    On a gloomy, overcast Wednesday afternoon in Cologne, the European art set descended upon the city for this year’s annual Art Cologne fair. As the focus of the German art scene shifts increasingly to Berlin and the European art scene has already shifted to Basel, the devolution of influence has moved decidedly away from the Rhineland. Nevertheless, a quick glance of the list of exhibitors reveals that the art powerhouses David Zwirner, Thaddaeus Ropac, and Hauser & Wirth are not yet ready to concede their presence.

  8. Browsing Art Dubai

    “The thing about Art Dubai is that you see stuff that you wouldn’t see anywhere else,” said a regular visitor, and he’s right. While many art fairs offer experiences so similar that they all seem to blend into one, Art Dubai has developed a strong identity: it’s anchored in the UAE and the region at large and embraces the international. No small feat.

    The great and the good of the art world came in droves to the VIP opening. Collectors such as London’s Fatima and Eskander Maleki, Libyan princess Alia Al Senussi, and Saudi Abdullah Al-Turki were all spotted strolling the aisles.

Over ninety meticulously selected galleries from five continents mount a dynamic survey of emerging and innovative contemporary artists from thirty nations. Not to be missed, VOLTA NY is an invitational show of emerging solo artists’ projects, a tightly-focused, boutique event that is a place for discovery. The strict solo format gives the New York fair its unique character, which curators and collectors often compare favorably to experiencing a series of intense studio visits.
