ART KAOHSIUNG, an international art exhibition based in southern Taiwan, will return for its 3rd edition on Dec. 11, bringing a brand new vision of art from Southeast Asia, Northeast Asia, Europe, and the U.S.
Collaborating with art expo organizers in Cologne, Seoul, and Osaka this year, ART KAOHSIUNG will be joined by a total of 104 art galleries from Taiwan and other countries to create the largest art fair in southern Taiwan.
Three major exhibition sections - Contemporary Art Sector, Modern & Contemporary Art Sector, and Kaohsiung Emerging Arts Sector, will be held in the Pier-2 Art Center (駁二藝術特區) and City Suites-Kaohsiung Chenai (城市商旅-高雄真愛館).
The Contemporary Art Sector will bring together 53 art galleries from across Asia to present the trends of Asian contemporary arts, while the Modern & Contemporary Art Sector will allow visitors to enjoy another 60 art galleries from around the world.
The Kaohsiung Emerging Arts Sector will offer a platform for local emerging artists to introduce their works and engage with the international art industry through the exhibition.
ART KAOHSIUNG will also co-host the Kaohsiung Art Forum with the Modern Art Association of Kaohsiung (高雄現代畫學會) at the Pier-2 Art Center, in which key art industry professionals from Japan and Malaysia are invited to exchange ideas.
In addition, the Curatorial Projects will present an exhibition curated by special speakers in this year's art forum. The session will highlight cultural dialogue between Southeast and Northeast Asia.
