The Best of Art Berlin Contemporary 2012 | Artinfo

Art Berlin Contemporary (ABC) kicked off on Thursday morning, dropping its former preclusion towards a pan-fair theme and expanding into a third hall of Berlin’s Station center. Though sales have not been particularly brisk, foot traffic is heavy and, most importantly, the work on display represents the highest quality the fair has seen in recent memory.

Structured booths or walls have been dropped for a modular framework of scaffoldings and temporary partisians. ABC also does away with the migraine-inducing florescent lighting of most fairs in exchange for film spotlights directed on the works. These touches both add up to create a more exhibition-like feel — certainly much more so than during it’s “curated” years. Visitors have responded positively. While ABC 2012 is the most international that the fair has ever been, the strongest booths mostly originated from Berlin galleries, with the minimal shipping requirements and freedom of installation space allowing for works of truly impressive scale for an art fair, especially coming from some of the younger galleries. ARTINFO scoured the offerings to pick out the 10 best booths from the overall strong offerings on view.
