Art Stage Singapore will be held at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre from the 16th to the 19th of January 2014. This year the fair has a new format, a strong showing of new and returning galleries and a comprehensive outreach and art education programme. Art Stage Singapore 2014 reinforces the city-state’s position as a leading centre of contemporary art in the Asian region.
The fourth edition of Art Stage Singapore introduces eight country and regional Platforms, offering an immersive and comprehensive experience of contemporary Asian. The Platforms showcase 70 projects from Asia Pacific, presented in a museum-like exhibition layout. Art Stage Singapore collaborates with leading international curators in selecting and curating the artworks for each of these country and regional Platforms; the Platform curators are Aaron Seeto (Australia), Charles Merewether (Central Asia), Huang Du (China), Bose Krishnamachari (India), Mami Kataoka (Japan), Kim Sung Won (Korea) and Rudy Tseng (Taiwan). All artists exhibiting artworks at the Platform exhibitions are represented by their respective galleries.
The Southeast Asia Platform is the largest platform and will present 31 works from the region. Featured artists in the Southeast Asia Platform include Jane Lee (Sundaram Tagore Gallery), Jeremy Sharma (Michael Janssen Singapore/Berlin), and Donna Ong and Robert Zhao Renhui (Primo Marella Gallery) from Singapore; Victor Balanon (Artinformal) and Maria Taniguchi (Silverlens) from the Philippines; and Manit Kantasak (Whitespace Gallery Bangkok) from Thailand and Anida Yoeu Ali (JavaArts) from Cambodia.
