Fair Programme



Showcasing work by over 80 contemporary artists, specially selected by an expert-led selection committee, each edition of the fair provides visitors with the opportunity to discover and buy art directly from emerging artists - your chance to invest in the maker!

Visit our Exhibiting section to learn more about the benefits of applying to the fair.

Artist applications for our 2018 fair are now open.


Supporting our exhibiting artists, every edition of the fair features an internationally renowned Guest Artist, each launching their own limited edition works of art created exclusively for the fair.

Past Guest Artists include Tracey Emin, Ben Eine, Martin Parr, Gavin Turk and Polly Morgan. Our 2018 Guest Artist will be revealed shortly, so keep an eye out!



A dedicated section of the fair curated by a Guest Curator, engaging with emerging areas of art and showcasing pieces by fair artists that challange current artistic practice. Past exhibitions include Photo 21, displaying work by twenty-one of the best unrepresented photograhic artists from across the globe; the Jotta Showcase, examining the idea of artistic production; and '100 Mothers' curated by Harry Pye, a charity exhibition presenting portraits by 100 artists depicting their mothers.
