Following on from their success in Hong Kong in May, at Art Basel 2013 the Alan Cristea Gallery has sold works by all the artists displayed on their stand.

Alan Cristea Gallery End of Fair Report - Art Basel 2013

Josef Albers, Die Oberflache, 1965

Among the highlights was the sale of two sets of a new series of six lightbox works by Michael Craig-Martin for 30,000 CHF each, along with a single lightbox from the series, Soup Can (2013), for 6,000 CHF. Two portfolios of prints by Josef Albers were also sold as complete sets: a set of twelve screenprints by Albers sold for $110,000 and a set of five of the artist’s prints was also sold for 35,000 CHF.
Speaking about the gallery’s presence at the fair, founder Alan Cristea said:
“I have been taking part in Art Basel since 1973, and 2013 has been a great year for us here. We have sold works by every artist that we brought to the fair and introduced artists to new collectors.
What is unique about Art Basel is that it puts most contemporary art within a context that goes back to beginning of the 20th Century. And what is particularly important for me when coming to Basel is that the audiences which the fair attracts are more intelligent, educated and informed than at most other art fairs.
We are an artist-led gallery and we feel that Art Basel provides the perfect platform for launching new work by our artists. I enjoy watching the development here of the profile of the artists who I first brought to the fair many years ago and who are now household names, such as Julian Opie and Michael Craig-Martin (who also has work on show as part of Parcours this year).
We appreciate the fact that Ernst Beyeler launched Art Basel with a section dedicated to showing prints and editions, meaning that they have the same prominence in the fair as they occupy in the minds of the artists who create them.
The quality of the exhibitions and events around the fair is consistently improving too. For a print expert it was a joy to visit the Picasso exhibition at the Kunstmuseaum in which his etchings and engravings were shown alongside, and with the same care as, his paintings and sculpture.”

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
