Running four days from 25 to 28 January 2018 at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre, ART STAGE Singapore closed its eighth edition yesterday, January 28. The Fair brought to Singapore a strong international art community including collectors and leading artists. The fair saw stronger sales results in all price categories. Galleries reported brisk sales and noted numerous reservations made by buyers and collectors from Southeast Asia, Asia, Australia, the Middle East, Europe and the United States.
“I am very pleased with the Fair this year. ART STAGE has exerted a prodigious influence on Singapore’s contemporary artistic life. It has become the anchor for the city’s annual art week, and Sundaram Tagore Gallery is proud to have been associated with the Fair since its inception,” said Mr Sundaram Tagore, gallery director of Sundaram Tagore Gallery.
“Based on the opening day, the sales were stronger than last year. We have sold a painting by Indonesian painter Yunizar, as well as the up-and-coming Erizal As, and some works by younger artists who are new additions to the Gajah Gallery family,” said Mr Jasdeep Sandhu, gallery director of Gajah Gallery.
ART STAGE will return with its sister edition, ART STAGE Jakarta at Sheraton Grand Jakarta Gandaria City from 7 to 9 September 2018.
