artgenève’s 7th Edition Pairs with PAD

The artgenève fair took place last week in Geneva, from February 1—4. The seventh edition of the salon confirmed its status as one of the best emerging contemporary art fairs. On view were presentations from around 80 contemporary and modern galleries from 16 countries. This year also marked the first collaboration between artgenève and Pavilion of Art and Design (PAD) which brought a new dynamic to the fair. 

The quality of artworks was most impressive. Not surprisingly, galleries brought their best. There were pieces by Chiharu Shiota and George Segal at Galerie Daniel Templon; Jean-Michel Othoniel and Takashi Murakami at Perrotin; Abdoulaye Konaté and Jake and Dinos Chapman at Blain|Southern; and Lucio Fontana at Galerie de Jonckheere.

If some were surprised by an absence of design-leaning spaces like Carpenters Workshop Gallery, for example, PAD was a real gem of a counterpoint. The most beautiful consoles were shown at Herve Van Der Straeten, and Garrido Gallery offered a number of beautiful objects, as well. 

We’re already looking forward to the eighth edition!
