Fair ending for Art Stage Singapore, drawing record number of visitors


Singapore's premier art fair, Art Stage Singapore got its groove back in the third edition.

Drawing a record 40,500 visitors, up from 32,000 last year, the contemporary art fair, closed on all the right notes on Sunday.

The open layout, stronger works by Asian galleries, attention to curation reflected in the healthy sales and generally happy faces.

The picture was quite different from the last edition, when fair director Mr Lorenzo Rudolf left with a group of key collectors for a tour of Indonesia hours before the fair closed.
