Moods in China’s art circles always seem buoyant and optimistic, but the suspense leading up to ShContemporary, Sept. 6-9, 2007, in Shanghai has an accompanying sour aftertaste. Debuting at the Shanghai Convention Center, ShContemporary is set to leapfrog over Beijing’s more established fair scene to become China’s most cosmopolitan and not-to-be-missed art showcase. Its organizers, former Art Basel director Lorenzo Rudolf and Geneva gallerist/longtime Chinese art collector Pierre Huber, are promising not only a distilled version of the Mainland art scene for Western collectors but a real celebrity art fair for Shanghai and China, at last.
