ART FAIR REPORT
Keeping It Familiar
The August to October itinerary brings a batch of young but comfortably established regional art fairs to the fore. And it is at these events—Art Taipei (August 20–24), ShContemporary (September 9–12), the Korea International Art Fair (September 9–13), Art Singapore (October 8–11) and Frieze (October 14–17)—that the shifting desires and budgets of the art-buying public can be measured: the pubescent fair, like the pubescent person, can transform in an instant. For different reasons, June’s Art Basel and July’s Menasart Fair brought less teenage drama and pathos.
