Singapore Contemporary Art Show Pte Ltd announced the launch of a major new contemporary art fair to be held in Singapore January 21 – 24, 2016, at the Suntec Convention and Exhibition Centre. The show, to be known as Singapore Contemporary, is an important addition to Singapore’s vibrant and growing art scene.
Held at the same time as Art Stage Singapore and a week of gallery presentations and public projects, Singapore Contemporary showcases the missing and much desired mid-tier art market with works ranging from S$10,000 to S$100,000 and up.
The inaugural edition of Singapore Contemporary will feature two special art projects. “Artist Dialogues” comprises a curated series of solo artist exhibits by a gallery or artist. This will provide the opportunity for collectors and art buyers to meet the artist, allowing for conversations that share insights and inspirations for the works featured.
“China Encounters” offers a series of presentations by selected galleries from across China. Many of the exhibited artists are accomplished in China, but have only occasionally been seen overseas. Singapore Contemporary will showcase these ground-breaking Chinese gallery exhibits that focus on works from some of the most talked about and promising talent, and also importantly those with investment potential.
Singapore Contemporary is organized by the same company behind the popular Asia Contemporary Art Show, held twice yearly in Spring and Fall in Hong Kong since 2012. The organizer also produces Asia Contemporary Art Buyer (www.asiacontemporaryart.com), a leading art website for the region.
