The World’s Premier Contemporary Asian Art Fair
BIGGER and more prestigious, that’s what visitors, artists and gallery owners at ARTSingapore 2000 said the next ARTSingapore should be, and this year, the world’s premier fair for Asian contemporary art will fulfil that promise – a larger exhibition area and a wider showcase of cutting-edge Asian art from the region’s top galleries.
Organised by Art Galleries Association (AGA), 30 galleries from East, South and Southeast Asia will display paintings and other two-dimensional works, ceramics and sculptures. ARTSingapore 2001 will be held from 28 September to 3 October 2001 at the Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre. The event is supported by the Singapore Tourism Board and the National Arts Council and the fair’s patron is Professor Tommy Koh.
Profile of visitors
Last year, more than 9,000 international and local art connoisseurs and collectors, auction season patrons thronged through the five day fair. A survey commissioned by the organisers showed that the majority who attended were Professionals, Managers, Executives and Businessmen with university education and above 25 years old. A fifth of them have an earning capacity of $80k per annum, which made them potential buyers of artwork.
This year, the organisers are expecting at least 15,000 visitors from around the world. ARTSingapore 2001 promises to be a visual treat whether you are an art dealer, a collector, an artist, an enthusiast or someone curious to learn more about the contemporary visual arts scene.
