Frieze Week 2

Other Art Fairs on during Frieze Week

No one can say that London’s art scene isn’t buzzing during Frieze Week and they are by no means the only fairs on.

 

The Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane, London E1 plays host to three:

While the only UK art fair that exclusively specialises in contemporary prints, photographs, digital art, artists’ books and 3-D printing is the Multiplied Art Fair (17th-20th October) which is hosted by Christie’s South Kensington. Its forty participating galleries provide an eclectic mix of established artists as well as the emerging talent from institutions like the Slade School of Fine Art and the Royal College of Art.

 Following the success of last years’s 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair this year’s (16th-19th October) is even larger and promises some of the best in the emerging Contemporary African art market.  Definitely worth a visit to Somerset House.
