Art Stage Singapore is the leading Asian art fair connecting the world to the best of Asian contemporary art. With a deep understanding of Asia’s dynamic visual arts scene, Art Stage Singapore presents the diversity of contemporary art rising from the region. At the crossroads among Southeast Asia, China, India, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand, Art Stage Singapore is also the catalyst for igniting heightened market activity in the the entire Southeast Asia region, attracting the world’s most influential private art collectors, corporate buyers and VIPs.
Presenting handpicked galleries from Asian and Western countries that complement each other, Art Stage Singapore promotes dialogue not only between Asia and the West but also amongst the countries of the Asian region as well. Art Stage Singapore’s consistent support of Asian galleries, artists and art practices positions the Fair as the region’s international voice, representing the interests of Asian contemporary art in the global arena.
With its strong Asian identity and its support of art scenes in the region, Art Stage Singapore cooperates with Asian galleries, artists and collectors to create a distinctive partnership and networking platform. Art Stage Singapore features a three to one ratio of Asian to western galleries. Asia is often perceived as a seamless and interconnected region. The fact is, however, that the art scenes of Asia remain fragmented and disconnected from one another. Art Stage Singapore is bridging this divide with the introduction of an innovative new format that allows for a diverse, considered and comprehensive presentation of the best contemporary art from Asia.

As the next strategic step, he created and launched Art Basel Miami Beach – the fair’s successful expansion into the increasingly dominant American market.
In 2000, after a successful decade helming Art Basel, the highly esteemed Frankfurt Book Fair appointed Lorenzo Rudolf as its new Director. After three years in the communications and publishing industry, he returned to the art world.
In 2007, Lorenzo co-founded and directed the first international contemporary art fair in Asia, ShContemporary in Shanghai, China. Understanding that Asia deserves a stronger platform in the international art arena, Lorenzo created Art Stage Singapore in 2010 and the fair has since grown from strength to strength.
Art Stage Singapore has carved its own Asian identity as an international fair with a focus on contemporary Asian art.
