Highlights of the London Art Fair 2015
Between the 21st and 25th of January, art lovers flocked to the 27th edition of the London Art Fair. Situated at the Business Design Centre in Islington, the UK’s premier fair for modern and contemporary British art housed 128 exhibitors from across the world, and played host to an exciting programme of exhibitions, films, talks and performances.
As well as the inaugural Art Projects Artist Award, highlights this year included The Art Projects Film Programme, which took place in a purpose-built screening room curated by art journalist Pryle Behrman. The Art Projects also showcased a refreshing selection of contemporary and up-and-coming artists and installations.
This year the fair provided a space entirely dedicated to photography. For their award-winning annual ‘Masters of Photography’ project, luxury spirit The Macallan partnered with famed photographer Mario Testino. There was even a 20-minute whisky tasting master class for visitors to enjoy.
Other special events included a novel reading from Maeve Rendle exploring the curious relationship between freedom of thought and literal inspiration, and a Master Class in the Art of Interiors with Jade Thomson, Feature Editor at LuxDeco.
