Founded by media entrepreneur Chris Ingram in 2002, The Ingram Collection is widely acknowledged as one of Europe’s most significant collections of Modern British art and is further distinguished by its loan to The Lightbox for public display in a series of rotating exhibitions since 2007. Works from the collection are also regularly loaned to international and national exhibitions. Ten Years: A Century of Art will include key works by twentieth century artists such as Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Ben Nicholson and Eric Ravilious. Curated by Peter Hall, Curator of The Lightbox, and Jo Baring, Curator of The Ingram Collection, this exhibition of paintings, drawings and sculpture will demonstrate the breadth, depth and quality of The Ingram Collection, and tell the story of a century of British Art rich in innovation and discovery. Art Projects: ‘Dialogues’ curated by Miguel Amado Miguel Amado_portrait_Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art Art Projects is an important international platform for galleries to showcase the most stimulating contemporary practice. Dedicated to fostering a community of emerging international galleries, Art Projects ‘Dialogues’ is a unique and much anticipated section of the Fair which features collaborative presentations between invited UK and international gallery partners. ‘Dialogues’ will be curated in 2017 by Miguel Amado, Senior Curator at Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art. Amado brings a wealth of international experience to the role, including his work as curator for Joana Vasconcelos’ Portuguese Pavilion at the 2013 Venice Biennale and appointments at institutions such as Tate St Ives, the PLMJ Foundation in Lisbon, and the Centro de Artes Visuais in Coimbra, Portugal. Other projects include apexart in New York, Frieze Projects at Frieze London and No Soul for Sale: A Festival of Independents at the X Initiative in New York and Tate Modern in London. Photo50 curated by Christiane Monarchi cmonarchi approved pic Photo50 is an annual guest-curated exhibition at the Fair which provides a critical showcase of some of the most interesting and distinctive elements of current photographic practice. Christiane Monarchi, Editor of Photomonitor, has been appointed as guest curator for the 2017 edition with a group exhibition of lens-based works entitled ‘Gravitas’. In ancient Roman society, presence of gravitas signalled the transition of the Roman youth from the ranks of boyhood to become a respected member of society. At a time when childhood itself is coming under increasing pressure from society, in both real and virtual arenas, Monarchi’s Photo50 exhibition will highlight the work of photographers who explore this path through adolescence today. London Art Fair tickets are now on sale and start at £11.50 for a Thursday Late Ticket and £15 for a Day Ticket (plus £1.50 booking fee) in advance. Day Tickets on the door are £22.
