Now in its third year, the Pavilion of Art & design London makes a welcome return to Berkeley Square with the participation of 45 of the world’s most prominent dealers in Modern Art, Decorative Arts and Design from 1860 to the present.
Why go there?
- Because this impressive exhibition (organised by the Paris based Société d’Organisation Culturelle) brings together the most recognised galleries from Paris, London, New York, Milan, Barcelona and Geneva, and allows visitors to discover in one single space some truly iconic and varied design, jewellery, decorative arts and fine art pieces.
- Because it blends with ease 20th Century Masters -with rare canvases by Picasso, Matisse or Warhol- with radical contemporary design pieces by talented newcomers like Sebastian Brajkovic, whose creation for last year’s exhibition is now held at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
- Because it has got some really amazing pieces. Don’t miss Michael Eden’s contemporary take on traditional vases at Adrian Sassoon; the Riddled cabinet by Steven Holl at Galleria Rossella Colombari; the jewellery created by major artists from Picasso to Gavin Turk at Louisa Guinness; and the Studio Job Indian rose wood cabinet at Carpenters Workshop Gallery: definitely pricey -at 60,000 Euros- but inspirational.
Pavilion of Art & Design London, Berkeley Square W1 (Green Park): 11am-7pm, 14-18 October 2009. Entrance fee: £15.
