Masterpiece London: Cross-Collecting at Royal Hospital Chelsea

Masterpiece London: Cross-Collecting at Royal Hospital Chelsea

28 June - 4 July ‘18

Masterpiece London has established itself as the world's leading cross-collecting fair, offering the finest works of art, design, furniture and jewellery, from antiquity to the present day. This unmissable event at the height of the capital's summer season provides an unparalleled opportunity for new and established collectors to discover exceptional works for sale from 160 international exhibitors. This year’s edition showcases rare and important Impressionist and Modernist paintings; compelling presentations celebrating British art and design; exquisite jewellery; art and objects from antiquity as well as contemporary work by artists including Marina Abramović, Ibrahim El Salahi, Chiharu Shiota and Rob & Nick Carter. The Royal Bank of Canada returns as the Fair’s principal sponsor for the fifth successive year.

Masterpiece Presents
MASTERPIECE PRESENTS, in collaboration with FactumArte and Lisson Gallery, will showcase new works by Marina Abramović, Five Stages of Maya Dance, in an immersive, specially conceived area. This unseen body of work comprises five alabaster portraits of Marina Abramović which merge performance, light and sculpture. Their hauntingly physical presence decomposes into intricately carved landscapes of alabaster as you move around the pieces.

New Additions
Longstanding Masterpiece exhibitors including Richard Green, Adrian Sassoon, Wartski, Robilant + Voena, Verdura/Herz-Belperron and Dickinson are joined by carefully selected new additions for 2018 including: ArtAncient, Ben Brown Fine Arts, Cahn, CINDY CHAO The Art Jewel, Day and Faber, DIE GALERIE, Galerie Yann Ferrandin, Flowers Gallery, James Graham-Stewart, Hammer Galleries, Hauser & Wirth, Galerie Henze & Ketterer, Hill-Stone, Hunter / Harrison, Kallos Gallery, Landau Fine Art, Lullo • Pampoulides, Maruani Mercier, Moussaieff Jewellers, Sarah Myerscough Gallery, Jill Newhouse Gallery, Partners & Mucciaccia, R & Company, Fabio Salini and Vigo.

Cross-Collecting
Masterpiece’s cross-collecting ethos can be seen throughout the Fair, where exhibitors specialising in a wide variety of disciplines and eras are brought together, offering the broadest spectrum of works of any art fair, with classical and contemporary shown side-by-side. Visitors will encounter presentations which carefully combine furniture, sculpture and works of art from all periods, unified by quality. Examples of this ethos can be seen at Benjamin Proust, Perrin Fine Art, Robilant + Voena, and Safani Gallery & Geoffrey Diner.

Reflecting this breadth, new exhibitor ArtAncient’s presentation will feature a rare ‘shooting star’ meteorite, formed 4.6 billion years ago, whilst specially commissioned contemporary artwork will be presented at Blain|Southern with an installation by Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota.

Les Enluminures and Daniel Crouch will stage a carefully curated presentation entitled ‘A Brief History of Time: From Matins to Mars’. The booth will display celestial maps, instruments, illuminated manuscripts and medieval and Renaissance jewellery, inviting viewers to contemplate the perception of time across history. Hauser & Wirth’s ‘Wunderkammer’, or cabinet of curiosities, will also combine disciplines with contemporary and modern works by Louise Bourgeois, Phyllida Barlow, Subodh Gupta and Philip Guston, presented alongside 18th and 19th century furniture.

Design, Furniture and Decorative Arts
With a booth inspired by the Surrealist poet and patron Edward James, David Gill Gallery will be bringing together contemporary works from their roster of artists and designers including Zaha Hadid, Michele Oka Doner and Mattia Bonetti. Modern and contemporary design will also be presented by 18 Davies Street Gallery, Rose Uniacke and Modernity Stockholm. New exhibitor Sarah Myerscough Gallery will showcase unique handcrafted contemporary pieces of design by John Makepeace amongst others, and Sinai & Sons Ltd. will focus on the work of Italian painter, sculptor, interior decorator and engraver Piero Fornasetti. Hitomi Hosono’s exquisite collaboration with Wedgwood will be revealed at Adrian Sassoon, and Katie Jones will present a selection of contemporary Japanese applied arts.
