Sotheby’s Asia to Present its First Selling Exhibition of Outdoor Sculpture in Singapore
Zadok Ben-David, Midnight Dance, Corten Steel, 2012.
Patti Wong, Chairman of Sotheby’s Asia, announced today the company will host its first selling exhibition of outdoor sculpture in Asia with the support of the National Parks Board and Singapore Tourism Board from 23 October 2012 to 31 January 2013. Sotheby’s, with many years’ experience staging monumental sculpture exhibitions in the US and the UK, will take a proven formula further afield when it presents 16 works by award-winning international sculptor Zadok Ben-David against the magnificent backdrop of Singapore Botanic Gardens. The exhibition is partly sponsored by Bank Sarasin, and will be free and open to the public.
Discussing the exhibition, one of the first collaborations of this scale and nature in Asia, Patti Wong said: “During this period of dramatic growth in the art market, collectors in Singapore have been transacting with ever-increasing enthusiasm, particularly in the field of outdoor sculpture. We are grateful to the Singapore Tourism Board and the National Parks Board for providing us with an exceptional opportunity to stage an exhibition which will create a unique art experience for discerning collectors across the entire region.”
Lynette Pang, Executive Director for F1 & Sports and Arts & Entertainment, Singapore Tourism Board, commented: “We are pleased that Sotheby’s, one of the leading forces in the international art market, has chosen Singapore to be the site for their first Asian outdoor sculpture selling exhibition. This exhibition adds to the exciting diversity in our events calendar and complements Singapore’s dynamic visual arts landscape. By augmenting our historical Singapore Botanic Gardens with this high quality visual arts event, this exhibition serves as an opportunity to reach out to the world’s collecting community, and also foster an appreciation of the arts amongst Singaporeans and international visitors alike.”
