PAD is basically the French answer to the Frieze fair. I was lucky enough to go to one of the opening VIP nights and it certainly did not fail to amaze me. With a wide array of contemporary works, the collection included works by Picasso, Damien Hirst and Paul Klee. Galleries from New York, Paris and Germany, amongst others, bought their best pieces to entice the public and the art world into buying some magnificent, but uber expensive, art and design works. It is definitely worth a visit when it comes around next time!
