Matisse and Picasso, Haring and Basquiat, Warhol, Richter and Banksy… the year’s top-selling prints have shown a distinct preference for Modern & Contemporary works over ‘historical’ works.

Several young artists have dwarfed their estimates; Artprice takes a closer look [2021年11月05日]

On 14 October 2021, just before its prestige Contemporary Art Evening Sale in London, Sotheby’s calculated the estimated value of the canvas I’ll Have What She’s Having (2020) by Flora Yukhnovich at $80,000 – $110,000. But the work finally sold for over $3 million. Nothing justifies this result 30 times higher than the estimates, if […]

Art Taipei [2021年10月15日]

台北国际艺术博览会(10月22-25日),张逸群独家访谈 台北国际艺术博览会新任理事长张逸群就亚洲藏家举首戴目的新一届展会内容接受Artprice独家访谈。 创办于1992年的台北国际艺术博览会是亚洲资历最老的国际艺术展会。已成功举办28届的博览会是东南亚文化活动中不容错失的盛事。该盛事受到台湾艺术收藏发烧友的鼎力支持,越来越活跃的市场也它增色不少。 与世界各地许多类似的其它活动相反,去年台北国际艺术博览会面对新冠疫情没有取消或延期,而是如期举行。不过,疫情还是对2020 年的展会造成了很大影响,因为国际参展商的数量锐减。 今年如何?您已開始讓展商的密度(數量)回到疫前的水準了嗎? 其實從2020年到2021年,台灣因為人民自律以及政府的政策,讓台灣免於受到瘟疫的侵襲,但是在2020年全球還是處在大爆發的階段,展商也不敢做跨國的旅行。但2020年來台灣參展的畫廊,都獲得了非常好的成績,回國後也在其國內的畫廊業界流傳。 今年的展商數量為124家,較去年的92家有所成長,但有許多國外的畫廊仍然因為疫情與隔離的政策無法參展,因此要回到過去的展商數量,需要全球一起共同努力。 展會的主要展商是臺灣展商,這是權宜之計?臺灣畫廊的總量在近幾年有顯著成長嗎? ART TAIPEI 是全球少數由「畫廊協會」所舉辦的藝術博覽會,這意謂著博覽會能夠擁有會員的支持,這些會員也正是博覽會組成的核心,這一點在過去的27年來都沒有變過。最早從1995年開始ART TAIPEI就有國際畫廊的加入,大會都刻意透過評審機制維持50%台灣畫廊,50% 國際畫廊的參展比例。而台灣因為在亞太的金融地位以及貿易位置,在疫情前每年都吸引許多國外的畫廊前來參加台北國際藝術博覽會,從去年開始,大家發現展會的主要展商是臺灣,是因為國外的畫廊都因為疫情無法前來,這是疫情時代的正常現象,就像前幾周前剛結束的紐約軍械庫展及ART BASEL都有類似的本地化現象。所以我們不會說這是權宜之計,更多的是在疫情下每個藝術博覽會都需要面對的議題。從另外一個角度來看,此一現象也更加凸顯了在地畫廊的支持是對藝博會長久生存和成長的重要根基。 若說到台灣畫廊的總量增加是有的,根據畫廊協會的統計,其成員在2013年的時候有107家畫廊,到了2021年的時候成長為130家畫廊,8年來成長超過21%,但這是一個漸進式的成長,也反應出台灣藝術收藏的人口漸漸增長,才能支持起畫廊產業的發展。 我們能在這次博覽會看見哪些台灣象徵性的藝術家? 在ART TAIPEI不僅僅是可以看到台灣資深前輩藝術家作品例如陳澄波、廖繼春、劉國松、霍剛、林壽宇,也可以看的到台灣中堅藝術家如楊識宏這次以個展展出、李真的雕塑作品等。年輕一輩具代表性的台灣藝術家包括席時斌以及吳耿禎。 除了這些之外,ART TAIPEI最值得一提的是對台灣新銳藝術家的培育及提倡,我們與文化部合作的「MIT新人推薦特區」今年邁入第14年,每一年都在國內徵選35歲以下的年輕創作者,在ART TAIPEI的平台進行學習與畫廊合作,並接觸大量的收藏家,以此協助年輕的創作者進入藝術產業。從2020年開始,原住民委員會也借鏡這樣的模式來扶植青年藝術家,與ART TAIPEI合作,共同推展原住民的年輕藝術家,因此在2021年能夠在ART TAIPEI看見MIT新人推薦特區、原住民新銳推薦特區這兩個展區的青年藝術家。 同時今年我們也跨界與時尚合作,推出「時尚藝術特區」,媒合藝術家與時裝設計師,共同創造出結合藝術與時尚的創作,在這個特展,也能夠看到台灣藝術家與台灣服裝設計師共同碰撞的火花。 有些畫廊來自香港,而有數以十計的展商來自日本,台灣收藏家對日本藝術家有特別的喜好嗎?如果是的話,有哪些藝術家是台灣藏家特別喜歡的? 台灣位於太平洋第一島鏈的中心位置,在地理、歷史、經貿、文化上都與鄰國有密切的關係,日本是一個強大的文化輸出國,台灣自然也接納了日本來的藝術與文化;在當代藝術方面,台灣藏家喜愛世界知名的良美智、草間彌生、鹽田千春,再來是日本的「具體派」如白髮一雄,以及戰後藝術家群,新一代的藝術家有六角彩子、小松美羽、中村萌、中原千尋等代表藝術家。 AT Space還有AT Space Project,您創造了藝博會之中的小型展覽嗎?這些”space”是指什麼?我們能在裡面發現什麼呢? AT SPACE 和AT SPACE PROJECT都是指展會區域內的公共藝術,當初設立的想法是希望鼓勵展商能夠拓寬對ART TAIPEI內的公共藝術申請更多的嘗試與想像,因為公共藝術是和空間場域的結合與對話,AT SPACE指的是以往我們在展會走道上可以看的到的公共藝術裝置,而AT SPACE PROJECT則是鼓勵展商申請以新媒體藝術創作打造互動展示空間,達到沉浸式藝術體驗效果。今年比較可惜AT SPACE PROJECT沒有收到合適的申請,並沒有進一步執行,但作為第一年的創新嘗試,我們覺得已經達到拓寬展商參展思路的效果。 近來讓台灣成為亞洲藝術市場的樞鈕的原因是?台灣未來有什麼樣的強項可以發展? 台灣之所以能成為亞洲藝術市場的樞紐不外乎其地理位置優勢以及自由民主的價值體系。從古至今,台灣一直是東亞的交通要道,也經歷過西班牙、荷蘭、日本殖民管理,漸漸的使得這個小島對於不同文化的極大包容性及開放性,所有外來文化都可以在台灣落地並與本土特色融合,以另外一種方式呈現,形成具有台灣特色的文化樣貌。同時台灣也是亞洲地區少數將民主自由價值體現和落實地非常完整的地方,藝術茁壯的根基在於自由表達意志,個人和集體意識皆能找到好的平衡點,彼此理解和尊重,才能有良好的藝術交流與創作,我們認為台灣以這非常難以取代的兩點優勢,能極大吸引亞洲其他地方的畫廊、藝術家、藝術機構關注、重視並匯聚。當然除了從宏觀角度看的兩個原因外, 台灣的龐大的藝術收藏族群及普及的全民藝術教育,也很大程度促進了產業的成長與發展。近年來我們觀察到新進的藏二代陸續加入壯大了收藏的行列,影 響並多元化了收藏的趨勢和類別,更進一步強化了市場的穩定成長。與此同時,相比於其他許多亞洲國家,台灣的藝術教育普及及提倡是十分積極的,不僅僅是在教育體系中有所體現,近年來各大公私立美術館、藝文機構的建立,以及鼓勵民眾參與藝術文化活動的風氣,有利於整體藝術產業正向發展,而且這樣的風氣不只是在台北,而是在全台遍地開花涵蓋台中、高雄、台南等重要城市。上述這些原因都很好的讓台灣成為亞洲地區極為重要且不可取代的亞洲藝術市場樞紐。 地点: Taipei World Trade Center Exhibition Hall 1 地址: […]

A weakened position for London ? [2021年10月12日]

As the Hong Kong art market develops at a phenomenal pace, London is relatively less attractive than it was ten years ago.
