Launched in 2019 as a new guest curated feature to the Fair Programme, Platform focuses 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.
Browse below the themes which have been explored, questioned and celebrated thus far by London Art Fair.

For London Art Fair: Edit, curator Candida Stevens presented Folk Art, a view to our cultural heritage, our communities and our identity and how artists who are working in the Folk tradition have chosen to pass on this cultural heritage of knowledge and inspiration.
