More than 120 galleries will be exhibiting, 75 per cent of which are from the Asia Pacific region. There’ll be a record number of Singapore-based galleries – 18 in total. Singapore is the largest participant by country, followed by China, Japan, Australia and the UK.
Participation from Australian galleries has doubled in comparison to last year, signaling the importance of Australia as a key Asia Pacific market.

The Project Stage will feature 33 projects from young cutting-edge artists and interesting galleries emerging on the Asia Pacific art scene. Among those featured are John Clang (2902 Gallery) and Jakkai Siributr (Yavuz Fine Art).
This year, the Singapore Platform will be developed by Singapore’s National Arts Council (NAC), and will be an exclusive commissioning platform for Singapore artists. This strategic move is part of the Council’s priority to grow the capabilities of Singapore artists, says Art Stage, and provide opportunities for them to produce ambitious new works.
In addition, for the first time, the new Singapore platform aims to develop curatorial capabilities by appointing young Singaporean curators to develop the exhibition. More information about the projects will be released by NAC.
