New presenters include Berlin’s Robert Morat and Migrant Bird Space, Gowen Contemporary from Geneva, Galerie 193 and Thierry Marlat of Paris, Riga’s ISSP, and Gallery Bart from Amsterdam. Of these and the returning galleries, fairgoers should look out for highlights like work by the Zimbabwean artist Moira Forjaz presented by AKKA Project, images by Nikita Teryoshin with Galerie Koschmieder, photographs from the Dutch artist Lisandro Suriel, shared by Chrysalid Gallery, and Gallery Peter Sillem presenting work by Anastasia Samoylova.
