Main Fair

This is where to head if you’re after a modern masterpiece by the likes of Joan Miró, Alan Davie or Atsuko Tanaka from established galleries such as Austin/Desmond and Art First. Also look out for the fresh-faced fare on offer at younger spaces such as Charlie Smith.

The Hepworth Wakefield

Every year, the fair works with a museum partner. This year Yorkshire’s stunning Hepworth Wakefield is bringing major works by big-league Brit modernists Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore.

The Catlin Guide
Launching at the fair, the latest Catlin Guide (£12.99) gives you the lowdown on 40 of the most exciting recent art graduates and postgraduates. Work by the featured artists will be on show.

This annual art fair, which features UK and International galleries selling work from the early twentieth century to the present day, can now boast its first museum partnership with The Hepworth Wakefield. ‘Barbara Hepworth and the Development of British Modernism' will be displayed at this year's fair in a new pavilion, and is a perfect compliment to an event that continues to attract a broader and more contemporary mix of exhibitors.

Expanding on the success of the Art Projects section and marking its tenth year is 'Dialogues', a collaborative initiative bringing together invited galleries and their emerging artists.

Rounding off the fair is Photo50, a showcase curated by London’s Edel Assanti gallery which features some of today’s most exiting photographic practices.
