As you’d expect from an art fair with the tag line “we are Asia,” Chinese artists and galleries feature prominently at Art Stage Singapore, which runs from January 16 to 19.

Over 20 of the fair’s 130 galleries have a presence in China. Additionally, China and Taiwan are both among the eight curated national exhibitions in the fair’s “Platforms” section.

The China platform exhibition is entitled “The Status of Chinese Contemporary Art: Transformation in Concept and Language”. The broad, vague title is indicative of a very loose collection curated by Huang Du — from new works by young artists to pieces by Qiu Zhijie and a video, already nine years old, by Yang Fudong.

Highlights include the 100 most common Chinese surnames rendered in tofu by Chen Qiulin, and constellations of submerged coins photographed by Chen Wei.
