So it has been fairly quiet on here these last few months…sorry! I took up an exciting opportunity at Art15, London’s Global Art Fair, and it slowly took over my life – my fault rather than their’s. The fair opened for a third year at Olympia on the 20th of May and closed this past Saturday on the 23rd – a complete blur of a weekend, and I’m still not really sure what happened to be honest. I thought it would therefore only be appropriate for my first 2015 post (ahh, it has actually been so long since I last posted something on A Collection of Curiosities!!) to be Art15-related, and have pooled together my favourite pieces from this year’s fair – where 150 modern and contemporary galleries from over 40 countries came together to show all types of work in one place.
