Collectors’ Insights

Saturday, 26 January 2019
3.00pm – 4.00pm
STPI Gallery

Held once a year during Singapore Art Week in January, this panel session is a programme highlight that falls on the busiest, most anticipated art month of the year in Singapore, with local Art Week festivities and Art Stage Singapore. It is a platform for prominent collectors to share their philosophy behind collecting and their own collection with the visiting international crowd, our clients and the general public. Through this, we hope to inspire collecting locally and draw attention to some of the most exciting collections around the world. Some speakers we’ve had in the past include Alan Servais, Steve & Chiara Rosenblum, Howard Tam and Jim Amberson.
