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 2017 returned from 12 - 15 January (Vernissage on 11 January) and continued to lead with innovative fair content, engaging with and addressing contemporary issues pertinent to world affairs today.
The seventh edition of the Fair strengthened its focus on Southeast Asia. It also emphasised the importance of developing a cohesive Southeast Asian art market by bringing together individual markets of the region into a single bloc for the region to be more competitive vis-à-vis the other more developed global art markets in the West and China.
The second Southeast Asia Forum focused on the theme of capitalism - exploring the values of art, imagination and progress, and, the price of doing business as usual in the global capitalist system.
Titled Net Present Value: Art, Capital, Futures, the Forum brought together economists, business leaders, policy makers and the art community to examine, through different perspectives, challenges relating to social inequality arising from the global capitalist system.
