Singapore Art Book Fair

The inaugural Singapore Art Book Fair will be held from 27 November to 1 December this year. Organized by BooksActually and HJGHER, the fair will take place at Gillman Barracks, a former army barracks that has been converted into a center for contemporary art. The fair will complement the Singapore Biennale 2013 and the Affordable Art Fair, both taking place at about the same time.

Exhibitors come from all over the world–the UK, Berlin, Hong Kong, Tokyo, New York, Beirut, Milan, Dubai, and Shanghai. Singapore is represented by 13 local exhibitors. The program includes film screenings, performances, talks and workshops. You can get the latest updates from the fair’s Facebook page.
