Art Projects 2017. Victoria Lucas, Chiara Williams Contemporary


We are now inviting applications from international contemporary galleries wishing to participate in the 14th edition of Art Projects at London Art Fair 2018.

Dedicated to cultivating a community of emerging international galleries and artists, Art Projects has established itself as one of the most exciting sections of London Art Fair, continuing to garner widespread critical acclaim and a distinct audience.

A curated showcase of the freshest contemporary art from across the globe, Art Projects features large-scale installations, solo shows and thematic group displays; alongside an accompanying performance programme, and collaborative film and new media initiatives hosted in the Art Projects Screening Room.

The Fair’s enriched VIP Programme allows younger galleries to raise their profiles, reach new audiences for their artists and build their collector base, through targeted Patrons’ receptions and tours at the Fair.

The section also includes ‘Dialogues’ – a guest curated initiative which was launched in 2014, whereby invited UK and international galleries feature collaborative presentations.
