London Art Fair is back this January for its 30th anniversary.
From the 17th-21st of this month you can immerse yourself in modern and contemporary art from across the world; and you don’t have to be an avid collector to appreciate the incredible works being exhibited. Doors swing open to the public on Wednesday 17th January at 11am so if you haven’t yet booked tickets, get on the case.
Here are five highlights on this year’s schedule to note.
Art of the Nation: Five Artists Choose
This year’s art fair partner, Art UK, has created the exhibition together with five contemporary artists, Sonia Boyce, Mat Collishaw, Haroon Mirza, Oscar Murillo and Rose Wylie. The artists have chosen their favourite pieces from Art UK, based around a personal theme, that will make up the exhibition.
The Hemera Collective has curated this edition of Photo50 titled ‘Resolution is not the point’. The exhibition showcase handpicked photographic artworks from artists such as Pio Abad, Qiana Mestrich and Marie Yates.
If you love contemporary art you should not miss the Art Projects; a showcase of work from galleries all over the world. A few names to note include Bowerbank Ninow from Auckland, New Zealand and Galerie Voss from Düsseldorf. Familiar? They soon will be.
Quick, Quick, Quick
In the screening room you’ll be able to see Pryle Behrman’s Quick, Quick, Quick. This exhibition shows a selection of short animated GIFs, films and videos. Not one to miss for fans of moving art pieces.
The Art Projects Artist Award
De’Longhi is back as sponsor of the Art Projects Artist Award that will give one outstanding artist £2,500. The winning artist will be selected and announced at the Fair on Tuesday 16 January 2018.
