Art London 04.-08.10.07
Art London is returning for its ninth year to a beautiful, airy marquee in Chelsea.
This year's fair welcomes 75 galleries from across the UK and Europe, and from as far afield as Argentina, South Africa, Australia and Hong Kong. These carefully selected exhibitors are showcasing their very best paintings, drawings, prints, photography, sculpture, glass and ceramics. In a relaxed setting that combines approachability with glamour and connoisseurship, you can find works by young unknowns as well as by household names.
Amongst the many established British artists represented at Art London are Alan Davie, Lynn Chadwick, Ivon Hitchens, Henry Moore, Ben Nicholson, Patrick Heron and Vanessa Bell. International greats include Pablo Picasso, Kurt Schwitters, Georg Baselitz, Eduard Vuillard and Raoul Dufy.
In 2006, Art London hosted its inaugural Special Exhibition: a non-selling, museum style show with an educational mission. Our second such exhibition is entitled Enabling the Future: Drawings, Maquettes and Sculptures from the Cass Sculpture Foundation. The collection has been on loan to several overseas museums, including the Guggenheim in Venice. However, this is the first time it is being exhibited- away from its permanent home at Goodwood- in a public space in the UK, a tremendous honour for Art London.
The Cass Sculpture Foundation is also contributing several major pieces to the fair's outdoor Sculpture Garden, a curated display of fourteen monumental works positioned against the idyllic backdrop of the Royal Hospital's grounds.
