As its names implies, British Art Fair is a bold and lively art fair dedicated to modern British art. Indeed, it exhibits work that demonstrates the importance of the young British artists to the contemporary art scene. 50 leading art dealers presenting drawings, paintings and sculptural pieces. Thus, collectors and members of the public are every bit as interesting as the work that’s on display. Moreover, special exhibitions run alongside the fair with well-known artists represented from the 20th and 21st century. British Art Fair was first established in 1988, and since 2018, it takes place in October in the Saatchi Gallery. This iconic venue helds as well each May DRAW Art Fair, owned by the same group.
