With 128 exhibitors showing over 1,200 works, there’s a lot to love at Art Stage Singapore, Southeast Asia’s premier art fair, now in its fourth year and first as our official partner. Since we launched our preview of the fair on Friday, viewers have explored what galleries from Australia to Central Asia have on display. Here are the six most visited so far:

6. Art Plural Gallery (Singapore), exhibiting works across virtually all mediums, including a signature Kwang-Young Chun mulberry paper creation and one of Li Tianbing’s memory-soaked photographs of his personal history.

5. Mark Hachem Gallery (New York), featuring works by two North African artists: sculptor/painter NACER from Algeria and photographer Yves Hayat from Egypt.

4. Lisson Gallery (London), devoting their booth to Tatsuo Miyajima, the Japanese artist who creates pulsating, evocative installations from nothing but LED lights and digital tickers.

3. Officine dell’Immagine (Milan), exhibiting three artists from their roster of emerging international talents: two challenging photographers—Gohar Dashti of Iran and Xing Danwen of China—as well as some of Italian Tamara Feriola’s impossibly delicate drawings made from pencils and hair.

2. Tomio Koyama (Tokyo), with one-of-a-kind works from Satoshi Hirose’s incredible “Beans Cosmos” series, sparkling cubes of acrylic resin that contain suspended constellations of beans, buttons, nuts, precious metals and the like.

1. Visionairs Gallery (Paris), the Left Bank-based emerging gallery whose range of inventive photographers and darkly playful painters take the top spot in Singapore so far.

Art Stage Singapore opens to the public today. Can’t make it? Be sure to explore the feature on Artsy and discover new artists from nearly 130 exhibitors.
