For Immediate Release
SINGAPORE, July 1st 2014 — Following this quarter’s theme, Art and Religion, the third edition of ART REPUBLIK takes a leap of faith into a world that sits on a greater plane.
“But really, art is religion. The most profound similarity would be that they are both bridges from the here and now, to what is beyond. They also both evoke similar engagements, are thought-provoking, they tell stories of something or somewhere greater, and they require a certain leap of faith,” says Marc Wong, Managing Editor of ART REPUBLIK.
As such, this issue of ART REPUBLIK uncovers religion’s vital influence in art over the centuries, and continues to explore the vast world of contemporary art and culture with Francois Curiel, President of Christie’s Asia; legendary photographer, Annie Leibovitz; the most visible members of Russian protest-art collective Pussy Riot, Nadya Tolokonnikova and Masha Alekhina feat. Vladimir Putin; French photographer-painter duo, Pierre et Gilles; and more.
The issue also ventures into Indonesia to meet their most noteworthy art collectors and emerging artists; into Hong Kong where we review their recent Art Basel and pick out our favourite works/exhibits from the fair; and we tackle the burning question: Are auction houses displacing galleries?
Mr. Olivier Burlot, CEO & Publisher at Heart Media, comments: "Now into our third issue, ART REPUBLIK comes of age, as the team continues to explore the extent of how art has influenced various facets of our lives. Readers will be presented with rich-cultural and artistic depictions of both Asian and Western religions reflected throughout key eras in history. Also in this issue, we preview a select list of upcoming art fairs that ART REPUBLIK will be supporting.”
In the coming months, ART REPUBLIK will be a key strategic partner of the following events:
