“Shell Economics” Art Fair In the 21st century, art has become an important economic asset, as valuable, if not more valuable, than many. These days, art is increasingly recognized as a financially stable commodity that can be used all around the world. But what exactly is art and how can we determine its real value?

With these questions in mind, we hope to create exhibitions where the participants can exchange artwork with something beyond currency. This is the first time in Shanghai it will be free and open to all. Now, let’s see what the artists and the visitors make of it!

Exchange rule:Each participant could receive voting paper. Select your favorite, write down the art work info, exchange contents and your contact (Weibo/Email/Tel) and put it into voting box. We will update the exchange progress on the Sina Weibo and Homepage. The exchange will be arranged later after the activity.
