ART APART FAIR
Conrad Centennial Singapore was the first hotel venue where the Art Apart Fair was held in January 2013 where 33 rooms were converted into art space showcasing paintings and photography to video art, sculptures and installations.
ParkRoyal on Pickering hosted six Art Apart Fairs in succession from 2014 to 2016.
Its management board had found the hotel-based boutique art fair an attraction to its hotel guests as well as the local art patrons which underlined the longstanding partnership.
In 2017, at the invitation of Pan Pacific, Art Apart Fair held its 8th Edition in suites and convention floors of the hotel.
In its 9th Edition in 2018, at the invitation of Wisma Atria, more than 8,000 square feet of prime shopping space at road level of Orchard Road was converted into an art enclave for shoppers over a period of eight months.
Art Apart Fair took a new turn with developer of Goodwood Grand on Balmoral Road to furnish four brand new bungalows with artworks, sculptures, designed furniture and lightings, converting the space into artistically unique showroom.
This 10th Edition marked another new milestone for Art Apart to bring arts to upmarket living space.

PATRON OF THE ARTS
Individual could support and help our artists of your choice to grow and improve their Creative skills through residency programmes overseas. Your support could also come in the form of space rental subsidy so they could exhibit their artworks.
Emerging Artists do not have regular income and their livelihood depends on artworks they are successful in selling.
We at Art Apart assist the artists by counselling and coaching them and creating a platform for them to exhibit their artworks both online and offline.
Corporations through our good corporate citizen programmes could join our "Adopt an Artist Sponsorship" project.
Please email us to express your interest and we’ll be happy to arrange a meeting to share our programmes and how you could help our budding and emerging artists.
