Founded by director Lorenzo Rudolf in 2011, Art Stage Singapore 2015 is the 5th edition of the fair and has established a strong following with Australian galleries consistently returning to exhibit.

Ursula Sullivan of Sullivan+Strumpf gallery in Sydney comments that Singapore “is a really interesting market … Singaporeans have a lot of interest in cultural development, and it’s a place that is going to grow and that’s why we keep going back.”

At the 2015 fair Sullivan+Strumpf will be exhibiting Sam Jinks and Aida Tomescu. It will be the first viewing of Tomescu’s work in Asia. Brenda May Gallery, Sydney has attended Art Stage Singapore since 2013 and in their 3rd incarnation at Art Stage Singapore 2015 are taking a large painting installation by Canberra based artist Robert Boynes, who currently has works in Pop to Popism until March 2015 at the Art Galley of New South Wales.

Art centre Papunya Tula Artists are collaborating with RedDot Fine Art Gallery, Singapore, exhibiting 16 indigenous artists, including Yinarupa Nangala, Warlimpirrnga Tjapaltjarri, and Yukultji Napangati. Chalk Horse, Sydney, James Makin Gallery, Melbourne and Mossenson, Perth are also returning while WA Collective, Perth and Kick Gallery, Melbourne will be participating for the first year. Hong Kong born Australian artist John Young will also be exhibiting with Pearl Lam at Art Stage Singapore – his work can also be seen at Arc One in Melbourne from 11 March to 11 April 2011.
