Beyond its scope as London’s biggest art fair, Masterpiece London presents an opportunity to learn about art and the art market. With an expanded Talks and Education Program, the Masterpiece London 2018 Talks series has something to offer every art lover, including daily highlight tours with postgraduates of Sotheby's Institute of Art, a curated lecture series and informal lectures at various stands. For those who appreciate the more ethereal pleasures of life, there will be Champagne tastings with Perrier-Jouet.
Chopard will be hosting “High Jewellery and Fine Watchmaking Craftsmanship Presentations” daily through the four days of the fair (June 28-July 4). Also, Susan Moore will host a series of Slow Art Workshops in the Chopard Lounge at noon each day of the fair.
