Priding itself for veering away from the white cube format conventional for art fairs, the hotel-based boutique Art Apart Fair will bring art to the retail mall for the 8th Edition. Its upcoming edition introduce a series of six segments showcasing and selling solo and group artists artworks – all within the premises of an upscale shopping mall at Isetan Wisma Atria.
The retail space will be transformed into a cozy home ambience. This concept allows the audience to better visualise art works in their own residences “The motivation for an art fair that makes a difference for Art Apart has always been the creation of a comfortable, home-like vibe,” said fair director Rosalind Lim. “Showing art in a shopping mall with a large home style setting is the first of it’s kind in Singapore. Yes, there are art galleries in shopping malls but not furnished in a home style environment.”
The Art Apart Fair 8th Editon opening on 8th July to 28th August 2016 will be on a larger scale to encompass artworks of more than 800 art pieces created by 60 artists from the Philippines, Japan, China, Korea, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Russian, Italy, Iceland and of course, Singapore.
In the 8th edition Contemporary artworks will be matched with Vintage, retrofitted furniture, juxtaposing the new and the old. Modern and Pop Art will be selected to go with Industrial Furniture setting.
