Art Stage Singapore 2012 also once again proved to be the meeting point and get-together of the who’s w`ho of the Asian art world, including the collectors, the curators and, most especially, the artists. And with the fair’s very own Collectors Club, Art Stage Singapore has established itself as the matchmaking platform and get-together point of the continent – building the necessary bridges between all the Asian and international art scenes. In fact, some of the leading Asian galleries announced that they will be opening new spaces and branches in Singapore in the near future.

The fair received a total of 31,000 visitors that came to view the 133 galleries on show. A total of 101 of these galleries were in the general booth area, while 43 of these galleries were at the Project Stage platform - the space dedicated to emerging artists. Representing 19 countries, over 600 artists’ works were on display in the three halls of Basement 2 at the Marina Bay Sands Convention and Exhibition Centre.
