British Art Fair
This bold and lively art fair is one of a kind. It is dedicated to modern British art and exhibits work that demonstrates the importance of the Young British Artists to the contemporary art scene. With 50 leading art dealers presenting drawings, paintings and sculptural pieces, the collectors and members of the public who attend British Art Fair are every bit as interesting as the work that’s on display. Special exhibitions run alongside the fair with well-known artists represented from the 20th and 21st Century. The fair was first established in 1988, and since 2018, it takes place in October in the Saatchi Gallery, off the fashionable Kings Road in London.
