ART FAIR LONDON
Like Frieze, the Zoo Art Fair, which was held at the Royal Academy’s Burlington Street galleries, concentrates on new work. “Several of us did very well,” says Nick Hackworth, director of London’s Paradise Row gallery, which sold four works by Russian artist Gosha Ostretsov for £13,000 each within the first half an hour.
“We’ve had a lot of major collectors who would normally have been looking at very established artists, coming to look for new, exciting younger artists here. Maybe the trend this month is that while overvalued works at the top and middle of the market have suffered, emerging art is fine.”
