Zoo roundup….

Posted by cathedralofshit on October 17, 2009

We finally made it yesterday to Zoo, previously the younger fair held at the Royal Academy. This year it had moved to more spacious surroundings in the East, in three old warehouses, which were decidedly Manolo-unfriendly.

Zoo this year was a slightly confusing mix of curated exhibitions by some of London’s not for profit organisations and former Ancient and Modern director Rob Tufnell, who is forming a solo career, leaving Andrew Ridgely to run the gallery. The stands were chock full of what one collector described as ‘a return to being able to find some real bargains’. The solo setion was a little confusing and the quality was questionable.

One highlight was seeing Bistrotheque’s David and Pablo manning their own coffee stand. As they apparently had all week. It’s nice to see the bosses getting their hands dirty, and we’re sure, knowing the prices of their cocktails, that it’s not because they can’t afford the staff….
