Welcome to the Pavilion of Art & Design London
10-14 October 2012, Berkeley Square
Successfully returning to Mayfair for the 4th year, the Pavilion of Art & Design London will bring together exceptional works of Modern Art, Design, Decorative Arts, Photography, Jewellery and Tribal Art from 1860 to today.
With 50 distinguished international exhibitors from Barcelona, Brussels, Cologne, Geneva, London, Milan, New York, Paris and Zurich, more galleries than ever before will be exhibiting at this year's fair. The strong rooster of returning galleries will be complemented by a selection of leading new galleries, offering an eclectic display of paintings, sculpure and furniture, emphasising the harmony between art and design. For the first time, the fair will exhibit Tribal Art.
Moët Hennessy will once again sponsor the Moët Hennessy-PAD London Prize donating a major piece of Design or Decorative Art to the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Chaired by architect and designer Nigel Coates the judging panel, compromised of prominent figures in the fields of art, fashion, culture, communication and business, will also present awards for Best Stand and Best Object.
Contemporary design galleries will feature the latest works from renowned international designers including Studio Job, Vincent Dubourg and Sebastian Brajkovic, the 2008 winner of the Moët-Hennessy-PAD London Prize. Glass sculptures by Yoichi Ohira, last year's prize winner, will feature alongside contemporary decorative art works and naturalistic pottery from Kate Malone, glass by Francis Vizner and a selection of rare Design and decorative Art Deco pieces. Exceptional examples of 20th century Italian Design primarily from the 1940s to 1960s and vintage design works by Max Ingrand, Fontana Arte and Gio Ponti will also be on display.
Expanding the visual repertoire beyond 20th century Modern Masters, the fair will feature work by established contemporary artists such as Ai Weiwei, Bridget Riley, Christopher Wool and Richard Prince alongside exceptional photographic images by Guy Bourdin and Peter Beard.
