I have been in Singapore in the last couple of weeks, to report on the Art fair ART SG and the art week. I wrote a piece on the sales on the preview day for The Art Newspaper. Below a snippet and the link.

“‘Welcome to the tropical jungle,’ reads a sign welcoming visitors to the impressive green wall at Terminal 3 of Singapore Changi Airport. The irony is, of course, that despite its geographical setting, the Lion City is anything but a jungle. Everything it does is planned and in an orderly manner.

This includes a decades-long effort by its government to position the city-state as an art hub for the diverse and organic Southeast Asian art scenes. After some turbulence, the flagship international fair Art SG was launched last year and well received by an art-starved, post-pandemic public, gathering 164 galleries from 35 countries.”
