Over the last thirty years, London Art Fair has given access to exceptional modern and contemporary art, as well as expert insight into the changing market.  Presenting leading British and international galleries alongside curated spaces Art Projects and Photo50, the Fair invites collectors and visitors to discover works by renowned artists from the 20th Century to today. London Art Fair is an unmissable opening to the international art calendar.

Art Projects is a curated showcase of the freshest contemporary art from across the world with galleries from outside the UK making up two-thirds of exhibitors. The section has established itself as an important international platform for new galleries to showcase the most stimulating contemporary practice, and continues to garner widespread critical acclaim. Art Projects is situated alongside the main Fair on Gallery Level 1.

A major feature of Art Projects is ‘Dialogues’, presenting five collaborations between galleries intended to encourage new forms of presentation, this year’s collaborations were selected by Misal Adnan Yildiz who has devoted the presentation to the female psyche; an examination of the nature and knowledge of women.

Joanna Bryant and Julian Page are co-curating one of these dialogue stands and are paired with a New Zealand gallery, Starkwhite, looking at an epistemological question: form is female, and focusing on spatial relationships between internal tangents, geometry, frameworks pathways and codes from female points of abstract thinking.  With works from Silvia Lerin, Joella Wheatley, Matilde Damele and Ruth Solomons (Bryant and Page) and a solo presentation from Maori photographer Fiona Pardington (Starkwhite).
