Singapore, 10 June 2011, Art Media Agency (AMA).
Swiss art dealer, Frédéric de Senarclens has opened a new branch of his Chinese Gallery in Singapore. It is located near the Peranakan Museum, where an increasing amount of galleries are setting up shop.
Frédéric de Senarclens arrived in Singapore in 2008 to establish a clientele. It has been three years since he started working on the Art Plural Gallery project. The art dealer has noticed that more and more collectors are interested in Singapore, which is becoming the centre of the Asian art market.
Art Stage Singapore, the contemporary art fair hosted in the city in January, spurred on the opening of the Art Plural Gallery. Frédéric de Senarclens thus hopes that the event will draw more clients to the region and boost its dynamism.
The Wall Street Journal has announced that “Avant Première”, the inaugural exhibition, will feature about twenty artists such as Picasso, Botero, Chu Teh-Chun, Julian Schnabel and Marc Quinn. The wide range of prices, between $4,000 and 3 M$, should enable the gallery to find clients easily.
