This year is set to be the strongest yet for tribal art at PAD with the added participation of Bernard Dulon, whose collection of African art has attracted the attention of renowned institutions and museums worldwide. The field of antiquities will be introduced with David Ghezelbash and Gordian Weber Kunsthandel exhibiting a range of exceptional works from ancient Rome, Egypt and Greece. Japanese art and armour will also make a first-time appearance at PAD with expert gallery Jean-Christophe Charbonnier, adding to the fair’s diversity and originality.
Once again, luminaries from the worlds of design, art and fashion will come together at PAD to select the winners of the PAD London-Moët Hennessy Prize. The prestigious judging panel, chaired by Jasper Conran, and including architect Amanda Levete, designer Tom Dixon and Serpentine Gallery director Julia Peyton-Jones, will determine the awards for the Best Stand, the Best Fine Art Piece, the Best Contemporary Design Piece and the Best 20thC Decorative Art Piece.
An innovative design project of MwangaBora solar lamps promises to be a major highlight at PAD this year. Created by renowned Kenyan engineer Evans Wadongo – named a CNN Hero in 2010 – the lamps will feature in an installation at the entrance of the fair conceived by fashion designer Reed Krakoff. The lamps will be sold to benefit Wadongo’s organisationSustainable Development for All Kenya(SDFA-Kenya), a not-for-profit that creates opportunities for education, sustainable development and economic empowerment throughout Africa.
