SINGAPORE (18 November 2021) – „ART SG, the new international art fair for Southeast Asia, is rescheduling its inaugural edition in Singapore to 12 – 15 January 2023 (VIP Preview 11 January 2023) at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre. Leading galleries from across the globe have shared their full support for the decision to reschedule ART SG in the context of global concerns surrounding the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, and have confirmed participation for January 2023. Presented by Founding and Lead Partner UBS, ART SG will provide a platform for a deep exploration of the Southeast Asian cultural landscape, as well as offer collectors the opportunity to engage with the work of leading artists from around the world.
“The decision to reschedule our inaugural edition to January 2023 follows detailed discussions with our galleries and stakeholders. We are particularly thankful for the long-standing support from our partners, including UBS, the Singapore Tourism Board and our galleries. Singapore is a hugely exciting centre for art and a rapidly developing cultural capital, and its position as one of the leading global centres of private wealth management continues to strengthen. We have made exceptional progress over the last year, and consensus is building in the international art world that Singapore and ART SG will have an increasingly important role to play. We have received overwhelmingly positive commitment from leading galleries regionally and across the globe, and are grateful to them for their continued support and shared vision in building ART SG into the major international hub fair for Southeast Asia. With the increasing rollout of Vaccinated Travel Lanes and Singapore’s steady and managed move towards opening up, we look forward to welcoming collectors and galleries from across the world in January 2023,” said Magnus Renfrew, Co-Founder, ART SG.

“As the natural hub for Southeast Asia, Singapore has steadily grown as a vibrant art destination with innovative artists and world-class museums, galleries and arts spaces. Singapore is also increasingly home to the region’s wealth base as demonstrated by the growing number of family offices opening here, as well as its emerging position as Asia’s tech capital. This together with established international businesses and entrepreneurs recognising the benefits of Singapore as the base for their pan-Asian operations, provides the context for a rapidly developing, forward thinking and affluent collector base, who are increasingly engaging with Singapore’s rich cultural landscape. Galleries from around the world continue to recognize the incredible potential of the regional market and Singapore’s unparalleled position as the nexus for Southeast Asia. We are excited to work with our galleries and partners in the coming months as we prepare for the inaugural edition of ART SG,” commented Shuyin Yang, Fair Director, ART SG.
