Singapore’s newest art fair, “Singapore Contemporary”, offers 50 pairs of VIP Invitations for the first 50 applicants. The show opens with an exclusive Vernissage on Thursday January 21st, followed by three days open to the public on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, January 22nd, 23rd and 24th.
The inaugural edition of the show, with the theme “A World of Art,” presents more than 3,000 works of art from 65 exhibitors and installation art by 14 artists. Exhibiting galleries are from Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, South Korea, Japan, Australia, the United Kingdom, France, Italy and Russia.
Held across a stunning 6,000-square-meter space at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre, Singapore Contemporary unveils a number of works that have been specially created for the Show. Well-known Australian artist Emma Hack has created a portrait commission of Singapore-born Adelaide City Lady Mayoress Genevieve Theseira-Haese, “Our Lady Phoenix.” Proceeds raised from the sale of the work will be donated to the Eurasian Association of Singapore. British ink-pen artist Jeff Murray presents “Singapore Sling” – works fusing Singapore’s natural beauty with the city’s state-of-the-art architecture. Renowned Korean sculptor Jang Seunghyo (known as Sho Jang) has created an amazing six-part installation for the show – comprising hand-made tiles, bearing sculptures of “Art Blossom” chess pieces and looked down upon by two huge “art” chandeliers.
Emma Hack will also conduct a live body-painting exhibition for the opening of the Show on Thursday 21st, taking eight hours to transform her muse with head-to-toe paint.
