SINGAPORE (15 June 2022) – ART SG, the new international art fair for Singapore and Southeast Asia, will launch its inaugural edition in Singapore on 12 – 15 January 2023 (VIP Preview 11 January 2023) at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre. Presented by Founding and Lead Partner UBS and organized by The Art Assembly, ART SG will bring together over 150 leading galleries from around the world, marking the launch of the first fair of such scale and international significance in the region. ART SG will offer a meeting point in Southeast Asia for collectors from the region and beyond to convene and engage with one of the world’s most dynamic cultural landscapes.
As a key hub within the Southeast Asia region, home to some of the fastest growing economies in the world, Singapore’s status as a leading centre of wealth is further accentuated by its rapidly developing cultural scene. This has created an ideal nexus for the region’s extensive and knowledgeable collector base to gather and connect with artists, curators and other cultural stakeholders. ART SG will further capitalise on the city’s position at the forefront of technological innovation by highlighting new experimentations in digital art and works on the blockchain, alongside the presentation of internationally renowned galleries together for the first time in Singapore.
“As Southeast Asia’s most selective and largest art fair to date, the launch of ART SG will create a defining moment in Asia’s cultural landscape and shine a spotlight on Singapore. The scale and caliber of our inaugural exhibitor list demonstrates a strong commitment and shared belief in the importance of the art market in the region. With the support of our exceptional partners, stakeholders, Advisory Group and team, ART SG will be a new platform with global significance on the cultural landscape to bring the international community to Singapore each January to experience the best of contemporary art from Southeast Asia and around the world,” said Magnus Renfrew, Co-Founder, ART SG.
