Celebrating 30 Years
London Art Fair was established in January 1989 as an initiative of Islington’s Business Design Centre, where the Fair has been held ever since. Initially known as Art ‘89, the inaugural edition attracted 36 galleries and a few thousand visitors.
Over the past three decades, London Art Fair has continued to evolve to reflect the changes in contemporary practice and collecting within the art world, as presented in the critically acclaimed Art Projects and Photo50.
