“the French really are a myopic lot” is your first comment on an Art Fair that you have half seen. But it is not your fault: “a snooty French guard sniffed at your press badge when you arrived for a preview and blocked your way”. Maybe you tried to enter the Musee du Louvres rather than the Fiac in the Cour Carree. The French might lack imagination but you certainly don't.
' “FIAC offers more to chew on than Frieze,” she said'.
Phew, that really ramps up the stakes.
