Picture preview: London Art Fair
The UK's largest art fair for Modern British and contemporary art begins today in London.
The London Art Fair features over 100 galleries displaying work from some of the great names of the twentieth century alongside exceptional recent work, from leading figures to emerging talent.
On top of the main fair, which includes work from over 1,000 artists, this year sees the return of the Art Projects section, which features solo shows, curated group displays, large-scale installations, performance events and a programme of experimental film and video, all by contemporary artists from across the world.
Canadian curatorial initiative Beers.Lambert Contemporary Art makes its Art Projects debut at this year's fair with its collection entitled Vestiges.
With pieces by Vasilis Asimakopolous, Tom Lovelace, Andrew Salgado and Tine Semb, Vestiges is described by Beers.Lambert as exploring "ideas of presence/absence, reality, and reflexivity not only through content, but also predominately through an artistic practice that refers to, and greatly informs the artists' own work".
The London Art Fair runs from Wednesday 18 January until Sunday 22 January at the Business Design Centre, Islington. For more information visit www.londonartfair.co.uk
