London Art FairNow in its 32nd year, the London Art Fair at the Business Design Centre shows no signs of losing its cutting edge. Whether you're buying or just looking you'll have over a hundred galleries from London and beyond to browse through. Well known artists like Marc Chagall, Frank Auerbach and Grayson Perry are featured while West Dean Tapestry Studio hosts live 'textile art in the making'. Sitting alongside the main fair, Art Projects offers a platform for the next generation of artists and gallerists, guest-curated Dialogues takes the theme of 'Talkative Pictures' and Photo50 explores the pool of talented living female photographers over the age of 50. This year Southampton City Art Gallery is the fair's chosen museum partner, highlighting the gallery's modern British and contemporary art collection.
