Young Art Taipei 2011
“YOUNG ART TAIPEI (YAT) is the very first contemporary art fair in
Asia that focuses on young artists under the age of 45. This fair aims to be
served as a platform for contemporary art in Asia. Held in May each year,
YAT has become an important stage for discovering emerging stars in
Asian Contemporary Art market.
YOUNG ART TAIPEI has become an international platform for contemporary arts.
Our focus is not only on the final sale prices and the numbers of transaction but also
on the arts, itself, and hope to enlarge and integrate Asian contemporary art market.
In 2011, we will invite 60 galleries attending YAT, and promote artists who have significant
bodies of works from different perspectives. YAT aspires to create a refined and elegant
contemporary art platform for galleries, curators, artists, collectors and visitors.”

I participated the art fair as a dealer and artist as well. I worked for
Keumsan Gallery in Seoul, Korea. Working for this gallery gave me a lot of
lesson since I barely knew about how Korean Art Market is happening.
Also, having an experience of dealing artwork is quite interesting. Now I know
a little bit of how to sell artwork.
