Carrying on with championing contemporary art across the world, Lorenzo Rudolf will expand his Art Stage Singapore in 2013 to include galleries dedicated to Indonesian art and artists with the hopes of broadening the audience of these cultural pieces. Rudolf is famously associated with championing Latin American art.

At Art Basel Miami, Lorenzo Rudolf championed Latin America’s contemporary art scene and helped raise its profile. As director of Art Stage Singapore, he aims to do something similar for Indonesia.

“When we talk about Southeast Asia in contemporary art, we have to talk about Indonesia,” he said. “They have some of the strongest artists and collectors in Asia.”

To improve their visibility, Art Stage Singapore 2013 will include dedicated space for Indonesian galleries and an exhibition of about 30 Indonesian artists, some of whom have never shown outside the country. And in an unusual move for an art fair, Art Stage will represent about two-thirds of them. “We only want to show the best, but many Indonesian artists [don't work] with galleries,” Mr. Rudolf said. “We have a situation where the infrastructure is not there.”
