My Highlights from arteBA 2014

arteBA is usually a crowded fair, so it’s very easy to get lost and miss some interesting artworks, particularly if you like the kind of small, modest, and silent pieces that I like. These don’t occupy the main walls so you have to discover them. But when you find them, you feel that the exhausting task of wandering around the fair has a purpose. As a curator, I like to establish connections among visual statements, formal solutions, and ideas. I don’t perceive isolated artworks. So the fair is also, to me, the ground for a journey led by curiosity, attraction, and heart.
