London Art Fair returns from 17th-21st January 2024, highlighting a selection of the best galleries from the UK and beyond. The Fair will offer both seasoned and aspiring collectors a diverse presentation of modern and contemporary art, alongside curated displays, and an inspiring programme of talks, tours and performances.

In addition, London Art Fair continues to champion and support regional museums through its annual Museum Partnership, which this year invites Charleston, once home to the 20th century’s most pioneering artists, writers and thinkers, to showcase their unique collection of art, textiles and ceramics at the Fair.

This year will see the participation of over 120 galleries from around the world, including Japan, Portugal and Turkey, with new exhibitors Bluerider Art, Stowe Arthouse Gallery, Liss Llewellyn and Common Sense Gallery; alongside returning names such as Gilden’s Art Gallery, Jill George Gallery and Jonathan Clarke. The Fair will feature work by some of the world’s most renowned artists working across a variety of media, including sculpture, prints, paintings, photography and ceramics, from artists including Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol, Bridget Riley and David Hockney.

London Art Fair’s specialism in Modern art continues to be strongly represented through the participation of some of the UK’s leading galleries in the field. Alan Wheatley Art will be showcasing Modern British paintings and sculpture from the latter half of the twentieth century with a particular emphasis on Post-War British art, featuring never-before-seen paintings by Alan Davie to mark the tenth anniversary of the artist’s passing. Meanwhile, Christopher Kingzett Fine Art will focus on British art of the 1950s and 60s and will exhibit a bronze sculpture of a bird by Dame Elisabeth Frink among other pieces by the artist.

Twelve international galleries will be exhibiting at London Art Fair 2024. Common Sense Gallery’s presentation will bring together four female multimedia artists, including Caribbean artist Pauline Marcelle and London based artist Lauren Baker, whose work ranges from figurative, to still lives, to abstract oil on canvas, to totem sculptures. Meanwhile, Gallery B·R’s presentation will promote the artistic production of Spanish
artists, featuring work by Aythamy Armas and Jordi Alcaraz.

London Art Fair reflects contemporary practice and collecting trends within the art world through its critically-acclaimed sections curated in collaboration with leading experts.

Museum Partnership
London Art Fair has partnered with Charleston for its annual Museum Partnership. Situated in the South Downs National Park, Charleston was the modernist home and studio of painters Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, and the regular meeting place of some of the 20th century’s most radical artists, writers and thinkers, known collectively as the Bloomsbury Group. It is where they came together to imagine society differently and has always been a place where art and experimental thinking are at the centre of everyday life.

At the Fair, Charleston will present select works by Bloomsbury group artists, including Vanessa Bell’s portrait of Virginia Woolf, Duncan Grant’s fireplace screen and painting of the farmhouses at Charleston, as well as Omega ceramics from a private collection.

Photo50 is the Fair’s critical forum for examining distinctive elements of current photographic practice. For 2024, Photo50 will be curated by Revolv Collective presenting works by artists such as Joshua Bilton and Hannah Fletcher exploring the subject of labour and its diverse representation within the context of the land, looking at practices expanding the possibilities of photography.

Prints and Editions section
For the first time at this year’s edition of London Art Fair, the Fair is introducing a new Prints and Editions section, featuring galleries whose displays will focus on limited editions. The section is aimed at nurturing collectors who will want to grow their collections in years to come and will feature prints from both emerging and household names in printmaking. Featured galleries include Enitharmon Editions, the exclusive publisher of Caroline Walker’s lithographs, which focus on the everyday lives of women. Alongside her new suite of four lithographs will be featured artists’ books, which are in the tradition of the livre d’artiste, containing loose-leaf signed limited edition prints, etchings and photogravures by artists such as Sonia Boyce, Anthony Gormley and David Hockney. The section will be accompanied by a curated series of
events including printmaking workshops and ‘Meet the Artist’ events.
