Well Singers – you’re having quite the year aren’t you?
Hot on the heels of design-focused Archifest 2012 and Saturday in Design, Singapore’s Affordable Art Fair is back for the third year running from 15-18 November 2012, and yes – it’s bigger, better, and so cool you have to see it to believe it.
The idea behind the Fair is simple, but genius: to make contemporary art accessible to all of us – and to show how affordable art can be.
There will be a diverse selection of high-quality contemporary artworks from Asia, Australia, and Europe, from abstract to figurative, including paintings, sculpture and, photography.
The price tag? Anything from $100 to $10,000, with 75% of the work under $7,500.
You’ll find celeb artists alongside emerging ones – Yayoi Kusama (of dotty fame) and Singapore’s own Ang Sookoon, for instance, and there’ll also be a ‘Young Talent’ platform to promote the finest local artists under 30.
Other really cool features include printmaking demonstrations by printmasters like Marisa Keller, art talks conducted by Art Equity at The Education Area, and parents? You’ll be glad to know there’s a children’s art studio with a slew of activities conducted by Art Boot Camp. Simply drop the kids off there and get shopping!
