London Art FairNow in its 29th 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 of London's best galleries to browse through. There are two shows within the show: 'Art Projects', showcasing contemporary art from across the globe; and 'Photo50', a curated exhibition of 50 contemporary photographs. Talks by industry leaders like writer and broadcaster Michael Bird are supplemented by tours hosted by Sotheby's and it's open late on Thursday - stop by after work for an insightful programme of talks, tours and performance.
