This is always a very special experience gathering as it does galleries from around the world and this year promises to be a no less exciting and stimulating experience. Visitors should not forget either the sculpture park a few minutes away in the English Garden, where this year’s works are curated by Clare Lilley, Director of Programme at Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Here is a small selection of some of the galleries that you can see when visiting – something I do recommend you try and do.

The Thomas Dane Gallery (Stand E6) brings sculpture indoors by concentrating on British sculpture with works by Michael Landy, Phillip King and Alexandre da Cunha.

On Hauser & Wirth’s stand (D6) they celebrate artist Mark Wallinger’s joining them by asking him to curate their stand. Wallinger has taken Sigmund Freud’s study in his Hampstead home (now a museum) as the inspiration for the thematic installation, featuring the gallery’s artists, which is based on Freud’s theories on conscious and unconscious. Should be interesting!
