Europe was overcome by exhibition mood. Art Brussels, Art Cologne Gallery and Weekend Berlin have taken place. On May 6 the New York Frieze Art Fair came to the end, and there are still a lot of important events coming up: the exhibition of the modern art Documenta, taking place every five years, the exhibition of sculptures Skulptur Projekte Münster, Art Basel in Basel.
The Frieze fair this year coincided with TEFAF – yes, that weekend there was something to watch in New York!
