ABOUT ART STAGE SINGAPORE

WE ARE ASIA.

Introduction

Art Stage Singapore is the leading Asian art fair connecting the world to the best of Asian contemporary art. With a deep understanding of Asia’s dynamic visual arts scene, Art Stage Singapore presents the diversity of contemporary art rising from the region. At the crossroads among Southeast Asia, China, India, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand, Art Stage Singapore is also the catalyst for igniting heightened market activity in the the entire Southeast Asia region, attracting the world’s most influential private art collectors, corporate buyers and VIPs.

Galleries

Presenting handpicked galleries from Asian and Western countries that complement each other, Art Stage Singapore promotes dialogue not only between Asia and the West but also amongst the countries of the Asian region as well. Art Stage Singapore’s consistent support of Asian galleries, artists and art practices positions the Fair as the region’s international voice, representing the interests of Asian contemporary art in the global arena.

With its strong Asian identity and its support of art scenes in the region, Art Stage Singapore cooperates with Asian galleries, artists and collectors to create a distinctive partnership and networking platform.  Art Stage Singapore features a three to one ratio of Asian to western galleries. Asia is often perceived as a seamless and interconnected region. The fact is, however, that the art scenes of Asia remain fragmented and disconnected from one another. Art Stage Singapore is bridging this divide with the introduction of an innovative new format that allows for a diverse, considered and comprehensive presentation of the best contemporary art from Asia.

South East Asia Forum

With a special focus on Southeast Asian art scenes (Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar), Art Stage Singapore presents the largest international showcases of Southeast Asian contemporary art to date. Art Stage Singapore is not only the ‘agora’ or forum for the galleries and collectors but also the rendezvous point for collectors, artists, curators and gallerists. It facilitates and encourages discourse on Asia’s contemporary art scenes, and brings art specialists and enthusiasts together, under one roof.With a special focus on Southeast Asian art scenes (Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar), Art Stage Singapore presents the largest international showcases of Southeast Asian contemporary art to date. Art Stage Singapore is not only the ‘agora’ or forum for the galleries and collectors but also the rendezvous point for collectors, artists, curators and gallerists.

PRESIDENT

Lorenzo RUDOLF

Lorenzo Rudolf began his career in the art world when he was appointed Director of Art Basel in January 1991.

He created a new art fair concept which transformed Art Basel from a classical trade show to the flagship event of the international art world.

It was the first time that an art event,

  • built its brand as the quality label of the art market worldwide,
  • developed a strategic partnership with a top tier financial institution (UBS) and created a new model of co-operation based on mutual support, and
  • recognized the art collector and (potential) wealthy art buyer as a crucial client and introduced an extended VIP programme.

During his time at the helm of Art Basel, it became the most important event in the global art scene as well as a unique, international social and lifestyle platform. As the next strategic step, he created and launched Art Basel Miami Beach – the fair’s successful expansion into the increasingly dominant American market.

In 2000, after a successful decade helming Art Basel, the highly esteemed Frankfurt Book Fair appointed Lorenzo Rudolf as its new Director. After three years in the communications and publishing industry, he returned to the art world.

In 2007, Lorenzo co-founded and directed the first international contemporary art fair in Asia, ShContemporary in Shanghai, China. Understanding that Asia deserves a stronger platform in the international art arena, Lorenzo created Art Stage Singapore in 2010 and the fair has since grown from strength to strength.

Art Stage Singapore has carved its own Asian identity as an international fair with a focus on contemporary Asian art.
