10 Art Events To Go To In Singapore For Your Art And Culture FIX Now That Art Stage Is Cancelled

You will still be spoiled for choice.
24 January 2019

Despite the sudden end to the art fair, here are other places to enjoy and appreciate local and international artists and their works in Singapore.

Jaws dropped when news broke last week that Art Stage Singapore, deemed one of the country’s major art events, was cancelled this year due to “commercial reasons”, just over a week before its Jan 25 opening. The event was slated to run until Jan 27 at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre, and included 45 exhibitors where 15 of them are from Singapore.

Art Stage Singapore president Lorenzo Rudolf later cited “weak local market” and “unequal competition” as reasons to why the annual event, which once counted China’s Ai Weiwei and Japan’s Takashi Murakami as exhibitors, was abruptly canned.

If you had been looking forward to the art fair and got your tickets ready (don’t worry, you will get refunded), don’t fret. Here are other art events and exhibitions that are happening around the island, which you can go to to fulfil your artistic inclinations.
