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.

A Million Candles, Illuminating Queer Love and Life inspired by London Art Fair’s 2024 Museum Partnership with Charleston, the modernist home of painters Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, the 2024 Platform section of the Fair brought together art that shined a light on Queer love and life selected by guest curator Gemma Rolls-Bentley. In the early 20th century, the historic house and artist studio became a Queertopia for members of the Bloomsbury Group, including Vanessa’s sister Virginia Woolf. 

For its previous editions Platform presented Reframing the Muse in 2023, Music & Art in 2022, Threading Forms in 2020, and explored the expansive territory of Ceramics in 2019.
