The information below is for 2020. The 2021 event will have an online version due to COVID-19 restrictions.
London Art Fair brings together both British and international galleries as well as the curated Art Projects and Photo50 for a giant start to the year’s art calendar. It’s a huge collection of modern and contemporary art on display. What’s more, there’ll be a wide range of art for sale—some at (relatively) reasonable prices.
What to see at London art fair
As one of London’s biggest art events, there’s a whole host of traditional galleries exploring a multitude of artists, themes and origins. This year’s museum partner is Southampton City Gallery, which boasts one of the UK’s finest collections of British contemporary and modern art. Photo50 will also return—this year celebrating a host of women over 50 and their considerable (sadly often overlooked) contributions to art photography. Also of note is Threading Forms, a diverse collection of textile-based artpieces. Finally are the talks and tours, which cover life as a collector and the future of art markets among other subjects. Tickets are free to all visitors with a ticket—so you’ve no excuse not to learn something new!
