Singapore Art Fair will make its debut at Suntec City from 27 to 30 November 2014, focusing on the rich artistic offerings of the ME.NA.SA regions (Middle East, North Africa, South & South-East Asia).
The inaugural edition will feature 60 galleries from around the world, 20 solo show booths from artists who present their work internationally for the first time, and thematic platforms coordinated by renowned experts such as Catherine David and Janine Maamari.
Founded by Laure d’Hauteville, Singapore Art Fair is organised by Orchilys Pte Ltd, a new joint venture company set up by MP Singapore, a professional exhibition and conference organiser headquartered in Singapore, and CEDRALYS, organiser of the highly successful Beirut Art Fair.
Mr Jason Ng, Executive Director of MP Singapore says: “We believe that there is room for a dedicated art fair like ours in Singapore as it is the ideal cultural gateway between Asia and the Middle East. With its rapidly developing art scene, Singapore is poised to become an important arts hub.”
The Singapore Art Fair aims to reinforce Singapore’s role as the newest cultural destination at the heart of Asia, and a meeting point for new collectors, galleries, art patrons, artists and cultural institutions to exchange ideas.
