Art Taipei, formerly known as Taipei Art Fair International, is the longest-standing art fair in Asia. It has been organized by Taiwan Art Gallery Association since 1992. The 18th annual event, Art Taipei 2011, will be held during 26th to 29th August, 2011, at Taipei World Trade Center.
The most important link for trading Chinese and Asian arts Art Taipei is the most experienced and professional platform for trading Chinese and Asian arts. The art market in Taiwan has become more and more mature since the 80's, and today's Taiwanese collectors, many of whom brought up in this established environment, are considered to be the best collectors in the Chinese community. Taiwan's art galleries also pride themselves with great understanding of works and relationships with artists. Not only do galleries from Korea, Japan and Southeast Asia gather at Art Taipei each year, European and North American participants are also no strangers to the event. Furthermore, with the gate opened between Taiwan and China since 2000, galleries from China and Hong Kong at the event have increased and Art Taipei is now genuinely the most important platform for Chinese arts.
