SOS from Singapore

Singapore’s major contemporary art fair has been canceled last week, just a few days before its planned opening on January 24. Gallerists with works of art already headed to Asia are confused and last but not least a Facebook SOS group tries to help out with alternative exhibition venues.
The cancellation came as a shock to the fair’s 35 exhibitors, who received an email last week from Art Stage Singapore’s president, Lorenzo Rudolf. He wrote: “I’m sorry to have to inform you that as president of Art Stage Singapore, I am forced to immediately stop the preparations for Art Stage Singapore 2019… and to cancel the fair.” He added that “given circumstances” left no other choice.

A New Face at Hayward

The Hayward Gallery in London has appointed Zoé Whitley as its new senior curator. She will begin at the Hayward in early April. Vincent Honoré, who previously held the position, has departed the museum to become artistic director of MoCo Contemporary Arts in Montpellier, France. Interesting times.

Sao Paolo 2020

After just naming José Olympio Pereira president of its foundation, the Bienal de São Paulo in Brazil has continued staffing up ahead of the 2020 edition and announced that it will be curated by Jacopo Crivelli Visconti.
This is not the first time Visconti, who is a São Paulo–based independent critic and curator, has worked with the Bienal. He previously served as a member of the foundation’s exhibitions team between 2001 and 2009. In 2007, Visconti curated the Brazilian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, while for this year’s Venice Biennale, he will oversee the Cypriot pavilion.
