2017 is looking good so far, especially with the seventh edition of Art Stage Singapore slated to return to our shores from 12 to 15 January 2017. Part of the Singapore Art Week, Art Stage 2017 features 173 exhibitors from 33 countries.
This year’s instalment introduces Collectors’ Stage 2017, an exhibition curated by Enin Supriyanto in partnership with The Artling. Based on the theme Expose, the exhibition draws from the diverse private collections of six Singapore-based collectors – Hady Ang, Jim Amberson, Michael Tay and Talenia Phua Gajardo (MT Collection), Michelangelo and Lourdes Samson, Kenneth Tan and a sixth collector who wishes to remain anonymous.
Additionally, the leading Asian art fair brings a stronger emphasis on Southeast Asian Identity this year, playing host to the second Southeast Asia Forum. Exhibition highlights include works by artists Jim Allen Abel, Kent Chan, Jenny Holzer, Ivan Lam, François Roche and Yudi Sulistyo – among many others.
To gear you up for Art Stage 2017, we have curated 5 artworks from Southeast Asian artists worth checking out this January.
Tickets are priced at S$32 and S$64 for a 1-day pass and 4-day pass respectively, excluding booking fee.
