London's leading 20th century art, design and decorative arts event is celebrating 10 years of success this October, with the construction of a magnificent white tent on Berkeley Square – a departure from the event's iconic black pavilion that has become a signature of PAD London. The event has come a long way from its humble beginnings with just 20 exhibitors in 2007, now boasting over 65 international participants showcasing their wares to everyone from collectors and museum experts through to interior specialists and members of the public, attracted by the broad range of high quality art and design on offer.
The first fair in London to bring art and design under one roof, PAD has been credited with raising the profile of design as high-end collectible art, showcasing the best the world has to offer alongside other mediums including photography, jewellery and tribal art. This year, the roster of galleries will expand to include 14 new additions, alongside a program of engaging talks and a decision on the winner of the 10th PAD Prize. PAD co-founder and art dealer Patrick Perrin has commented, "our aim was to bring to London an experience like no other, to share our passion for eclecticism and beautiful objects, and create an elegant salon in the style of a cabinet of curiosities."
PAD London will run from the 5th to the 9th of October in Berkeley Square
