About Art Apart Fair
Art Apart is an international art fair that embraces the diversity of cultural content and artistic expression from around the world, at the same time offering unwavering support to local artists as well. It made its debut in Singapore in January 2013 and showcases the works of emerging and mid-career artists. A hotel-based boutique art fair, it was first staged in Conrad Centennial Singapore and PARKROYAL on Pickering. Art Apart Fair 9th Edition is now moved to Pan Pacific Orchard where the rooms, lobbies and hallways are transformed into an art lover’s eclectic dreamscape of art – art everywhere. Both casual art enthusiasts and serious collectors can enjoy the intimate, comfortable environment this setting facilities.
The concept of a hotel art fair originated at the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York City in 1994 – this was the Gramercy International Art Fair. It has since proliferated worldwide and is regarded as an effective platform to help guests visualize the artwork in the context of a living space, rather than browsing art in the featureless void of the typical white-cube gallery.
After the success of the “Apart Fairs Series” in Singapore during 2013 and 2014, Art Apart made its international debut in London in October 2014, and will be introduced in New York City in 2017. Plans for editions in Paris and Milan are currently in the pipeline as well.
