Art Basel reviews: S.E.A Focus 2021

28 Jan 2021

Yavuz Gallery has been featured in Art Basel’s article on the third edition of S.E.A Focus art fair.

“The third edition of S.E.A. Focus, a homegrown initiative launched by local non-profit organization  STPI – Creative Workshop & Gallery, is featuring 27 galleries in a showcase of art and artists from across Southeast Asia. The boutique fair, which has a physical and virtual presence, is spearheading Singapore Art Week, a citywide event now in its ninth year.”

“Meanwhile, the neighboring Yavuz Gallery, which will be showing mixed-media works by young Singaporean artist Ian Tee at the fair, has also rented an additional space in Gillman Barracks to put on a pop-up solo exhibition of Tee’s work. ‘I’m using this art week as an opportunity to really get out there and kick-start my program,’ says Can Yavuz, the gallery’s founder, who confirms that the fair has helped to grow his local collecting base. ‘We’ve had fantastic feedback from our clients and the artists, because it really feels like a community fair.’”
