Re: [BKARTS] Prints banned from Frieze Art Fair



My understanding - since it's the Frieze Art Fair -
that it's not antiques, but contemporary art, and that
part of the exclusion is that prints are no longer
considered important contemporary art. I'm not sure
any book art, antique or otherwise, is permitted
either.
