Asia Dreams - - CALENDAR SINGAPORE -

The sev­enth edi­tion of Art Stage Sin­ga­pore, South­east Asia's flag­ship art fair, runs from 12th to 15th Jan­uary, 2017 with the sec­ond South­east Asia Fo­rum and re­gional and in­ter­na­tional gal­leries pre­sent­ing artists from across Asia and the world. Art Stage Sin­ga­pore con­tin­ues to lead with in­no­va­tive fair con­tent, en­gag­ing with and ad­dress­ing con­tem­po­rary is­sues per­ti­nent to world af­fairs to­day. Beyond a mar­ket plat­form, Art Stage Sin­ga­pore plays a key role in the eco-sys­tem of con­tem­po­rary art in Sin­ga­pore and South­east Asia, not only in de­vel­op­ing and bridg­ing in­di­vid­ual re­gional art mar­kets, but also in cre­at­ing a fo­rum for the ex­change of ideas that are crit­i­cal to un­der­stand­ing the eco­nomic and so­cio-po­lit­i­cal is­sues of the day.

Art Stage Sin­ga­pore, the flag­ship art fair of South­east Asia, kicks off the in­ter­na­tional art sea­son ev­ery Jan­uary with the very best of Asian con­tem­po­rary art.

The Fo­rum's ex­hi­bi­tion sur­veys the im­pacts of eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment on cul­tures, be­liefs, so­cial re­la­tions and daily life in South­east Asia as these coun­tries race to es­tab­lish their place in the league of global economies. Through the works of so­cially en­gaged artists, many from the re­gion, the ex­hi­bi­tion em­pha­sizes the im­por­tance of cul­ti­vat­ing al­ter­na­tive forms of cap­i­tal and con­di­tions for the evo­lu­tion of so­ci­eties in an in­creas­ingly com­plex global en­vi­ron­ment. The va­ri­ety of es­tab­lished and up-and-com­ing artists fea­tured through­out the fair is sure to make this an event you won't want to miss!
