AArt Citizen Art Shanghai 2019

In May 2019, Artemis Art returned to AArt Citizen Art Shanghai, our second time participating in the fair after our debut in 2016. The art fair took a hiatus last year, and returns this year as a single site art fair at the prestigious Twelve At Hengshan. This time around we featured six young and emerging artists; Dedy Sufriadi, Gatot Indrajati, Indra Dodi, and Laksamana Ryo, from Indonesia; plus Ajim Juxta and Syahbandi Samat from Malaysia.

Commencing with a VIP Preview and Vernissage day on Friday, May 10, the art fair took place throughout the weekend, concluding on Sunday, May 12 2019.

While the number of visitors seemed lower than our debut participation in 2016, we felt that the quality of the crowd was better this time around. In all, the art fair helped us extend our presence in Shanghai, verbal feedback from a few visitors mentioning that the artworks we exhibited were the most “unique” and “different” compared to the other participating galleries. Not surprising, as the Southeast Asian visual aesthetic is quite different overall from what is typically found in North Asia.

With Shanghai being positioned as an art destination to rival Hong Kong, the city will certainly feature in our art fair programming in the future, in addition to other strategic fairs and focused exhibitions in China.
