5 Art Fairs You Can Enjoy Next Week

October 11, 2015

It's all about art fairs next week! Between October 12th and October 18th several art fairs will be held in the capital of the United Kingdom, which will become the center of the art world - at least for a week. We have chosen five art fairs that you really should enjoy, if you decide to take that necessary step and visit them. After all, during all that long summer, this was the moment we have been all eagerly waiting for: autumn art fairs and auctions! Auctions are not doing that well, but art fairs should really be exciting and inspiring - be sure not to miss them!

First, at The Regent’s Park on Chester Road, Frieze Masters London 2015 will start on October 13th, and it will be followed by Frieze Art Fair London, that will be held at the same place, but it will start one day later, on October 14th. Then, on October 15th, three more art fairs will open: The Other Art Fair at the Old Truman Brewery on Hanbury Street, 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair at Somerset House, Strand, and Moniker Art Fair that will return to London’s iconic Old Truman Brewery, as well. All these art fairs will be open until October 18th, except for Frieze Art Fair London that will close on October 17th. Of course, we will follow all these art fairs, so stay tuned!

Frieze Masters 2015

...Founded in 2012, Frieze Masters art fair will return to the Regent’s Park in London for its fourth edition.

...Frieze Masters will be the great meeting spot for classical and contemporary lovers alike, allowing them to experience the historic artworks in the modern context.

Frieze London 2015

...One of the world’s biggest art fairs, Frieze London, comes back for the 13th time to occupy the spaces of The Regent’s Park in the UK capital. Under the guidance of three prominent curators, the event offers a unique perspective on contemporary art and a traditionally rich cultural program, including the acclaimed Projects, Talks and Artist Award. Frieze London was established in 2003, and in 2012, it established two more art fairs, the one taking place in New York and Frieze Masters, which coincides with Frieze London and is dedicated to art from ancient to modern. This year, a total of 164 galleries from 27 countries will be divided into three different sections at Frieze, presenting the works of today’s most important artists...

The Other Art Fair 2015

...The Other Art Fair is returning to London’s Old Truman Brewery hub for its 10th edition. Established in 2011, The Other Art Fair became one of the best platforms for the emerging talents and independent artists. Specific for its casual atmosphere and direct contact between the artists and the visitors, this art fair provides an interesting alternative to the coinciding, gallery-run Frieze. With artworks starting at £50, The Other Art Fair will be a great opportunity for the young collectors and first-time buyers to obtain their first pieces and for the seasoned collectors to expand their collections with some fresh and original works...

1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair

...The art fair that celebrates African art is returning to London, for its third edition, and the art fair will present its most substantial showcase yet. Once again, it will take place at historic setting of Somerset House, and will feature 38 exhibitors representing more than 150 contemporary artists from Africa and the African diaspora...

...This Europe’s leading Contemporary African Art Fair will be a great opportunity to discover and appreciate contemporary African art in mediums including painting, sculpture, photography and installation with a cross-section of works from across the continent. So many great artists are participating. Highlights of artists (and their galleries) include: Sammy Baloji (Axis Gallery), who will design an in-situ installation for the gallery at the fair; Athi-Patra Ruga (In Situ / Fabienne Leclerc); Edson Chagas (APALAZZOGALLERY), who is the winner of the Golden Lion with the Angolan Pavillion at the 55th Venice Biennale and soon to exhibit at MoMa; Otobong Nkanga (In Situ / Fabienne Leclerc)...

Moniker Art Fair 2015

...Moniker Art Fair is returning to east London’s iconic Old Truman Brewery for its sixth year, having established itself as London’s premiere event for contemporary art rooted in urban culture. Apart from being an art fair that should definitely be visited this fall, what is so particular about Moniker art fair 2015 is that the fair will accept bitcoins as a form of payment, becoming the first ever major fair to do so. This move confirms Moniker’s reputation in the modern art market as a progressive fair that seeks to inspire social change. Moniker art fair 2015 will showcase approximately 20 national and international contemporary art galleries...
