June is casual, a term that, however, has little to do with the type of art on show: strong presentations by a tight selection of galleries and project spaces.

The experience of descending the narrow and wobbly spiral staircase into a concrete cave full of artworks was nicely coupled with the refreshing beauty of an untamed garden on the ground floor, where the opening dinner–provided by a socially engaged organization–felt more like a summer picnic with friends than an art fair networking party. From its graphic design to its selection of galleries, this year’s June confirmed it is for the up-and-coming niche within the niche.
