Artsy | Inside the 12th Edition of artgenève, Where Variety Reigns Supreme

Among those traveling furthest to attend the fair was first-time exhibitor Pearl Lam Galleries, which has physical locations in Hong Kong and Shanghai. The gallery was attracted to the strong European collector base, though attending the fair is also an extension of its mission to “bridge East and West” through its programming and international presence, explained Alena Ivanova, a director at the gallery. Artists from China, Nigeria, Slovakia, the U.K., and the U.S. were among those represented at the gallery’s booth, which was foregrounded by an imposing, 6.5-by-13-foot diptych by Zhu Jinshi, a pioneer of Chinese abstraction and installation art.
