Contemporary Art: Art Stage Singapore 2014

The City of Singapore prepares for the return of the 4th Edition of Art Stage Singapore with galleries featuring the latest Asian art collection. Exhibited at the magnificent Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre from January 16-19, the fair will feature a new format comprising of eight country and regional platforms which will provide an experience of Asian masterpieces and art forms at their very best. Art Stage Singapore promises a holistic overview and deeper understanding of contemporary art from Asia Pacific with its newest fair component. Taking the form of curated sales exhibition, this component will be divided into country and regional platforms that will feature exciting new works by headlining and emerging artists from Southeast Asia, India, China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea and Australia.

 

Lorenzo Rudolf, Founder and Fair Director, Art Stage Singapore:

“Art Stage Singapore 2014 will demonstrate how the fair has grown into the matchmaking point for collectors, artists, gallerists, curators and art lovers in Asia.

‘WE ARE ASIA’ was a goal when I started the fair three years ago, but now it has become the fair’s true identity. Art Stage Singapore remains a loyal supporter of the promotion of contemporary art from the region by working with the best galleries and art professionals.”

Showcased in a museum-like exhibition layout, Art Stage Singapore collaborates with various art professionals such as curators and country advisers to guide the artist selection and exhibition presentation of the Platforms. Aside from the exhibits, the fair will also feature engaging talks by talks by artists and curators. Art Stage Singapore will also partner with institutions like the Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) and LASALLE College of The Arts to offer an interesting selection of panel discussion, talks and activities that will run throughout the event.

We have participated at Art Stage Singapore for the past two years. As the Asia’s premier international art fair, Art stage provides us with a fantastic platform to showcase artworks as well as to promote emerging new regional artists.
