Art Stage Singapore, the flagship art fair of Southeast Asia, kicks off the international art season every January with the very best of Asian contemporary art.
It bookmarks Singapore on the map as the definitive meeting point between the diverse regional and global art scenes. The Fair is a catalyst in driving international interest in and understanding of Southeast Asian contemporary art.
Art Stage Singapore 2016 returned on 21 through 24 January (Vernissage on 20 January) with a bold new vision for contemporary art from the region. The Fair’s sixth edition continued to be innovative in market development by matchmaking segmented regional markets and encouraging dialogues about contemporary art. Through its latest programme, Art Stage Singapore 2016 referenced the Roman forum or the agora of ancient Greece, thus positioning the Fair as an intersection that facilitated not merely the exchange of art, but also of ideas.
In its 2016 edition, Art Stage Singapore introduced the Southeast Asia Forum. It emphasised the balance between art, commerce and content within larger society by taking a more focused and deeper view into broad global issues that also affect our immediate region and lives.
Title Seismograph: Sensing the City – Art in the Urban Age, the inaugural Southeast Asia Forum comprised two symbiotic parts – a ticketed selling exhibition and a series of talks that is open to the public.
