ABOUT THIS FAIR:

BADA 2017 marks the not only the 25th anniversary edition of BADA's annual showcase for its members but also a contemporary rebranding of this august event now to be known as BADA 2017.  The rebranding of the fair is part of the 21st century plans to amalgamate the association with the fair as the association heads towards its centenary in 2018. 

BADA 2017 will celebrate a new look, focusing on BADA's commitment to beautiful items, but introducing a diverse and imaginative creative juxtaposition of the contemporary and the modern with the antique, with multi layered pan global displays of objects, with West African tribal pieces sitting alongside European and Asian antiquities.

A 3 metre long natural white ash abstract sculpture by Irish designer Joseph Walsh, entitled Lilium I, commissioned by Peter Petrou will be suspended in the entrance to the event.

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THIS FAIR:

With more than 90 premier specialist exhibitors,representing the fields of painting, sculpture, furniture, ceramics, jewellery, glass, metalware, the event offers collectors, curators, art professionals, interior designers and the public the chance to view and purchase outstanding pieces of traditional, modern and contemporary art, design and antiques.

Renowned dealers exhibiting for the first time include Mallett & Son Antiques, Anthony Outred, Nicola Isherwood, and joint exhibitors Alexander di Caraci and James McWhirter, while many young dealers such as Matthew Holder Works of Art and The Parker Gallery will also make their debut.

Alexander di Caraci will present a unique highlight for the event - the heaviest object ever exhibited!  An early C19th Italian solid travertine bench carved in the shape of an empire lit bateau, for which Caraci's stand will have to be strengthened and reinforced.

There will also be a particular focus on modern, contemporary and C20th presentations, with fine examples on display by Beaux Arts London, Jonathan Cooper, Matthew Foster and John Adams Fine Art.

Their presentations will be complemented by a number of traditional displays, comprising items spanning at least 11 centuries.  Some of the oldest works will be displayed by Gibson Antiques, specialists in Chinese and Japanese ceramics and works of art, while at the other end of the scale, John Adams Fine Art will display paintings and sculpture from contemporary C20th French artists.

An exciting loan exhibition for BADA 2017 will be a presentation of works by British watercolourist Samuel Prout. ‘Samuel Prout: A Grand Tour in Watercolour’ gathers over 20 of Prout’s finest works, many of which sourced from private collections and have not been on public display for over 50 years.

Other highlights include the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association's display, featuring a first edition of Cecil Beaton’s Book of Beauty (1930), antique timepieces, including C17th to C19th English clocks presented by horologists Tobias Birch and Howard Walwyn; a bugs and butterflies display by specialist antique jeweller Sandra Cronin and a scarlet japanned cabinet, of which only three exist in the world from Godson & Coles.
