Viewing London Art Fair

If you’re looking to spruce up your space this spring, head down to London Art Fair, where you’ll find over 100 galleries showcasing modern and contemporary art. Works by such celebrated names as Henry Moore, David Hockney and Bridget Riley are shown alongside pieces by emerging artists including RCA graduate Theodore Ereira-Guyer and multi-media artist Abraham Kritzman.

When it comes to modern art, make a beeline for Gilden’s Fine Art Gallery and Thomas Spencer Fine Art, where you’ll find a previously unseen work by John Nash and a large 1970s gouache by Mary Fedden. Contemporary art lovers should look to Stoney Road Press and Jealous Gallery, which presents a new print edition by David Shrigley. For textiles and sculpture, head to Thompson’s Gallery and James Hyman Gallery, which is bringing a unique hand-woven tapestry by RB Kitaj.

Not to be missed is this year’s themed section, which explores the intersection of visual art and music. Curated by Candida Stevens, it features everything from abstract works referencing the riff of jazz music with off-key colour to figurative compositions, woodcuts and porcelain sculpture. Also worthy of note is the non-selling exhibition, Myth-Making and Self-Fashioning: Women Artists from the New Hall Art Collection, which features over 20 women artists including Maggi Hambling, Eileen Cooper and Miriam Schapiro.

But be sure you save some time for Photo50, the fair’s annual showcase of contemporary photography; and Art Projects, the fair’s section dedicated to the freshest contemporary talent from around the world. It’s worth checking online for more information about the accompanying talks programme too.
