THE LONDON ART FAIR
Last night [DoR] attended the preview of The London Fair. Last year co-founder of [DoR], Amber Ablett exhibited work in Print Now at BEARSPACE. This year the Arts Projects area of the fair seemed smaller but as innovative, although the sparkling wine made the experience all more bearable.
Art Projects has now been a major part of London Art Fair for six years. In 2010 we expanded into a new space and this year will be our biggest ever with 31 galleries featuring emerging artists and new work. Established as one of the most exciting sections of the Fair, it features solo shows, curated group displays and large-scale installations with galleries from across the world.
The fair, as ever, was extremely busy and it was difficult to take any serious notice of the art through the mayhem of people. I did however very much enjoy attending the charity auction hosted by Christie's on the top level of the fair. There was quite an amount of money being spent, unfortunately not be me.
