iPRECIATION will be presenting the annual group exhibition of small collectible fine art from 13-22 October 2016. Portable Art Week aims to dispel myths that art collection is only for a select few, and ease off any intimidation that people may face in buying or collecting art. Instead, similar to the edition in 2015, Portable Art Week aims to be a friendly platform for collectors to explore artists new to them, ask questions and get up close with Singapore and Asian contemporary art, thereby encouraging and cultivating a "collectors" culture amongst art lovers that will help create a more vibrant art scene.
As suggested by the name, this exhibition aims to do so by introducing smaller works specially created by local and Asian artists for this exhibition. The smaller sized works are both more affordable and easy as starting steps for collection on an artist whose works one is starting to appreciate and explore. The works in this exhibition will be priced from $1000 to $8,000.
This year, the selection of works in this group exhibition includes Boo Sze Yang's new oil paintings of transitory spaces, Jason Lim's ceramic sculptures, Quek Kiat Sing's ink on paper works showing corridor scenes and home animals, Ezekiel Wong Kel Win's embossed prints with social commentaries, Tay Bak Chiang's subject of rocks on canvas and Oh Chai Hoo's ink on paper series, amongst others.
Art collection is not just for a privileged few. To enhance art collecting accessibility to new collectors, any acquisition made with OCBC Mastercard, Visa and China UnionPay Cards can enjoy 0% interest instalment payment plans.
