Keen to own a piece of art? The Affordable Art Fair returns to Singapore once again this November for its ninth Autumn Edition. This time around, it will exhibit 80 galleries (up from 70 galleries in 2017), presenting over 600 local and international artists’ artwork all priced below $15,000, with 75% of the work below $7,500. The international range of galleries exhibiting at the fair has always been a strong attraction for visitors and this year is no exception. The Fair has seen a rise in local gallery applications this season and will present 22 galleries from Singapore (up from 18 last year).
“The essential synergy which exists between the local and international aspects of the Affordable Art Fair has been a large part of our success in the art and lifestyle market. As a brand which strives to cater to the globalised tastes of our art-loving audience in Singapore, our loyal patrons are excited not only by new artworks developed by returning and established artists, but also express an increasing appetite for fresh creations by new and emerging artists,” said Fair Director, Mr. Alan Koh.
