The event, which returns to its traditional spring dates (March 11-19), features 268 dealers, including 13 newcomers and those in the Showcase.
This section of the annual event is devoted to younger galleries, giving them a chance to stand at a major international fair. Previously the section was limited to five or six exhibitors.
Next year’s Showcase galleries are still being selected. Former members include Galerie Mendes of Paris, Runjeet Singh of London, Galerie Lowet de Wotrenge of Antwerp and ArtAncient of London.
In the main fair, exhibitor numbers will be up on this year when a shortened summer edition clashed with Masterpiece in London. Firms such as MacConnal- Mason and The Maas Gallery which skipped the last staging are back for next year.
Among the newcomers is a UK dealership, Prahlad Bubbar, specialising in Indian and Islamic art. The others are: Aicon (US), Berardi Galleria d’Arte (Italy), Tim van Laere Gallery (Belgium), Frides Laméris Glass & Antiques (Netherlands), Galerie Mendes (France), Patrick & Ondine Mestdagh (Belgium), PKM Gallery (South Korea), Rosenberg & Co (US), Templon (France), Caterina Tognon (Italy) and Univers du Bronze (France).
