Expect wallet-friendly pieces, interactive art installations and works by upcoming and legendary artists at Affordable Art Fair 2019.
Whether you’re an art connoisseur or a family looking to spruce up your new home, collecting art is a universal joy. That’s why we’re so psyched for November: Our favourite festival that makes art accessible is back for the 10th year running in Singapore, so mark your cals for Affordable Art Fair Singapore from 22 to 24 November 2019 at the F1 Pit Building!
For the uninitiated, this revolutionary fair brings art to the masses at amazingly affordable prices, so seasoned art collectors and beginners alike can experience the pride of taking home a new piece. At Affordable Art Fair Singapore, it’s easy to imagine framing your faves as you browse through works showcased by more than 600 local and international talents. Plus, look forward to hands-on advice and guidance to help you discover the joy of collecting art.
In line with the festival’s ongoing theme of wallet-friendly prices, 75% of the pieces are tagged below $7,500, with nothing above $15,000 (free wrapping included). It’s a steal, considering the exorbitant prices of most artworks in the market. To top it off, here you get to admire the displays of galleries from our home turf and around the region, as well as further afield from the US, UK and Canada.
Festival highlights include the presentation of eight local emerging artists from the Visual Arts Development Art Association and seven winning solo exhibitions from the Young Talent Programme, which spotlights regional budding talents under the age of 35.
Alongside up-and-coming stars of the industry, returning artists include the 106-year-old Toko Shinoda – you’ll recognise her paintings and prints from her distinct blend of traditional calligraphy with abstract expression.
Wanna have some hands-on fun? Check out the life-sized installations, which you can interact with to explore the artists’ creations and inspirations. Heads up to all parents: Little ones can get in on the action too! The Children’s Creative Space lets kids under 12 experiment with art of their own, so you can leave them to their artistic creations and have a fuss-free experience of your own at the complimentary art talks and workshops. Now go forth and get your art on.
