“3331 Art Fair 2015 -Various Collectors’ Prizes‒” will be held at 3331 Arts Chiyoda over 9 days from March 21st to 29th, 2015. And SHUUN of Clark Gallery + SHIFT who has held his first solo exhibition “ANIMALS” will participate.
Last year’s first holding of the art fair succeeded in gathering a total of 2000 visitors, resulting in 122 purchases from among 300 exhibited works. In distinguishing itself from other art fairs, 3331 Art Fair involves nearly 60 prominent contemporary art collectors and key people from diverse fields to award a “Collectors Prize”* when purchasing a work. New this year, participation is also extended to the audience who can award their favorite artist through purchase.
Throughout the exhibition period, both the awardees and a comment from their selector will be made visible in the venue. In maintaining transparency we hope that “collection beginners” will be fostered, encouraging them to take the first step towards art investment. Proposing another level to art appreciation, the fair encourages those who remained “viewers” to involve themselves further with artwork that catches their eye through the act of investing.
In collaboration with numerous galleries and an external selection committee, a unique lineup of 86 artists are gathered under one roof to present engaging paintings, sculptures, photographs, moving image and more. The works are sure to offer a glimpse into a valuable character of contemporary art – a compelling, fresh sensibility and what is truly here-and-now.
In what will become the second year of an art fair like none other, our efforts to push the boundary of the contemporary art scene will continue.
