London Art FairNow in its 28th year, the London Art Fair at the Business Design Centre shows no signs of losing its cutting edge. Whether you're buying or just looking you'll have over a hundred of London's best galleries to look through. There are two shows within the show: 'Art Projects', showcasing contemporary art from across the globe; and 'Photo50', a curated exhibition of 50 contemporary photographs. The fair is the perfect platform for art dealers and publishers to publicise their latest news. One such example is The XL Catlin Art Guide which highlights thirty new graduate artists selected from UK art schools by curator Justin Hammond, their 2016 edition is launched alongside an exhibition of work by selected artists.
