“Art Stage Singapore is Southeast Asia’s flagship contemporary art fair where the world comes to Singapore to discover art and artists from the entire Asia. As Asia’s most innovative fair, Art Stage Singapore continues to have a focus on Southeast Asia, presenting the region’s energy and dynamic creativity. We are delighted that our initiatives have drawn international attention to contemporary art from Southeast Asia and that Art Stage Singapore has become the most vibrant meeting point not only for buyers and sellers, but especially also for artists and curators,” says Lorenzo Rudolf, Founder and Fair Director, Art Stage Singapore.
