Article by Beatrix Joyce in Berlin // Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2017

This month, London Art Fair will return to London’s Business Design Centre for its 29th edition. This year’s fair showcases a broad range of international contemporary art and photography from over 125 galleries and includes an extensive programme of artist talks, guided tours and panel discussions.

London Art Fair’s 2017 museum partner, The Lightbox Woking, will present an exhibition of modern British art from The Ingram Collection. ‘Ten Years: A Century of Art’ includes key works by twentieth century artists such as Henri Gaudier- Brzeska, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Ben Nicholson and Eric Ravilious. Curated by Peter Hall, curator of The Lightbox, and Jo Baring, curator of The Ingram Collection, this exhibition of paintings, drawings and sculpture tells the story of a century of British art rich in innovation and discovery.

Senior curator at Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, Miguel Amado, has been appointed guest curator for Art Projects‘ ‘Dialogues’. Art Projects is a platform dedicated to fostering a community of emerging international galleries. ‘Dialogues’ will feature collaborative presentations between invited UK and international gallery partners.

Other highlights include the exhibition ‘Gravitas’ curated by Christiane Monarchi. As part of London Art Fair’s annual Photo50 series, the exhibition provides a critical showcase of distinctions within current photographic practice. Stemming from Latin and inspired by its meaning in ancient Roman society, ‘Gravitas’ will highlight the work of photographers who explore adolescence and the pressures of society that children face today.
