First UK art fair dedicated to modern and contemporary drawing
Draw Art Fair London is the first fair in the UK dedicated to modern and contemporary drawing. It aims to present all facets of drawing as a fundamental practice and to create a platform where rare works by modern masters and recent works from the 21st century stand side by side. It provides an unrivalled opportunity for visitors to discover the new, and to rediscover established artists.
Draw Art Fair London launched in London – VIP/Preview 15-16 May – and is open to the public 17-19 May. It is taking place over three floors at the Saatchi Gallery, Chelsea. Draw Art Fair London includes more than sixty galleries and exhibitors, who have been invited to curate individual exhibitions of artists’ drawings, or groups of drawings, in a museum-style context.
Exhibitors can juxtapose drawings with related paintings, sculptures, photos or videos, in a ratio of approximately 70% to 30%, using drawing as the core concept and placing it at the heart of a broader perspective on artistic creation and production.
Saatchi Gallery in the heart of Chelsea is a landmark building, formerly the Duke of York's Headquarters, and is ideally located in central London near Sloane Square on King's Road, Chelsea.
