Four Special Exhibitions make their debuts at Art Stage this year for visitors to better understand art from a specific region, medium or period. The works are displayed in a museum layout, and guided tours and talks are held at each if you’re interested to find out more about the pieces on show.
Curated by Olga Sviblova, director of Multimedia Museum Moscow, the showcase features a collection from the emerging contemporary art scene in Russia, such as the work of Andrey Gorbunov. Participating galleries include Shtager Gallery, Triumph Gallery, 11.12 Gallery and Savina Gallery.
Find out the significance of the Modern art movement in the emergence and rise of the contemporary art scene in Asia at this exhibition. Works by masters such as Akbar Padamsee, SH Raza, FN Souza, and Zao Wou-Ki are displayed, with special attention paid to French artist André Masson.
The exhibition is dedicated to the works of 16 Malaysian artists, who collaborate in a collective called TheFKlub. They specialise in figurative art, with each artist contributing a two-by-twometre portrait to form a single image.
