Start 2023 on a high note with ART SG, Southeast Asia’s largest ever art fair, bringing together over 150 leading art galleries from around the world.

The spotlight will shine on Singapore from 12-15 January 2023 with the launch of ART SG, a new international art fair for Singapore and Southeast Asia. At this event, over 150 leading galleries from around the world will convene at the Marina Bay Saunds Expo and Convention Centre.

Presented by Founding and Lead Partner UBS, and organized by The Art Assembly, ART SG offers a meeting point in Southeast Asia for collectors around the world to gather in one of the world’s most dynamic cultural landscapes. As a gateway to the region, Singapore prides itself as a nexus for the region’s wide collector base, allowing them to connect with artists, curators, as well as cultural stakeholders.

Speaking of the upcoming event, Magnus Renfrew, Co-Founder, ART SG, shares, “The inaugural ART SG will showcase unmissable presentations from leading regional and global galleries. The different sectors across the fair demonstrate the scale and quality of Asia’s cultural landscape, where international audiences can experience the best contemporary art from Southeast Asia and around the world. We are thrilled to be working with two leading curators this year, Gridithya Gaweewong and Cosmin Costinas, who will bring together some of the most exciting creative voices in today’s international contemporary art community.”

Adding on, Suyin Yang, Fair Director, ART SG, says, “We are truly excited to celebrate the rich diversity of art not only from Singapore and Southeast Asia, but from all corners of the world. From new modalities of painting to contemporary practice in sculpture, installations and stimulating conceptual works, as well as experimentations in technology-driven art, we hope the inaugural edition of ART SG will provide collectors, galleries, and art-lovers alike a vital opportunity for discovery, exchange and discourse.”

During the event, visitors can look forward to exceptional artworks from the region and beyond. Aside from the main GALLERIES sector, ART SG will also present FOCUS, which is a contextualized sector that features galleries presenting solo or duo artist programs, or curated thematic presentations. Meanwhile, FUTURES is a sector dedicated to young galleries (under the age of six years) presenting specially created presentations for ART SG. Finally, REFRAME will feature galleries that deal with art engaged with, made, or presented using digital technology, which include digital painting, augmented or virtual reality, NFTs, and more.
