Frieze Art Fair Still Exceeded Expectations

The Frieze fair in London showed that the interest in contemporary art remains strong.
Art is very tangible, it’s not stocks.

Roger Tatley from the Houser and Wirth gallery, based in Zurich and London, told CNN: “We were a little anxious, but this fair turned out to be the best we’ve had.” Houser and Wirth sold almost all its works in the booth including a Henry Moore piece for $2.7 million. Whilst Moore’s art represents the higher end of prices at Frieze; most works at the fair are cheaper than at auction houses, therefore reflecting a wider art-buying audience. [from cnn]
