London Art Fair 2020

Date of event: 22/01/20 - 26/01/20

London Art Fair provides a space to showcase the most exceptional modern and contemporary art of our time, to discover and to buy. The Fair is an established destination for both museum quality modern and contemporary work, nurturing collectors at all levels, from prints and editions to major works by internationally renowned artists.

To enable engagement with art, LAF continue to provide access to talks, tours, screenings and curated spaces, which include Photo50, their annual exhibition of contemporary photography; Art Projects, which features large-scale installations, solo shows and group displays; and (within Art Projects) Dialoguesa guest-curated section of Art Projects intended to encourage and foster relationships between home and abroad. And let’s not forget the Art Projects Screening Room, an accompanying programme of collaborative film and new media initiatives, and Platform, a new feature focusing on a single distinct theme every year. This January 2020, Platform will be presenting Threading Forms curated by Candida Stevens, bringing to the fore a selection of galleries capturing the breadth of different artists working in textiles and the growing appreciation of the medium as a beautiful and collectable art form.

London Art Fair is an unmissable opening to the international art calendar, with the next edition taking place from 22-26 January 2020 (Preview Evening 21 January).

Talk: What will the UK Contemporary Art Market look like in 2030?

Wednesday 22 January, 6.30pm – 7.30pm 

The Future of the Art Market Report surveys the significant changes that have occurred in the contemporary art market over the past 15 years. Commissioned and published by Creative United in November 2019 in partnership with Arteïa, Creative Scotland and DACS, the Report explores the dominant issues and trends that are likely to have an impact on the size and shape of the market in the decades to come. In this panel, we discuss: what are the forces and tensions shaping the art market ecosystem today; who is benefitting in the current art market; and should we still participate or seek new ways to operate?

With Lucy Rose Sollitt, writer, curator and author of the Future of the Art Market Report, Anders Petterson, Founder & MD of ArtTactic, Terry Smith, Director of Venice Agendas and artist Jade Montserrat. Chaired by Chief Executive of Creative United Mary-Alice Stack.

Many of our Own Art galleries will be at the fair – here is a list of where you can find them:
