“Since our inception in 2011, Art Stage Singapore has always endeavoured to bring the international art world to Singapore and worked, in partnership with local institutions, towards developing Singapore as a world-class, international art destination. Art Stage Singapore is now a major part of the global art calendar with many international galleries, collectors and art professionals making their way to Singapore in mid-January to view some of the best art from around the Asian region and the world,” says Mr Lorenzo Rudolf, Founder and Fair Director, Art Stage Singapore. “Today, it is to our great delight that Art Stage Singapore has since become a catalyst to the multitude of art events and activities happening in the same week, including the initiation of Singapore Art Week. It is definitely rewarding to see the local art scene benefiting from the many international visitors that we bring in,” Mr Rudolf adds.
