Latest news

MASTERPIECE PRESENTS launched last year as a large-scale, dedicated exhibition space within Masterpiece London, transforming the Fair's entrance and providing a platform for innovative, immersive works of art.

This year we are pleased to showcase a new body of work by Marina Abramović, Five Stages of Maya Dance. Presented by Factum Arte, in collaboration with Lisson Gallery, this set of five alabaster portraits of Marina Abramović merge performance, light and sculpture. They have a hauntingly physical presence but, as you move around the pieces, they decompose into intricately carved ‘landscapes’ of alabaster.

These works are the result of an extended period of experimentation that the artist has been carrying out in Factum Arte's workshops in Madrid. Through the use of carved alabaster, Abramović is exploring new ways to give form to her ideas.

Masterpiece London, sponsored by Royal Bank of Canada, is delighted to announce the exhibitors joining the 2018 edition of the Fair, which runs from 28 June - 4 July at the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

 

Masterpiece London 2018 welcomes a strong roster of new exhibitors including Hill-Stone, Hammer Galleries, Hauser & Wirth, Jill Newhouse Gallery, Kallos Gallery, Landau Fine Art, Lullo Pampoulides, Vigo Gallery, and jewellers Moussaieff and Cindy Chao, exhibiting alongside returning galleries that include Agnews, Blain|Southern, Robilant + Voena, Dickinson, Amir Mohtashemi, Galerie Chenel, Rupert Wace, Thomas Gibson Fine Art, Modernity Stockholm and Vertes.

 

The thoughtful presentation of rare and individual pieces, which Masterpiece has become known for, will continue throughout the Fair with galleries including Axel Vervoordt, Rose Uniacke, Benjamin Proust, Perrin Fine Art and Alessandra de Castro pairing art and design from a range of eras in striking ways. The fair’s cross-collecting ethos will be further reflected in Safani Gallery Inc and Geoffrey Diner Gallery’s shared booth, where a mix of ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman antiquities will be displayed alongside iconic 20th century and contemporary design. In the field of rare books, Les Enluminures will show fine examples of illuminated manuscripts and medieval and Renaissance jewellery, alongside historic rare maps brought by Daniel Crouch. An immersive booth from David Gill Gallery will recreate an interior from the home of the famed Surrealist patron, Edward James, with contemporary works of art from the gallery’s artists.

 

Masterpiece’s representation of Modern British Art will be as important as ever, with Osborne Samuel Gallery, Offer Waterman, Piano Nobile, Robin Katz, Hazlitt Holland-Hibbert, Richard Green, Alan Wheatley, Crane Kalman Gallery and new exhibitor Redfern Gallery. Works from Italian Modern Masters Alberto Burri, Lucio Fontana and Alighiero Boetti will be offered by Mazzoleni, Cortesi Gallery, M&L Fine Art, Tornabuoni, and newcomer Partners & Mucciaccia.

 

European Modern and Impressionist picture galleries, such as Dickinson, Landau Fine Art, Stair Sainty, Mayoral, Hammer Galleries and Vertes will be bringing exceptional works of art by Pablo Picasso, Claude Monet, Joan Miró, Camille Pissarro and Gerhard Richter. Die Galerie will bring Surrealist pieces in a booth shared with M F Toninelli Art Moderne.

 

Spanning 16th century engravings to contemporary screen prints, works on paper by major artists, including Albrecht Dürer, Andy Warhol, Peter Blake and Howard Hodgkin, will be offered by Sims Reed Gallery, Lyndsey Ingram, Long-Sharp Gallery, Peter Fetterman, William Weston and new exhibitors Hill-Stone Inc and Day & Faber.

 

With Thomas Chippendale’s tercentenary this year, Ronald Philips will present a booth including 20 Chippendale pieces. Fine furniture and decorative arts from the 17th century to the present day will also be offered by Apter-Fredericks, H. Blairman & Sons, Steinitz, Godson & Coles, Thomas Coulborn & Sons, Edward Hurst and new exhibitor James Graham-Stewart. Modernity Stockholm, Oscar Graf, 88 Gallery, Linley and newcomer Sarah Myerscough Gallery will present classic modern and contemporary design.

 

Masterpiece’s contingent of ancient art dealers will include new exhibitors Kallos Gallery and ArtAncient who will join Axel Vervoordt, Rupert Wace Ancient Art, Antichita Valerio Turchi and Galerie Chenel in exhibiting fine works from classical antiquity.

 

Masterpiece continues to be a destination for collectors of exceptional jewellery works. Unique contemporary pieces can be purchased from Cindy Chao, Van Cleef & Arpels, Boghossían and Moussaieff and a selection of antique jewellery can be found at Wartski, Simon Teakle, Verdura, Hancocks and S.J. Phillips.

 

Peter Harrington will be returning with their presentation of rare and historic books; ethnographic works will be shown by Patrick & Ondine Mestdagh Gallery and Finch & Co; fine porcelain and ceramics from the 16th century to the present day will be presented by E & H Manners, John Whitehead, Adrian Sassoon, Michele Beiny Inc and W. W. Warner Antiques. British and continental silver and silver-gilt will be brought by N & I Franklin and Koopman Rare Art.

Masterpiece’s inimitable strength is its ability to transcend the traditional pigeonholing of art into chronologies and cultures. Our exhibitors’ works span all eras and disciplines, and include many of the world's most distinguished dealers and galleries.

 

Thoughtful juxtaposition allows one to encounter beautiful works of art and have one's eyes opened to the unfamiliar; promoting a serendipitous experience which does not discriminate between the old and new, but encourages all artistic endeavours to be seen for their own inherent qualities.

 

Alongside this, scrupulous vetting ensures that each exhibit is genuine, in good condition, correctly labelled and worthy of exhibition at Masterpiece.

 

In this edition, discover how Masterpiece is building a robust market for the future by supporting the next generation of dealers, curators and vetters; gain insight into the mind of a renowned cross-collector and patron of the arts through our interview with Lord Browne of Madingley; and explore how travel, style and luxury went hand-in-hand with the Art Deco aesthetic.

 

Finally, discover some of our favourite pieces offered for sale by Masterpiece exhibitors. We look forward to welcoming you to Masterpiece London 2018.
