Speaker : Singapore and The” Southeast Asian Art Ecosystem”
Singapore has since 1990′s stated its intention to position itself as a “global city for the arts”. However, discussions, published writings and specific decisions have, more often than not, been Singapore-centric, even though neither Singapore nor its arts scene exists in silo. The presentation proposed an alternative, outside-in approach in advancing this discourse. It framed the discussion by weaving in a broader framework that involves Indonesia and Hong Kong, through an overview of the Southeast Asian art market and comparative developments in the art scenes of Singapore, Hong Kong and Indonesia. Patricia took the audience through specific and detailed components that make up the Southeast Asian art scenes and markets, the workings of the validation and distribution centres before moving on to examine Singapore’s stated ambition and the issues that are associated with that aspiration – including that of education, mentality and attitudes as well as creative leadership. Perspectives from different individuals from within and outside the Southeast Asian art scene were also brought in to enrich the discourse and five filmed interviews were screened for the first time : T K Sabapathy, Art Historian (Singapore), Helena Spanjaard, Art Historian, (Amsterdam), Lorenzo Rudolf, Art Stage Singapore, Sylvain Levy, Collector, DSL Collection (Paris). A trailer for Leading Patrons of Asian Art also premiered that evening.
