Attend London's largest and most exciting new art fair launch in a decade.
Art13 London, sponsored by Citi Private Bank, takes place at Olympia Grand Hall from 1 to 3 March with 129 galleries from 30 countries participating in the inaugural edition. The concept for the Fair is to create Europe’s first truly global art fair and it breaks new ground by having roughly half of the participating artists with a non-Western background exhibiting side-by-side with their Western peers. Artists hail from countries that range from China to Brazil, from cities that span New York to Jeddah. 70% of the participating galleries are new to London and the fair will be a place for discovery by curators, critics and collectors.
The Fair is divided into three sections—the main section and two sections devoted to emerging practice: Young Galleries (for galleries less than six years old) and London First (for young galleries who have never shown in London before). The main section ranges across the modern and the contemporary, providing an overview of globalized art production since the middle of the last century.
