Art Stage Singapore and Singapore Art Week 2014 (VIDEOS)

When Art Stage Singapore launched four years ago, there were almost no events other than the art fair. Today, the situation is totally different. The event has grown into Singapore Art Week with numerous gallery and museum openings, art tours, art awards, talks, performances and parties. So, for art lovers, there's no better time to be in Singapore than during Singapore Art Week (January 13 to 19).

Art Stage Singapore itself, which takes place at the spectacular Marina Bay Sands, features a new fair format that comprises eight country and regional Platforms. The Platforms, which include Southeast Asia, India, China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Australia and Central Asia, are curated by experts of the respective arts scenes. Art Stage Singapore presents over 100 galleries, of which 80 percent are Asia Pacific-based galleries. A supporting program complements the gallery presentations, including a special evening program to highlight the local art scene in Singapore and the Singapore Biennale, and guided tours and art talks.

This video playlist provides you with a walkthrough of Art Stage Singapore and interviews with emerging and renowned artists such as Zulkifle Mahmod, Hiroaki Kano, Tu Wei-Cheng, Mia Liu and Bose Krishnamachari. The playlist will be updated continually, so please check back the next days.
