Visitors from across Asia flocked to the 2nd edition of Singapore Contemporary which took place January 19 - 22 at Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre. From across Asia, 22,650 visitors attended the show, a 40% increase over its 2016 inaugural edition. The show offered visitors a wide-ranging collection of high-quality, collectable works that were presented in uniquely curated sectors by 90 galleries from around the world: Photo17 Singapore, Latin American Voices, Artist Dialogues, China Encounters and Gallery Projects.
The vibrant and diverse range of works on exhibit included investment-grade art with a strong secondary market and auction following, plus those by career artists, whose works are held in private and public collections, and some of the world's most promising up-and-coming artists.

In addition to showcasing over 3,000 carefully selected works of art, Singapore Contemporary hosted over 45 artists who were on hand to engage with the art-loving public, and several presented live painting demonstrations that wowed both children and adults. A series of 36 informative, docent-led tours and 12 lively and engaging Art Talks drew large crowds; and more than 350 children enjoyed fun activities in the Macey & Sons Kids Art Studio, along with 12 educational and entertaining art tours.
