The seventh edition of Art Stage Singapore will return from 12 to 15 January 2017 (Vernissage on 11 January) with the second Southeast Asia Forum and regional and international galleries presenting artists from across Asia and the world.
Featuring more than 120 galleries from 27 countries, three quarters of the upcoming exhibitors are returning galleries.
The second Southeast Asia Forum, titled Net Present Value: Art, Capital, Futures, focuses on capitalism as its theme and direct attention to questions surrounding the values of art, imagination, and progress, and the price of doing business as usual amidst the changing dynamics of the international capitalist system.
Art Stage Singapore 2017 also presents the Collectors' Stage, a collaborative project with The Artling featuring artworks from the exclusive private collection of 6 leading Singapore-based collectors. This is a revival of the highly successful Collectors' Stage first held in 2011, and an echo of the Collectors' Show presented at Art Stage Jakarta's debut in August 2016.
