The art assembly

The Art Assembly is an affiliation of major international art fairs with a particular focus on the Asia Pacific region comprising Taipei Dangdai, India Art Fair, Sydney Contemporary, PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai and the forthcoming ART SG and Tokyo Gendai. It represents a joint initiative between three of the world’s leading art fair organisers headed by Sandy Angus, Tim Etchells and Magnus Renfrew. The Assembly’s member fairs provide an important meeting place for the local and international art worlds and act as regional focal points for creative and commercial exchange. Informed by a deep-rooted understanding of the local market, each event is tailored to its unique orientation.

The Art Assembly aims to drive innovation, deepen engagement with contemporary art and encourage cross-cultural conversations. It achieves this by strengthening collaboration and promoting knowledge and resource sharing across the group. The Assembly pulls together decades’ worth of experience, expertise, and an extensive global network of contacts and assets, to the benefit of its member fairs, galleries and audiences

Our Next Fair

PHOTOFAIRS | Shanghai has established itself as Asia’s leading contemporary art fair dedicated to photography and image-based artworks. With its dynamic line-up of galleries from across Asia, Europe and North America, PHOTOFAIRS | Shanghai has become a crossroads for international collectors, museum curators and new buyers, in search of exciting work not yet seen in Paris, New York, and London.

PHOTOFAIRS has witnessed a widening embrace of the photographic medium in China since launching in 2014 – four major museums dedicated to photography have opened and photography exhibitions in China have increased by 250%.
