In London next weekend? So are 134 international galleries from 41 countries for the third annual Art15. A fabulous mix of arts from around the world. Here are some of the things we are looking forward to seeing.

This year the fair incorporates a greater presence of Modern art, particularly Italian Modernism, it also brings in more galleries from the growing Asian market, and will be giving more space to young galleries through its Emerge and London First section.


Louise Alexander Gallery

Pleasure for the eyes, and for the taste buds, thanks to Food 4 Art. Any visitors to the Fair can make a reservation in the restaurant and choose from specially designed menus.

There’s going to be a lot of interesting things going on. Talks like “At Some Point, Freedom of Expression Defines Art”, with speakers such as Mimsy, an anonymous artist who has to wear a mask to protect her identity. There is also a major curatorial initiative called “Freedom Audit” that explores the different ways that artists from around the world are engaging with the pertinent issue of freedom, in the context of recent world events.
