“It’s not about influence, it’s about obtaining knowledge, it’s about gathering information and it’s a very important meeting point, for encounters, for sharing information, for exchange. And not just exchange of objects, not just exchange of artworks for sale, but also exchange of ideas.”
– Chris Dercon, Director of Tate Modern
At 1-54 London 2015, Chris Dercon, Director Tate Modern, gave an interview to 1-54. He discussed the importance of fairs like 1-54 in a multi-layered and globalized world and why it is a place of exchange.
