Art Galleries Association Singapore (AGAS) is proud to present its second annual exhibition, Edition(ed), held at Artspace@Helutrans from 17 to 20 July. This year’s exhibition sees 23 participating galleries featuring over 70 works ranging from photographs to prints and sculptures to digital works by more than 30 artists. The works will be for sale and prices range between $900 and $83,000. The friendly characteristics of multiples and editions make this form of art very popular among budding collectors, but it has also found its way into prestigious museum collections around the world.
The exhibition’s focus on editioned works is an opportunity for collectors, art enthusiasts and students to discover the history and techniques of different mediums. It also plays host to a ‘Saturday Matinee’ programme, held on 19 July from 2 to 5 pm. There will be an exhibition walkthrough followed by a panel discussion on the history and currency of editions, from its origins in printmaking to new developments in contemporary practices.
“Editioned work is not necessarily a reproduction of original work. It has its own artistic merit and it presents a great opportunity for a collector who is just starting out because the price point is much more affordable.” – Ikkan Sanada, founder and director of Ikkan Art International
Ikkan Art Gallery will be showcasing Naoko Tosa’s Sounds of Ikebana: Four Seasons, a series of four videos that captures the vibration of kaleidoscopic paint caused by sound waves, at the exhibition
