ART13: Exclusive Review for FAULT Issue 14

The first three days of March saw London Olympia Transformed into an exciting hub of contemporary art, packed with international collectors, artists, gallery owners and anyone with an interest in art.  

This is ART13.

Art13’s debut was extremely well received and attended and the fair will doubtless build up as an important event in the global art calendar.

VIP day was very busy with a number of major collectors and a few surprise visitors.

Harry Styles of One Direction turned up and bought Ben Turnbull’s small gun-behind-glass sculpture, In Case of Emergency, along with several other works for his new house.

Other guests included Ron Dennis, executive chairman of the McLaren Group, steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal, American businessman and majority shareholder in Arsenal Football Club, Stan Kroenke, and Dasha Zhukova.

Pearl Lam Galleries, eponymously named after its flamboyant owner, had two stands turned into one and drew a great deal of attention because of the large, bold works, including several by Zhu Jinshi, previously profiled in B Beyond Magazine, FAULT’s sister publication.

FAULT had a media stand, along with B Beyond and the Linveco Cultural Foundation (a registered UK charity supporting multi-disciplinary creative talent). The stand showcased not just different issues of both publications but also the works of some of the artists/members of the foundation who have contributed cover artwork and been featured in the periodicals, such as Christy Lee Rogers, Anthony Russell and Michael Taylor [examples of works on display are shown above & below].
