It is a significant number for the fair, despite overall dealer numbers being down on the last in-person event in 2020. This staging includes 242 from 20 countries, in contrast to the previous edition which had 285 from 22 countries and 25 newcomers. Among those fresh to the main section of the fair are UK dealers Adrian Alan, Brun Fine Art, Kent Antiques, Thomas Coulborn & Sons and White Cube. Joost van den Bergh, who previously has stood alongside Ben Janssens, is taking his own booth for the first time (Ben Janssens will continue to take his own stand).
Returning exhibitors include many familiar faces. Dickinson, Daniel Katz, Charles Ede and Mullany are among the 58 UK business attending.
Since its 2020 edition was cut short as coronavirus gripped Europe, the fair has not taken place in person. This edition is shorter than previous events and runs in the summer from June 25-30 (plus a full preview day on June 24), rather than in its normal March slot. It returns to its regular spot in the calendar next year when it is scheduled to run from March 11-19.
