Forty-Five of the World's Most Prominent Dealers will be Present at Pavilion of Art & Design London
Spectre, Stool 2009.

LONDON.- Now in its third year, the Pavilion of Art & Design London – an expansion of DesignArt London – makes an impressive return to Berkeley Square from 14 to 18 October with the participation of 45 of the world’s most prominent dealers in the fields of Modern Art, Decorative Arts and Design from 1860 to the present. The strong presence of international exhibitors combined with a high concentration of London‐based galleries this year makes it the largest and ever‐expanding event of its kind to take place during Frieze week. Galleries from Paris, London, Brussels, Milan, New York, Barcelona and Geneva will bring to the capital the most coveted and iconic design, jewellery, decorative art and fine art pieces, showcased in a rigorously curated and sophisticated setting for an anticipated audience of 25,000 visitors.

Rare canvases by 20th Century Masters, from Léger, Picasso, Calder, Soutine and Matisse to Warhol, Fontana, Dubuffet, Hantai and Moore will fill the universe of fine art representatives Richard Nagy Ltd. (London), Galerie Vedovi (Brussels), E&R Cyzer Art (London), Galeria Manuel Barbié (Barcelona), Faggionato Fine Arts (London), Connaught Brown (London), Galerie Jacques de la Béraudière (Geneva), Osborne Samuel (London), Lefèvre Fine Art (London), Galerie Berès (Paris), David Grob (Parracombe, UK), Martin Summers Fine Arts Ltd (London) and Van de Weghe Fine Art (New York). Contemporary works by Gerhard Richter at Custot Gallery Ltd (London), Candida Höfer at Ben Brown Fine Arts (London) and Toshio Shibata and Nobuyoshi Araki at Michael Hoppen Gallery (London) extend the historical panorama to today.

Design newcomers Gordon Watson (London) and Galerie Olivier Watelet (Paris) will join returning galleries Anne Autegarden (Brussels), Galerie Downtown François Laffanour (Paris), Galleria Rossella Colombari (Milan), Rapin – Müllendorff (Brussels) and Alain Marcelpoil (Paris) in bringing the finest assortment of post‐war design furniture. Carpenters Workshop Gallery (London) will present radical pieces by contemporary designer Sebastian Brajkovic – winner of last year’s DesignArt London‐Möet Hennessy Prize whose creation is now held in the Victoria & Albert collection – and the multi‐functional units of Atelier Van Lieshout. Leading design and art dealers Barry Friedman and Marc Benda (New York) will make a strong first appearance at the fair with outstanding pieces by Wendell Castle, Forrest Myers and Ettore Sottsass.

Decorative arts will be represented by Paris‐based Galerie Martel‐Greiner with sculptural steel works by Claude Mercier, while Adrian Sassoon (London) will feature precious glass, ceramic and metal pieces of unparalleled quality, including Michael Eden’s parody of traditional vase forms, Julian Stair’s minimalist pottery and Giovanni Corvaja’s delicate gold masterpieces. The exquisite collection of vintage Art Deco pendants by Jean Desprès and Ruth Franquen at Jean‐David Botella (Paris) will bring jewellery to the fore, a trail culminating with striking contemporary pieces commissioned by Louisa Guinness Gallery (London) from leading artists including Antony Gormley, Tim Noble & Sue Webster, and Anish Kapoor. Complementing this at Didier Antiques (London) will be jewellery created by post‐war artists and sculptors such as Salvador Dalí, Lucio Fontana and Louise Bourgeois.

The Moët Hennessy‐Pavilion of Art & Design London Prize, which sponsors the donation of a winning decorative art piece to the prestigious collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum, remains a key highlight of the fair. The eminent judging panel, chaired by architect and designer Nigel Coates this year, and including personalities such as Mark Jones, David Collins, Bella Freud, Julian Treger, Tom Dixon, and Allegra Hicks, amongst others, will also honour two galleries with the title of ‘Best Exhibit’ and ‘Best Stand’.

To crown this landmark event, the Pavilion of Art & Design London will bring about an extraordinary collaboration between its charity sponsor, the NSPCC and Francis Sultana Ltd. Miniature chairs for children, produced in limited editions and decorated by leading international designers such as Zaha Hadid, Philippe Starck and Mattia Bonetti, will be at the core of this project curated and supported by Francis Sultana, in association with Outset. The chairs will be sold at the fair with all proceeds donated to the NSPCC.
