The Melbourne Art Fair is the art world's equivalent of the gathering of the tribes. It shrinks the distance between galleries, artists and institutions spread across an entire continent. The concentrated energy inside the Exhibition Building dissolves the usual formalities of communication between gallerists, curators and arts administrators; suddenly they're all speed-dating.
