Like art? Like fairs? Like London? If you answered yes to all three, then you obviously don’t live in London. If you answered yes to the first two then we’ve got the event for you!


From 17 - 21 January 2018, London Art Fair will return for its 30th anniversary edition. Launching the international art calendar, the Fair offers exceptional modern and contemporary art from leading galleries around the world. Alongside this, it continues to provide insight into the evolving international market through specially curated spaces Art Projects and Photo50, presenting innovative developments in contemporary art and photographic practice.


London Art Fair 2018 invites collectors and visitors to discover work by artists from the 20th century to today, ranging from Modern British masters to exciting new talent. In celebration of their landmark 30th year, London Art Fair will feature a unique exhibition in partnership with Art UK. Bringing together thirty artworks from the nation’s public art collections, Art of the Nation: Five Artists Choose will recognise the extraordinary diversity and importance of the UK’s publicly-owned art.


A huge 131 exhibitors will participate in this year’s Fair, attracting galleries from across five continents to the capital. Returning for this year is Maus Contemporary (USA), who will exhibit within the main Fair having debuted in last year’s Art Projects. Other highlight stands include a collaboration between Skipwiths (UK) and Berwald London (UK), contrasting the work of contemporary Asian artists with a collection of Chinese ceramics carefully built over thirty years. Seminal artists including Andy Warhol, Joan Miro, Pablo Picasso, Frank Auerbach, Banksy and Damien Hirst will also be featured.


And if, like us you noticed how there isn’t any women in that list don’t fear because, in a first for London Art Fair, Dialogues will feature exclusively female or female-identifying artists whose work addresses gender and cultural identity.
