    Tribal Art London runs from September 6-9 with 23 exhibitors, the biggest in its ten year history.  There will be a diverse range of works with prices from the low hundreds to over £20,000.  Taking place a week prior to Parcours des Mondes Paris,  the biggest tribal art event in the world which runs this year from September 12-17 the event attracts many international specialist dealers and museum curators.

    Well-known tribal art collectors who attend the fair include Mark Blackburn (based in Hawaii, focusing on Oceanic art), collectors of Aboriginal and Oceanic art Sam and Sharon Singer (U.S.A.), Antonio Lunari (Italy), and African art collector Jonathan Lowen (UK). Institutions are always in attendance, such as Quai Branly, the British Museum and the Royal Academy.  Here is a small selection:
