The Art Week Conversations 2018: Considering Collecting


3 Talks. 14 Speakers.

Real-time Views of the Art Market.
Buying and Collecting from a Southeast Asian Perspective.

The Art Week Conversations are insightful, grounded in actual practice, and provide collectors and would-be collectors meaningful ways to navigate the art market.

The topics are: Considering Collecting: Cambodia / Singapore / Southeast Asia

The series provides current views of the art market, buying, collecting and artistic production from a Southeast Asian perspective; for both the experienced and novice collector.

Cambodia: Past Forward

Saturday 20 January, 11 – 12.30

In a country where almost an entire generation of artists has been lost, and the art gallery and exhibition system is still nascent, how do artists sustain themselves? What does the future hold for new artists? The panel includes curator Erin Gleeson, a curator and scholar of Cambodian contemporary art; and Leang Seckon, one of the foremost members of the Cambodian contemporary art scene.

Southeast Asia: Calling Out The Status Quo

Sunday 21 January, 11 – 12.30

Since the 1970s, Southeast Asian modern artists have joined in the cross pollination of cultural identities mainly through artists’ associations. In the 1990s, museums, galleries and auction houses led the region’s art growth. But is Southeast Asia simply an organized mess of separate identities? What are the ties that bind the region in terms of art languages and production? Join our discussion with Tan Boon Hui, Director of the Asia Society Museum, Johnni Wong, veteran art journalist, and Roberta Dans, Founder and Director of Artesan Gallery + Studio.

Singapore: Starting Young

Saturday 27 January, 11 – 12.30

In the fourth edition of our discussion on Singapore, we consider the art scene from the point of the Next Generation. What does the future hold for young and/or new collectors as the market evolves? What sort of art do they collect? How do they deal with shifting paradigms on art, gallery practices, and buying online? In the shortened timing where choice, art developments and price increases may be exponential, will buying young artists’ works become too risky? We hear from gallerist Stephanie Fong, collectors Bryan Tan and Ning Chong, and artist Ruben Pang.

Come join us to learn more about these three exciting markets for art collectors.
