The London Art Fair (21-24 January), the UK’s premier fair for modern British and contemporary art, returns to the Business Design Centre in Islington for its’ 2016 event.
The Fair will showcase museum quality modern British art alongside contemporary work from today’s leading artists, covering the period from the early 20th century to the present day.
London Art Fair has announced a series of collaborations between emerging UK and international galleries for ‘Dialogues’, a section of Art Projects guest curated by Natasha Hoare, which aims to encourage and foster relationships between galleries on a global scale.
The five 2016 ‘Dialogues’ collaborations are:
Copperfield (London) / NEST (The Hague)
Division of Labour (Worcester) / NOME (Berlin)
l’étrangère (London) / Base-Alpha Gallery (Antwerp)
The RYDER (London)/ All Together Now (Rotterdam)
TJ Boulting (London) / Leslie (Berlin)
Natasha Hoare comments: “Dialogues is a project that enables collaborative presentations by commercial galleries in the setting of London Art Fair. Pairing international spaces with UK based galleries, we hope to exploit the trappings of working across geographical divides, with all the attendant creative leaps and productive mistranslations. British artists will be brought together across stands in both assonance and juxtaposition, shown alongside practitioners based in The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and further afield to expand existing networks of artistic exchange and influence, and to forge new ones.”
The Fair programme includes talks, tours and performances along with a photography focus day on Wednesday 20 January and a Thursday Late sponsored by Peroni Nastro Azzurro, where Fair visitors can enjoy complimentary drinks.
The London Art Fair is always worth a visit. Even if you are not buying, there are plenty of lovely Modern and Contemporary works to peruse.
