Yishu is delighted to be a media partner of Art Stage Singapore, which opens from January 22-25, 2015.

About the Fair

Art Stage Singapore will take place from January 22 to 25, 2015 (Vernissage on January 21) at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre. The flagship art fair of Southeast Asia, Art Stage Singapore kicks off the region’s annual visual arts calendar, connecting the world to the best of Asian contemporary art. As the region’s leading visual arts event, Art Stage Singapore will present a diverse selection of galleries from across Asia featuring established and emerging contemporary artists from the region and beyond. The fair’s strong network of contacts with the region’s galleries, artists and art professionals and its deep understanding of international and regional art markets have defined Art Stage Singapore as the major platform to discover and interact with contemporary art from Asia.

Into its fifth year, Art Stage Singapore leads the Singapore Art Week as its pillar event. In 2011, the second edition of Art Stage Singapore presented, alongside the fair, several fringe visual art activities that created a festive ambiance and atmosphere celebrating contemporary art. This allowed international and local visitors alike to not only visit the fair but to partake of the many activities that were organized around it. Since then, Art Stage Singapore has become the catalyst for the creation of the Singapore Art Week conceived by the Singapore Tourism Board to become the definitive season for visual arts in Singapore and the region. In 2014, over 70 visual art activities were independently organized around Art Stage Singapore, a testament to the fair’s key role in the region’s visual arts sector.

The Voice for Asian Contemporary Art

Art Stage Singapore’s consistent support of the region’s galleries, artists and art practices has positioned it to be the region’s international voice, representing interests of Asian contemporary art in the global arena. More than a market platform, Art Stage Singapore is the definitive fair for discourse and exchange of ideas on the ever-evolving and diverse contemporary art scenes from the region. Past participating artists from the fair include Chinese artist Zhang Huan, British sculptor Antony Gromley, Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, American photographer David LaChapelle, Filipino artist Ronald Ventura, Malaysian artist Sooshie Sulaiman, Indian artist Jittish Kallat, Indonesian artists Jumaldi Alfi, Entang Wiharso, Thai artist Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Singaporean artists Han Sai Por, Jane Lee, Donna Ong, and many others.
