Young Art Kaohsiung 2020

About Young Art Kaohsiung
Young Art Kaohsiung, first staged in 2015, is an event aspired to break the barriers between great expositions and small one-artist solo shows, presenting a grand art fair comprised of artists’ solo exhibitions, an artistic flash mob fair. Young Art Kaohsiung differs from the other types of exposition made of commercial galleries, but comprises a group of artists who do not have commercial gallery representation. It relaxes the application restrictions and lowers the approval threshold, providing a platform of more creative freedom for artists to make their works of art. 
Not only does Young Art Kaohsiung discover and champion young talents, but it also aims at providing a sales platform of more variety as well as a stage where emerging artists can present themselves in a more liberal and open way, furthering the development of arts market in South of Taiwan.
