Find A Bargain In Battersea, At Affordable Art Fair
Affordable Art Fair is back — displaying and selling exciting new artworks to Londoners without any of the stuffiness or pomp with which the trade is often associated.
That is because the entire premise of the Affordable Art Fair is to open up art to everyone. All artworks on show are available to buy and priced between £50-£5,000. With pieces from the likes of Damien Hirst, Anish Kapoor and Marc Quinn on offer (as well as a whole host of local and emerging artists), it’s a rare opportunity for art lovers to take the leap and purchase something really special at a price they wouldn't usually find.
But if you’re not up for buying, that’s fine too. Founded in 1999, the fair has the vision of "art for everyone" and non-collectors still have much to enjoy. Not only is there a beautiful range of art on display to admire — from the traditional to the more contemporary — there’s also the chance to get stuck in with a variety of curator talks, art tours, art history discussions, live performances and various workshops too (DIY carnival headdress session, anyone?). All are free with a ticket to the fair, more info here.
In the last 15 years, the fair has grown from featuring 90 to 1,000 galleries. There have been more than 100 fairs in 11 countries, and Affordable Art Fair has also contributed £665,000 to various charity beneficiaries since its inception. Impressive numbers. So join those already in the know and head along to enjoy unique art in an accessible, laid-back and activity-packed space.
Affordable Art Fair is at Battersea Evolution in Battersea Park, SW11 4NJ from 23-26 October 2014. Tickets cost between £8-£20 depending on the day, with children under 16 entering free.
