- We are very pleased to be part of these fine fairs and are looking forward to seeing existing and new clients, says director Andrew Duncanson.
Modernity has participated in over 50 fairs and exhibitions since it opened in 1998, mainly as a way to reach international collectors and museums, which do not have the possibility to visit the gallery in Stockholm.
- We started by only exhibiting at one international fair and have then been accepted to more and more fairs as the gallery has grown. We like meeting our clients at the fairs, explains Andrew Duncanson.
Modernity will be present at five of the world’s most renowned fairs in 2017.
