London Art Fair 2017

London Art Fair is the UK’s premier Modern British and contemporary art fair. Annually launching the art world year, the fair returns to Islington’s Business Design Centre from 18-22 January 2017 for its 29th edition.

The Fair brings together over 100 carefully selected galleries from the UK and overseas, presenting museum quality Modern British art alongside international contemporary work from today’s leading artists. Alongside the main Fair, you’ll also find two curated sections focusing on emerging artists and contemporary photography; Art Projects, including ‘Dialogues’ curated by Miguel Amado, and Photo50, curated by Christiane Monarchi.

You will find Own Art Plus at Stand M3 – come and say hello! We will be providing interest-free loans for artworks priced between £2,500 and £25,000.
