Last month, the Business Design Centre in Islington, London, hosted the 22nd London Art Fair, the largest British and contemporary art showcase in the UK. From 13th to 17th January, the Fair brought together over a hundred leading British galleries, a selection of international projects and a showcase of contemporary photography. It included the highest-quality paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photographs, video and editioned prints and multiples.
A great success, this edition attracted over 20,000 visitors, including major collectors and directors from public galleries and institutions. Major sales included a large Alan Davie painting from the early Sixties at £120,000, the Blue Dress (oil on canvas) by Harold Gilman for £95,000, as well as works by Alex Pearl and Thomas Allen.
This edition also presented a large number of installations, including Sue Morgan’s fictional voyage inside the human mind with maps, collages and etchings or Gabrielle Le Bayon’s live feed interactive projection piece.
The next edition of London Art Fair will take place 19th-23rd January 2011, so put the dates in your diary now!
