Mtec Services | Artfairs 2018

Our Art Fair team have just returned from another successful Art Basel Hong Kong, where we have been overseeing the shipment and installation of works for a number of galleries. As per the other major fairs we attend, the Mtec team were on site to provide shipping estimates to aid client sales, to assist with dispersal at the end of the fair and look after the de-install and return shipment of works to the UK. During the fair we had the pleasure of being able to visit some of the stunning booths as well as pop-up events around the city, including watching legendary Chinese performance artist the Frog King (Kwok Mango-Ho) write exhibition-goers names in Chinese at the 10 Chancery Lane Gallery booth.

We are looking forward to continuing our work at art fairs throughout 2018 and will be attending the following over the Spring/Summer:

Frieze New York – May, 3 -6, 18 (Preview May,2)

TEFAF Spring New York – May, 3 – 5, 18 (Preview May, 2)

Art Basel – Jun, 14 – 18, 2018 (Preview Jun, 13) *

*Fine Art and Rigging Technicians will be present & available to assist throughout the fair

In preparation for the above, our specialised Art Fair team will be working with clients utilising a full range of services from preparation and shipping, through to condition reporting, installation, packing and, at our Enfield Gallery Services facility, private viewing arrangements.

Art Fair registrars will be sending clients regular schedules in advance so that you can carefully plan the most convenient shipping method. We can assist with Fine Art transport, FCL and LCL sea freight and air freight. We can also arrange MAFI shipments for any oversized works, making sure they will safely travel around the world.

Our growing team of skilled art handling and rigging technicians, with long-standing experience in the art fairs, will be present at all major fairs (see above), assisting galleries with artworks of all scales and media. We are also able to draw on our renowned project management and gallery services teams to provide assistance with more complex artworks or satellite projects beyond the fair, including, where appropriate, the use of our state-of-the-art viewing facilities in the UK.

At the end of each fair we will be present during deinstallation to assist with return shipments and client deliveries and installations. We are also able to assist with any Customs formalities when shipping to any of the 5 continents.
