Kicking off the Asia art calendar, Singapore Contemporary (January 21-24, 2016) is an important addition to Singapore’s vibrant and growing art scene, and will be held at the same time as Art Stage Singapore and a week of gallery presentations and public projects. The new art fair is seen as a game changer, to add much-needed diversity to Singapore’s art market during an important period of the year and will complement other art events and projects held in the city at the same time
Spread over 6,000+ square meters at Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre, Singapore Contemporary presents a vibrant collection of artworks – investment-grade art with a strong secondary market and auction following, plus works by some of the world’s most interesting and promising artists. The scope includes original paintings, limited editions, sculpture and photography, also video and digital art. Singaporean and international collectors and art buyers will see works from career artists, typically priced from S$10,000 to S$100,000 and up.
The inaugural edition of Singapore Contemporary will feature two special art projects. “Artist Dialogues” comprises a curated series of solo artist exhibits by a gallery or artist. This will provide the opportunity for collectors and art buyers to meet the artists, allowing for conversations that share insights and inspirations for the works featured.
“China Encounters offers a series of presentations by selected galleries from across China. Many of the exhibited artists are accomplished in China, but have only occasionally been seen overseas. Singapore Contemporary will showcase these ground-breaking Chinese gallery exhibits that focus on works from some of the most talked about and promising talent, and also importantly those with investment potential.
Singapore Contemporary is organized by the same people behind the popular Asia Contemporary Art Show, held twice yearly in Spring and Fall in Hong Kong since 2012. The organiser also produces Asia Contemporary Art Buyer (www.asiacontemporaryart.com), a leading art website for the region.
