Art Stage Singapore is an Asian contemporary art fair held every January in Singapore with a focus on Southeast Asian art.

History[edit]

Art Stage Singapore was founded by Lorenzo Rudolf.[1] Rudolf initially rejected a proposal to launch Art Basel in Singapore in 1992 but later revisited the idea of creating a unique Asian art fair. The fair took nine years to be realized. The first edition was held in 2011 at Marina Bay Sands.

The 2019 edition of the fair was cancelled, leaving the future of the fair in doubt.[2][3][4]
