No matter how prepared you think you are when you go to an art fair, you’ll always be caught unawares by a gallery who is showing an artist you weren’t expecting, or by a new side to an artist you thought you knew. In the most unlikely corner of the hall you can come across […]

The third iteration of Art Fairs London is upon us, and while there are fewer of the big name galleries from Seoul coming this year there are still plenty of Korean artists who are new to London.

This year LKL avoided the crowded opening evening of the London Art Fair, opting for a quieter evening later in the week. It’s something we’ll do in future. There still seem to be waiters wandering round offering free drinks, but with fewer punters around you can actually move between the galleries you want to see […]

It was always going to be difficult to get round the three openings last Thursday: Bethnal Green, Bloomsbury and Mayfair are not easy to squeeze in on the way home after work. And as it happened I got to none of them, instead entertaining an overseas work colleague at the Old Justice, which I think […]

Korean artists and galleries put on a good show at Art14, and got plenty of attention from the press.
