Other art events to check out now that Art Stage is cancelled

If you're disappointed by the news of Art Stage being canned, here are other exhibits and events across the island featuring local and international artists for you to enjoy
 

Jaws dropped when news broke last week that Art Stage Singapore, deemed one of the country’s major art events, was cancelled this year due to “commercial reasons”, just over a week before its Jan 25 opening.

The event was slated to run until Jan 27 at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre, and included 45 exhibitors where 15 of them are from Singapore.

Art Stage Singapore president Lorenzo Rudolf later cited “weak local market” and “unequal competition” as reasons to why the annual event, which once counted China’s Ai Weiwei and Japan’s Takashi Murakami as exhibitors, was abruptly canned.

If you had been looking forward to the art fair and got your tickets ready (don’t worry, you will get refunded), don’t fret. Here are 12 other art events and exhibitions that are happening around the island, which you can go to to fulfill your artistic inclinations.
