Art Republik, Asia’s exciting new quarterly art publication was launched on the 20th of November 2013 at the Singapore Affordable Art Fair, and received, with open arms, much praise from the public, and accolades from notable individuals of the art world including Art Stage’s Founder and Fair Director Lorenzo Rudolf, and the Director of Media & Marketing for the Singapore National Art Gallery, Woon Tai Ho.
Heart Media Launches Art Republik Asias Ultimate Arts Title
The launch of Art Republik is a milestone in the development of our local contemporary art scene — first of all, Singapore finally has a professional art magazine that covers a wide spectrum of art related news and activities,” says Lorenzo Rudolf, “Second of all, the content and design of its first edition are impressively done. Last but not least, the magazine has successfully put art and lifestyle together in the right context.”
Under the direction of Managing Editor, Mr. Marc Wong, Art Republik features dynamic and engaging content, exploring the best in contemporary art and culture. And while the magazine traverses planes of wit and a gripping art direction, it also, at the same time, holds much credibility through the voices of many prominent individuals in the art world.
The publication also seeks to be a voice for both established and emerging artists from all over the world, and a unifier for gallerists, curators, collectors, and art academics and enthusiasts that connect all to art in a global scale.
“We are truly encouraged by the amazing feedback we’ve had since launching Art Republik at the Singapore Affordable Art Fair 2013,” Marc Wong remarks, “we’ve made waves with collectors to artists themselves to enthusiasts and we’re looking forward to an incredible journey ahead. The art world in Asia has been yearning for a voice and a platform for a long time now, and Art Republik’s inception is at perfect timing.”
Additionally, in the coming months, ART REPUBLIK will be actively supporting all major art events in Singapore and more to come around the Asia Region as the preferred media partner. Such events will include:
- ArtStage (Singapore) January 16-19 2014
- Maison & Objet Asia (Singapore) March 10-13 2014
All of the above elements will further define Art Republik as Asia’s ultimate arts title.
Advertisers in the first issue include major art galleries from Asia as well as luxury brands Audemars Piguet, Franck Muller, Blancpain, Montblanc, Baume & Mercier, Bell & Ross, Christofle, Lalique, Daum, Champagne Ruinart, Glashütte Original, Bovet, Jacquet Droz, Parmigiani and Baccarat.
