CIGE fair in Beijing

The CIGE fair in Beijing showed less exhibitors this year but quality was maintained on a high level. On the opening night, many well known artists like Zhang Xiaogang, Fan Lijun (see above) and Zeng Fanzhi showed up for support of the fair and other young artists they curate or support.
This new trend that the established artists help to curate young emerging artists is commendable for the industry and show that they support the new generation of artists.

At Ullens Center, Yang Shaobin supported a new artist with name Kong Lingnan that paints with a illuminating effect. The fair showed 6 other of her artworks and all sold out.

The show was strong and the verdict was still undecided if this fair or the Art Beijing 6 days later would be the preferred one. Comments on the other fair will follow.

Another large painting by Zhang Xiaogang was displayed,  measured around 10 meter long and 4 meter high. Very impressive!
