Affordable Art Fair Melbourne

Affordable Art Fair is an international contemporary art fair, founded in 1999 by collector Will Ramsay. It was first held in London with one goal only: to make art accessible to all. 20 years later, the fair has now conquered the world, with several editions in almost all continents. In September 2019, the first Australian edition of the fair has been held in the Royal Exhibition Building of Melbourne. Both Australian and international galleries are showcased during this 4-day fair. Like its sisters shows, Affordable Art Fair Melbourne is a place to discover future stars with a focus on emerging and mid-career artists.
