Art15 London

  • art15 art fair london
May 16, 2015

The Art15 art fair London is about to start soon! One of the fastest-growing fairs in the world will be held in a city that is one of the major contemporary art hubs in the world (take a look at our article about 10 galleries in London you have to visit). Logically, Art15 art fair London 2015 will feature a large number of renowned modern and contemporary galleries presenting quite extraordinary artists. This year is the third edition of the Art London, and there is an increased emphasis on curatorial rigor, with a reduced number of participants presenting more focused installations. The Art15 art fair London 2015 sees the highest number of solo artist presentations to date with new exhibitors. Over one half of the galleries attending Art15 have spaces outside of Europe, with several spanning multiple cities. There is a greater presence of Modern art, particularly Italian Modernism as seen in a presentation from new exhibitor, Switzerland’s Cortesi Gallery. Contemporary photography remains a core component for Art15 art fair London.

Art15 art fair London is sponsored by Citi Private Bank. This year, 134 international galleries from 41 countries will present their artists and artworks. It is interesting that over one third of the participating galleries come from Asia. The Fair continues to explore new scenes within the ever-burgeoning Asian market. In response to an increased presence from Taiwanese collectors, this year nine galleries from Taiwan are participating including Lin & Lin Gallery, AKI Gallery and Yiri Arts. The main program is divided into: London First (that provides unprecedented access to galleries making their debut in London); Galleries (the main section); Emerge (which encompasses the curatorial notion of emerging – from markets to galleries to artists); and Non-for-Profit (offers alternative approaches from the perspective of internationally renowned public art spaces based in London, Birmingham, Oxford and Dundee, as well as Romania, Kazakhstan, Nigeria and the UAE). Apart from the main program, Art15 art fair London has a quite rich supporting program as well.
