29 Nov Singapore Art Fair 2014
November 2014 is certainly a landmark month for Artemis Art. Not only did we turn 3 years old this month, but for the first time we participated in a foreign art fair.
And the art fair we chose to debut for our first outing outside of Malaysia was the inaugural Singapore Art Fair, held at the Suntec Convention Centre Singapore, from Thursday to Sunday of last week. Focusing on art from the Middle East, North Africa, and South & Southeast Asia (ME·NA·SA), this new art fair aims to be one of the premier art events in the island republic.
Our participation in Singapore Art Fair is an a milestone for us as a gallery, hopefully paving the way for more art fair participations overseas in the coming years. Participating in events abroad provides us with a wider reach, as well as giving the artists we show the opportunity for their works to reach a much wider audience, well beyond the borders of their respective countries.
Although we had previously been in an international hotel art fair the year before, Singapore Art Fair marked the first time we participated as an individual gallery, our previous outing being in partnership with a Taipei-based gallery for our first time participation the year before.
The inaugural Singapore Art Fair featured galleries from the immediate Southeast Asia region, as well as from around Asia and other world areas. Art fairs such as this provides opportunities to link up and network with galleries from other parts of the world, beneficial should there be a need to do cross-border collaborative exhibitions.
