The 26th London Art Fair

The London Art Fair launched its 26th edition at Islington’s Business Design Centre last week, showcasing over 100 carefully selected galleries from the UK and overseas.

I visited on Thursday, which to my pleasant surprise happened to be the ‘Thursday Late in Association with Peroni Nastro Azzuro’. Having missed the preview on Tuesday I still got to experience a late night viewing with the buzz of an opening night; my favourite part of any art fair… and the free beer is always a plus, thanks Peroni!

Talks and tours continued throughout the night offering regular ticket holders the chance to gain further insight into the exhibiting galleries and artists.

What I love about the London Art Fair, and most of London’s major fairs, is the amazing mix of styles from hugely established artists like Francis Bacon and Damien Hirst (Hirst pictured below left) to emerging student designers like Cassandra Yap (pictured below right).

The fair also featured Art Projects, a curated showcase of fresh contemporary art from across the globe including large scale installation, solo shows and group displays as well as an extensive Film Programme.

The London Art Fair ended on Sunday but you can see the full list of participating galleries and more about on-going projects at the official London Art Fair website.
