More than 15,000 visitors walked through the 15th edition of Affordable Art Fair Singapore last week, with 2,000 pieces of artworks sold, totaling to a whopping SGD $4.5 million in art sale, the fair announced. The numbers are stronger than the last fair, which was held in 2019 before the COVID-19 pandemic.
Alan Koh, Singapore Fair Director, said:
“We are heartened by the high visitor turnout and strong sales from this comeback fair, the first year since its return from 2019. After a three-year hiatus, it was such a pleasure to witness the joy and enthusiasm from our visitors, participating galleries, and artists. We are honored to reconnect and engage our guests with art and are delighted to support the art-loving public to find art for their homes.”
This year’s fair was held from 18-20 November at the F1 Pit Building. It hosted 80 local and international galleries, showcasing thousands of artworks by more than 650 artists. Of the galleries participating, more than 35% showed for the first time, delivering on the brand’s winning formula of consistently presenting fresh content, showcasing new artists, and cementing the event’s special place in the local art scene.
