Young Art Taipei, the only international hotel art fair to focus solely on artists under the age of 45, will take place from 24-26 April 2015. Organisers have announced that this year’s fair is to be held at the Sheraton Grande Taipei.
This year’s fair will mark the seventh edition of YAT, and will feature 94 contemporary galleries hailing from ten countries and territories. Work by over 600 young, emerging artists will be on display. Expanding on last year’s 72 galleries, organisers hope to see the fair join the ranks of Asia’s leading contemporary art events.
In addition to the main displays, this year’s event will feature a new section dedicated to photography, entitled “PHOTO EYE”. The show will be curated by noted Taiwanese photographer, Chao-Liang Shen; director and founder of Lianzhou Foto International Photography Festival, Duan Yuting; judge of the Kimura Ihei photography award, Seto Masato; and director and co-founder of Singapore International Photography Festival, Gwen Lee. The section will showcase the work of emerging contemporary photographers from Taiwan, China, Japan, and Singapore.
