In a very troubled world contemporary art might seem to have an uncertain relevance. At ACAF we feel quite the opposite and with this in mind we are again exhibiting at Contemporary Istanbul to bring works of Chinese artists to art enthusiasts in Turkey. Our exhibition ‘Standing Together - Looking Inward’ has its own relevance but it also stands as in solidarity with the arts community of Turkey in what are very troubled times. This is our third time at the Contemporary Istanbul art fair and over the past two exhibitions the artists whose work we have exhibited have been taken to heart by art enthusiasts as well as collectors. Broadening the international awareness and collector base for our artists is one of the main focuses of ACAF. Contemporary Istanbul 2017 runs between 13th and 17th September 2017.
ACAF is excited to announce a renewed community focus for our arts residency program. We are calling for artists with a specific interest in working with communities to contribute to ACAF’s very successful ARTS CAN DO program. ARTS CAN DO is an art based education project which aims to help disadvantaged children reach their full potential by developing life skills and confidence through involvement in art.
ACAF presents a selection of works created by students and artists participating in our ARTS CAN DO program based at the Shanghai Jiu Qian Volunteer Centre Song Jiang District Supplementary School, a special educational school dedicated to working with children with special needs and disability. The exhibition will give visitors an insight into the ARTS CAN DO program and explore the current work of recent ACAF resident artists, Brenton Mark Rossow, Kriss Wong, Mónica Ferreras, Sophie Cape, Zhang Liangxi and Zhang Yi.
