The inaugural edition of ART SG will take place from 1 November - 3 November 2019 (preview 31 October) at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Singapore. The Fair will showcase around 60 - 70 established and experimental galleries from Singapore, Southeast Asia and the world and attract collectors and buyers from across the region in addition to the Singapore’s art loving public.
From the opening of the National Gallery Singapore, to the development of Gillman Barracks as a destination arts precinct for art buyers, to its three art schools and well-regarded Biennale, Singapore has developed a dynamic art scene and ART SG will create an annual moment to attract collectors from across the region. It is planned that the Fair will have representation from all ASEAN nations. ART SG is supported by the National Arts Council (NAC), Singapore Tourism Board (STB), and the Economic Development Board (EDB).
Art SG is launched by Angus Montgomery Arts, Tim Etchells and Magnus Renfrew all of which have extensive experience of working across Asia Pacific. Tim Etchells and AngusMontgomery Arts have a long history of working in the region having established both with ART HK and Art Central in Hong Kong in addition to Sydney Contemporary and PHOTOFAIRS|Shanghai. Magnus Renfrew was founding Fair Director of both ART HK and Art Basel Hong Kong. He is Founder of ARTHQ/EVENTS and with Tim Etchells and Angus Montgomery Arts he is co founder of Taipei Dangdai as well as being the Fair Director.
