Singapore Contemporary is hosting its first ever art fair at Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre — featuring an astonishing 3,000 art works from 15 countries.
The Singapore Contemporary Art Show will debut its first ever art fair with a massive presentation of 3,000 art works from 65 exhibitors and installation art by 14 artists. Themed “A World of Art”, this three-day extravaganza will see participating galleries come together to represent 15 countries from all over the world.
Happening at Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre, the art fair will open with a Vernissage for VIPs on 21 January 2016. It will be subsequently available for public viewing from Friday 22 January 2016, to Sunday 24 January 2016.
Suntec’s 6,000-square-meter space will be bustling with spectacular art works contributed by galleries from countries including Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand; Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, South Korea, Japan, Australia; the United Kingdom, France, Italy and Russia. These exquisite pieces are curated and created exclusively for the show.
Notable art works to look out for are “Our Lady Phoenix”, a portrait of Singapore-born Adelaide City Lady Mayoress Genevieve Theseira-Haese, by renowned Australian artist Emma Hack, and “Singapore Sling” by British ink-pen artist Jeff Murray.
Show Director Douwe Cramer enthuses and reveals exciting activities awaiting visitors, “This is an exceptionally interesting show – most of the artworks have never been seen in Singapore before, and many are artists who are just starting to break through on the international stage, winning prestigious prizes and achieving success at auction.
We think Singaporeans and overseas visitors here for Singapore Art Week are going to love it! And all visitors are invited to join an extensive program of complimentary tours, live painting demonstrations, and a fabulous children’s program.”
