‘The Unmissable Art Fair’ Masterpiece 2018 London

Earlier this week Nicky was invited to the preview day of Masterpiece London. The event at Royal Hospital Chelsea has established itself as the world’s leading cross-collecting fair, offering the finest works of art, design, furniture and jewellery, from antiquity to today.

Masterpiece is at the height of the capital’s summer season, providing 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, presentations celebrating British art and design, jewellery, art and objects from antiquity as well as contemporary work from some of the most celebrated artists of the decade.

In collaboration with FactumArte and Lisson Gallery, Masterpiece showcased new works by Marina Abramović, Five Stages of Maya Dance, in an immersive, specially conceived area.

This unseen body of work comprises of five alabaster portraits of Marina Abramović which merges performance, light and sculpture.

The below works and stands are pieces that caught Nicky’s eye…
