About Platform

Platform  launched in 2019, as a new feature of London Art Fair focusing on a single distinct theme every year, be it an artistic medium, movement or a geographical or cultural exploration. The section allows invited galleries to present a combination of well-known, overlooked and emerging artists that align to the theme.
