Art Projects is a curated showcase of the freshest contemporary art from across the world and with galleries from outside the UK making up two thirds of exhibitors.
The 13th edition was the most international to date with represented artists coming from a diverse selection of countries including Greece, Germany, Japan, France, South Korea and Zimbabwe. Highlights included large-scale installations, solo shows and thematic group displays; alongside an accompanying programme of collaborative film and new media initiatives.
The section has established itself as an important international platform for new galleries to showcase the most stimulating contemporary practice, and continues to garner widespread critical acclaim.
Art Projects is situated alongside the main Fair on Gallery Level 1.

A major feature of Art Projects is ‘Dialogues’; five collaborations between galleries intended to encourage new forms of presentation and foster relationships on a global scale.
Now in its fourth year, the 2017 edition was curated by Miguel Amado, Senior Curator at Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, UK.
The featured artists address the issues of our times, looking at history, race and collectivity alongside explorations of imaginaries, representation and subjectivity.
The radical development fostered by net art was the possibility that artists who had never met to nonetheless be inspired by, use and remix each other’s work. Hosted in the Art Projects Screening Room and curated by Pryle Behrman ‘Stranger Collaborations’ featured an exhibition of artworks that in some way wouldn’t have been possible without the collaborations formed via the internet, showing how strangers can, sometimes even unknowingly, create an artistic partnership online.
