Today, China has become the number one largest art market in the world, challenging the United States and Britain for prominence with its rising collector class and booming economy. Where Chinese collectors once invested in traditional works of art, research shows that they are rapidly embracing the contemporary art market with a younger generation of affluent consumers driving record sales in this developing area.
Located in the heart of the nation’s international business district, Shanghai is China’s most populous city and home to over 20 million inhabitants and has emerged as a critical cultural platform attracting worldwide attention. The historic city not only offers superior international art fairs and expansive cultural initiatives, but is also an unparalleled Asian and contemporary art market increasingly interested in international art trends.
