ART SG, Southeast Asia’s leading international art fair, is making its return for its second edition at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands, right in the heart of Singapore.

After a highly successful launch in January 2023, ART SG’s upcoming edition is all set to present an exceptional line-up of 114 galleries from 33 countries and territories, representing the best in contemporary art practice.

With a VIP Preview and Vernissage on 18 January, the fair will run from 19 – 21 January 2024 featuring curated gallery presentations, ambitious large-scale installations, insightful conversations, a thought-provoking film sector and expansive city-wide activations in close collaboration with Singapore Art Week - the city’s annual celebration of the visual arts.

ART SG in 2024 will unfold across three main sectors including the GALLERIES sector for diverse, multi-artist exhibitions; FOCUS which features galleries presenting solo or duo artist programs, or curated thematic presentations; and FUTURES, dedicated to supporting younger galleries under the age of 10 years, presenting specially created presentations for ART SG.

The 2024 edition will feature 68 leading international and regional galleries, showcasing multi-disciplinary presentations by represented artists, including painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, photography, video, and digital works of exceptional quality. Highlights from international galleries include:

White Cube (London, Hong Kong, New York, Seoul, Paris, West Palm Beach) will present a thoughtfully curated showcase featuring artists including Tracey Emin, Isamu Noguchi, Marguerite Humeau, Theaster Gates, Ibrahim Mahama, Christian Marclay and Danh Vo, among others.

FUTURES, the sector dedicated to supporting young galleries under the age of 10 years, presents 11 galleries showcasing new curated presentations for ART SG. Highlights include:

Artemis Gallery (Lisbon) will bring together new media artists Evelyn Bencicova, kennedy+swan and Studio Above&Below, all of whom are known for pushing the boundaries of digital image-making through video, computer-generated imagery and immersive technologies such as virtual and augmented reality.

The Back Room (Kuala Lumpur) will present large, textile-based works broadly revolving around themes of identity and independence by three emerging talents from Southeast Asia and Central America: Antonio Pichillá Quiacaín (Guatemala), Marcos Kueh (Malaysia/Netherlands) and Red Hong Yi (Malaysia). The booth will be anchored by a fluorescent, multi-work woven installation by Marcos Kueh that touches on themes of the postcolonial subject, flanked by woven works by Antonio Pichillá Quiacaín inspired by his indigenous identity and Red Hong Yi’s investigations into womanhood.

Throughout the fair, visitors will also encounter dynamic, large-scale, site-specific installations as part of PLATFORM sector; experience a curated FILM program hosted in collaboration with ArtScience Museum and participate in a TALKS program featuring art world thought leaders.
