Shifting Focus: the increasing interest in photography for young collectors’ in association with Contemporary Key

A panel discussion chaired by Contemporary Key, exploring the shift in how young collectors are looking to purchase photographs and develop their collections. A panel of young artists, gallery directors and experts will explore the art market network and look at how photography is an approachable and popular genre. 


We Are Electrified: Creating, commissioning, exhibiting and collecting art in the digital age

This panel discusses an electrifying cluster of controversies: the subversive intentions and emancipatory motivations of many media artists; the needs and concerns of public art collectors and conservators; the opportunities for private collectors and the interests of high art market speculation. The discussion will be chaired by Ruth Catlow, co-director of Furtherfield.

Emerging markets highlights tour led by Sotheby's Institute of Art

This tour begins from the Fair Guide sales point on the Ground Floor.





6.30pm and 8pm
William Mackrell, 'North South'

Presented as a vocal exchange of the words 'North' and 'South', this work considers differences of habit, dress and culture between the Northerners and Southerners across the globe, and the competitive instincts deriving from this.

William Mackrell is represented by Andipa Gallery, stand 48.

This performance takes place above Art Projects on Gallery Level 2.


Maeve Rendle, 'on summary in freedom'

In this work, Rendle considers the idea of thinking freely, and explores the point at which imaginative, free thinking is lost as literal interpretation takes over. Using a novel to explore ways in which reading and writing are simultaneously the tools and trappings of knowledge and creativity, she equates the mental space one occupies when reading, with the physical space one seeks out in a desire to think freely. This space becomes the freedom which enables inspiration. The critical question she asks is: how do we free ourselves in reality without losing our freedom in thought?

Maeve Rendle is represented by The International 3, stand P18a, Art Projects.

This performance takes place in the Talks & Discussions Theatre, Gallery Level 2, above Art Projects. 





Film Programme

Curated by Pryle Behrman, the Art Projects Film Programme runs throughout the Fair in a purpose-built screening room within Art Projects.

For 2015, we welcome LIMA, Amsterdam, as a partner of the Programme. LIMA will present a selection of recent works from its collection revolving around the imagery of cinema and its relationship to media art.

Special screenings will take place during Thursday Late. Details will be announced in December.
