Highlight of Art Stage Singapore 2016 was the Southeast Asia Forum that explored the bridge between the art market and the non-commercial facets of contemporary art. Encapsulating this idea was the exhibition ‘Seismograph: Sensing the City – Art In the Urban Age’ that successfully underscored the significance of contemporary art in developing the modern society.

Despite facing a gloomy economy and experiencing a dip in the number of visitors, Art Stage Singapore saw favourable sales. Among the top selling artists and artworks at Art Stage include Yayoi Kusama whose works fetched USD1.2 million and Chun Kwang Young who saw one of its works fetching USD 175,000.
