Guardian Fine Art Asia, The New Sophisticated Fair  Brings Global Arts to Beijing this May

As Fine Art Asia celebrates its landmark 10th edition, this year’s breaking news is the launch of a new event: GFAA (Guardian Fine Art Asia), which will take place from 28 May to 1 June 2014 at China National Convention Centre. This long-anticipated development is the result of a fruitful collaboration between Guardian Beijing, a well-established art organisation in China, and Fine Art Asia.

International cultural and business platform, CIFTIS
Guardian Fine Art Asia, held in association with the world-renowned China Beijing International Fair for Trade in Services (CIFTIS), is certain to command international interest from across the art market. The CIFTIS fair will be organised by the Ministry of Commerce of the PRC and the People’s Government of Beijing Municipality, and supported by The World Trade Organisation. The 3rd edition of CIFTIS consists of over 30 sectors of professional services, in which GFAA (Guardian Fine Art Asia) is the first and important part of the cultural trade sector being staged.

Two professional arts organisations, one goal
GFAA will combine the strengths of Guardian Art Center’s vast network of collectors in Mainland China and Fine Art Asia’s professional expertise in organising art fair of international standard with its established global network. For its debut in China, GFAA will introduce 20-30 world-renowned galleries and feature museum-quality pieces from both China and the West. On display will be some exquisite collections, ranging from both Asian and European antiquities, international fine art jewellery and timepieces, to antique silver, European design and decorative arts, and 20th century Chinese ink paintings.

Participating galleries
Internationally acclaimed galleries and art experts are eager to present the stunning and ornate works of art at the top of their fields, including Kai Yin Lo (HK), Koopman Rare Art (London), Santos (London), Vanderven Oriental Art (Netherlands), David Aaron Ancient Arts (London), Robert Hall (London), Toulouse Antiques (USA), Bogh-Art (Geneva), Gladwell & Patterson (London).

A feast of art curated by experts
At GFAA, academic art lectures and guided tours will be held by leading art experts, to promote art appreciation and cultural exchanges, as well as to encourage business collaborations within the art market.

“It is our honour to co-present GFAA (Guardian Fine Art Asia), an expansion of Fine Art Asia with excellent support from art experts and professionals in Beijing. Deemed as the leading international fine art platform in Asia, our mission is to bring venerated Western fine art pieces and aesthetics to Chinese audiences in a five-day exhibition and accompanying academic programme. I am looking forward to launching the show in late May.” said
Mr. Calvin Hui, Co-Chairman and Director of Fine Art Asia.
