The Art021 art fair ran in Shanghai from November 12 to 16, 2014, and Art+ Shanghai Gallery is here to provide you with a short recap of the event! This was the fair’s second year and again took place in the Rockbund complex, creating a nice contrast between the Art Deco buildings and the contemporary art inside.
Founded by active collectors and promoters of contemporary art Kelly Ying and Bao Yifeng, the Art021 art fair gathered 54 galleries with a mixture of well-known names and emerging artists. Neon works by Tracey Emin, paper works by Zhang Peili, and oil paintings by Xie Nanxing were on display for the occasion, along a whole host of others! A light installation by Olafur Eliasson (who was featured in our last artist snapshot) was also exhibited!
Take a look at the pictures above and share your views on these art pieces!
Tonight I have meet my shinning Angel, a beautiful Flower that was born in Spring, she got what it takes to break my heart. A Body I admire, a heart so pure as a diamond & smile so fragile but powerful I want to treasure for ever. All I want now is to tell this stunning alien from outer space how precious she is.
