London Art FairNow in its 27th year, the London Art Fair at the Business Design Centre shows no signs of losing its cutting edge. There are two shows within the show: 'Art Projects' where Anna Colin curates 'Dialogues', showcasing contemporary art from across the globe; and 'Photo50', where Sheyi Bankale curates 50 contemporary photographs. At the front is 'The Figure in Modern British Art', an exhibition of paintings and drawings by some of the leading British figurative painters of the 20th century including Walter Sickert, David Bomberg, Lucian Freud, William Coldstream and Frank Auerbach, presented by Simon Martin, Artistic Director of Pallant House Gallery.
