First Art Fair Selling Exhibition
A Tiroche DeLeon Collection and Art Stage Singapore collaboration
The grand highlight of the fair was a 200 square meter booth boasting an impressive selling exhibition of Asian contemporary works from the Tiroche DeLeon Collection. Acquired between 2011-2016, several were actually bought at Art Stage and were now re-exhibited in the context of a collection. The innovative initiative came from an evolutionary necessity of collectors to find new avenues for selling outside the auction realm.

The relationship between Lorenzo Rudolf, founder of Art Stage, and Serge Tiroche, founder of the Tiroche DeLeon Collection, dates back to 2011 when Tiroche was invited by the Singapore Art Museum to present what is arguably Rodal Tapaya's most iconic work that won the triennial Asia Breweries Foundation Signature Art Prize, catapulting Tapaya to international recognition. This work will be a highlight of Art Stage in 2018.
Rudolf and Tiroche immediately hit a common cord and Rudolf joined the Advisory Board of the Tiroche DeLeon Collection, a unique art fund with a strong social agenda which was being established at the time.
"We are pleased to have come full circle with Lorenzo, to present a collection he helped us build over the past 6 years. It is wonderful when two open-minded individuals meet and are comfortable challenging the status quo by exploring new collaborative models. I am excited about this opportunity to show our collection to audiences in Singapore and the broader Pacific region, enabling interested collectors to acquire established masterpieces with fewer intermediaries." - Serge Tiroche
