Message from the Chairman
Today, culture is becoming a new life force for society. The era of a new cultural industry is emerging, in which national brand value rises and high added value is created. The world is rushing to converge with culture.
The 2019 Global Art Fair Singapore , hosted by the Sejong Center for the Promotion of Culture and Arts, and hosted by the Global Art Fair Management Committee , aims to serve as a growth engine for the cultural industry. As an art fair where industry and economy are not merely arts, it will bring about a big change in modern culture that does not stay in existing art but continues to export culture industry.
Now, Korean contemporary art should go towards the world market. Therefore, 2019 Global Art Fair Singapore will contribute to fostering the flexibility of our culture to open the door to the world, and will be an integral part of strengthening the image of Korean culture.
Global Art Fair Singapore will promote the world’s growing cultural imagination and make our culture more flourishing. Especially, when the world is transformed into a market structure, all the people on the planet have a closer relationship with each other. The most important task for the future is the fusion of culture and people, and the artificial intelligence era of the fourth industrial revolution It is possible that the source of power that can lead is innovation and fusion of creativity culture.
We need to have a positive view of the art fair to attract the global market. In the future, Global Art Fair Singapore will do its best to maximize the capacity of cultural exports through the fusion of national image and social culture.
