Announcing The Art Assembly

A message from Sandy Angus, Tim Etchells and Magnus Renfrew:

Welcome to The Art Assembly, an affiliation of major international art fairs comprising some of the most vibrant and influential art events in the Asia Pacific region. These include Taipei Dangdai, India Art Fair, Sydney Contemporary, PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai and the forthcoming ART SG (Jan 2023).

After working together for many years, we are delighted to present our joint initiatives under the banner of The Art Assembly. As three of the world’s leading fair organisers we have several decades’ worth of experience and expertise, readily employed to the benefit of our member fairs, galleries, partners and audiences.

This April, we are pleased to be opening the 13th edition of the India Art Fair, the leading platform for modern and contemporary art from South Asia, followed by the 3rd edition of Taipei Dangdai, Taiwan’s premier international contemporary art fair, in May.

Both of these events exemplify the principal qualities of all of our member fairs; each tailored to its unique orientation, and each possessing a deep-rooted understanding of its local art market which it plays a pivotal role in driving forward. Crucially, our fairs act as cultural hubs in which artists, both established and those at the early stages of their careers, can thrive and expand their practices, and where our exhibiting galleries can expand their audiences.

Although it has been a challenging two years for art fairs internationally, and specifically in Asia Pacific where restrictions have been slower to lift or are still ongoing, it is precisely the strength of our shared networks and resources that has helped us navigate these tumultuous times.

Pulling these assets together, The Art Assembly further enhances our collaborative efforts by championing innovation, encouraging cross-cultural conversations and deepening engagement with contemporary art across the group and its stakeholders.

As we embark on a busy season, we look forward to seeing you soon at our events.
