Who we are

Organisers

ART SG is jointly organised by three leaders in the international Art Fair industry. Tim Etchells, Sandy Angus and Magnus Renfrew have a track record of creating exceptional art fairs globally, including ART HK (now Art Basel Hong Kong) which was the first major event to put Asia and Hong Kong on the international art fair map. Most recently, the trio launched Taipei Dangdai, which held its acclaimed edition in January 2019. Tim Etchells is renowned for creating market leading trade and consumer shows around the world. Having been the driving force behind the launch of ART HK, his art fair portfolio includes Sydney Contemporary and Art Central (Hong Kong). Sandy Angus is the owner of AngusMontgomery Arts, an independent exhibition and events company at the forefront of trade and consumer shows in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Their art fairs include Sydney Contemporary, PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai, India Art Fair and Art Central (Hong Kong).
