Art Stage Singapore 2016
Singapore, 09 April 2015 – Art Stage Singapore, the flagship art fair of Southeast Asia, will kick off the 2016 international visual arts calendar with its sixth edition from 21 January to 24 January 2016 (Vernissage on 20 January) at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre.
Art Stage Singapore is the leading contemporary art event of Southeast Asia that brings together galleries from across Asia featuring established and emerging contemporary artists from the region and beyond. Recognised for its innovative concept as well as its museum-like sales exhibitions, Art Stage Singapore 2016 will once again be the place to discover the vibrant and diverse art scenes of Southeast Asia.
The highly successful fifth edition of Art Stage Singapore 2015 had attracted a total of 51,000 visitors over its five day run. The fair also closed on stronger than ever sales. Art Stage Singapore is the catalyst for the creation of the Singapore Art Week that presents over 100 art events – an initiative led by the National Arts Council, in partnership with the Singapore Tourism Board and Economic Development Board, of which the Fair is the pillar event. Art Stage Singapore 2016 will once again firmly place Singapore on the global art map, bolstering the city-state’s position as the leading centre of contemporary art in the Asian region.
