Just as many people are complaining about Art Week fatigue, we are informed of another two more art fair. Do you think that there are just too many events this week?
We managed to get tickets for Arts Stage from Yeo's Workshop, guest of Bose and visited Art Stage. There is a lot of art and many people visiting.
I heard that sales for the fair had been lukewarm from some exhibitors while some say they did ok (So can't tell if the market is bad). I wished I had more time to look at all the art fairs and hope to be able to write something in the future about commercial galleries,
On the ST article, it will be a great move for NAC to give fair coverage by including all of the art fairs happening at this time. It will be a great push for the other two art fairs with the publicity and giving the art audience more options.
However, I don't think NAC has any obligation to 'promote' all the art fairs. Arts Week is NAC's event, it's their choice for whatever reason.
I document the article below.
