The fair, the biggest in Asia, will include 215 exhibition booths in three halls covering 22,000 square meters in the Shanghai Mart.


Exhibition halls 1 and 3 will be reserved for galleries where visitors can enjoy masterpieces from artists such as Chinese painter Zhang Daqian, Wen Huaisha and Chen Yifei, while works by foreign talents like Spanish artist Salvador Dali will also be displayed at the fair.


To encourage more young talents, Exhibition Hall 2 will hold the Emerging Artists Exhibition to show the works of art youth selected from countries across Asia. This is the second time the fair has held a youth exhibition, which was well received last year.
