Art Stage Singapore 2017

“We have to realize that  we  are  living  in  dramatically  changing  times.  The world economy is in crisis, politics is in crisis, society is in crisis and all  this  is  clearly  affecting  the  art  market.  This means we can no longer sell art based only on price. We have to be clear that art can no longer be seen as mere merchandise or commodity.  We have to look at art for what it really is.  In essence, it  is  a  piece  of  culture.  Everyone in the art market - dealers, galleries, even the artists and especially the art fair – will need to reflect on what that means for them. They have to react and go in new directions and cannot continue as they did in the past. For Art Stage Singapore, it means very clearly that we have to focus even more on content and to show art in context,” says Lorenzo Rudolf, Founder and President, Art Stage Singapore.

The seventh edition of Art Stage Singapore opens from the 12 to 15 January 2017 at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre.

 Here’s a quick look at some of the artwork that will be a part of Art Stage Singapore 2017. Stay with us for regular updates.
