an art gallery or art fair.

We continue to showcase modern art in various locations across the world at the NEW CITY ART FAIR.
