Art Beijing is an art fair located in Beijing that serves the most art institutions in China, will hold its 13th annual art fair in Beijing on April 29th, 2018. It is constantly making adjustment to its own exhibition structure based on the established pattern of the art market, as well as its rich experience in running its fairs and exploring new methods to develop in such a way that best suits the market in China. Based on the core concept of "Locally based and Asia-oriented", Art Beijing 2018 will continue with the scale and pattern of the previous exhibition by integrating into it the country’s significant weight in domestic art to fully demonstrate the Chinese art market centered in Beijing. In addition to four sections including contemporary art, classic art, design art and public art, the "Hi21", a young art market brand has also been added to the fair to demonstrate the youth art unit.
Masterpieces by two of Southeast Asia’s greatest painters – Juan Luna and Raden Saleh – were brought together by National Gallery Singapore in an unprecedented showcase.
