SHANGHAI.- ShContemporary, Asia’s most dynamic and international contemporary art fair, will launch its third edition on September 9, 2009 with a new artistic direction and initiatives to engage with emerging collectors from the region. A unique curatorial team consisting of Wang Jianwei, Mami Kataoka, and Anton Vidokle is working with Fair Director Colin Chinnery to give ShContemporary09 an experimental and daring artistic vision.

ShContemporary09 is organised around three major areas:

Best of Galleries, ShContemporary’s unique selection of invited top Asian and International galleries

PLATFORM, ShContemporary’s new section focused on emerging artists and on art work produced in the last two years

DISCOVERIES - This year’s theme: Discovering Contemporary

The Forum, organized by Anton Vidokle, where international experts will debate around the question “What is precisely Contemporary Art”?

The conferences will be structured as a series of short lectures and panels animated by international professionals among others Hu Fang (artistic director of the art gallery Vitamin Creative Space), Boris Groys (philosopher and essayist), Raqs Media Collective (a group of media practitioners), Carol Yinghua Lu (vice editor-in-chief of Contemporary Art & Investment), Jan Verwoert (art critic), Hal Foster (professor at the Priceton University), Martha Rosler (artist), Gao Shiming (professor at the Department of Criticism and Executive Director of the Center of Visual Culural Research in Huangzhou), Hans Ulrich Obrist (curator and art critic, co-director at the Serpentine Gallery in London), Jörge Heiser (art critic), Dieter Roelstraete (curator at the Antwerp Museum of contemporary art), Cuauhtémoc Medina (art critic, curator and historian).
