For lovers of art and design, it’s perhaps never been a more opportune time to visit Milan. As the trifecta of Design Week, Miart, and the nearby Venice Biennale converge in mid-April, the city’s enviable destinations for art, design, and dining are garnering an outsized spotlight. Yet, as any of the city’s gallerists will tell you, Milan’s myriad cultural gems can be witnessed year-round.

“Milan’s art and design scene has always been vibrant and dynamic, known for its mix of traditional craftsmanship and contemporary innovation,” said Nicolo Cardi, CEO of Milan stalwart Cardi Gallery. Many agree that this blend of old and new, plus its stronghold of various creative industries, is what sets it apart from cities like New York or Paris. “The city’s emphasis on craftsmanship, coupled with a strong focus on fashion and industrial design, creates a unique and dynamic artistic environment that resonates with visitors regardless of the season,” noted Antonio Borghese, director of the city’s ABC-ARTE.

Taipei Dangdai Art & Ideas, the Taiwan art fair, hosted its 2024 edition last week, with 78 dealers from 19 countries and territories exhibiting this year. The fair, now in its fifth edition, opened as Taiwan’s collectors continue to exhibit their purchasing power and the country’s leading art institutions flex their curatorial prowess to visiting international dealers, curators, and other art professionals.

The fair kicked off Thursday with a VIP opening during which blue-chip enterprise Galleria Continua reported selling a Corten-steel sculpture by Antony Gormley for over $625,000. By the fair’s end, several galleries participating for the first time reported positive sales results.

National Gallery Singapore is delighted to announce that for the first time in the country’s history, artists from the Gallery’s collection have been invited to participate in the Main Exhibition of the 60th International Art Exhibition—the Venice Biennale (Biennale Arte 2024), entitled Stranieri Ovunque—Foreigners Everywhere, curated by Adriano Pedrosa.

The eight artworks by Southeast Asian artists will be featured in the “Nucleo Storico” section of the Main Exhibition in a sub-section entitled “Portraits”, which expands the history of modernism beyond Europe and North America by focusing on stories from the Global South, including artists whose trajectories took them across continents and contexts over the tumultuous course of the 20th century. 

With more than 8,000 works, the National Gallery Singapore holds the largest public collection of modern art from Southeast Asia, offering a unique point of departure for transnational curatorial and research efforts that seek to position art from the region as integral to global art histories.
