In a foreword to the supplement, published this week and distributed free to ATG subscribers, the mayor writes that the art and antiques market’s summer calendar is proof that “London is open to business,” despite the UK voting to leave the EU.

Declaring himself proud to be mayor of “one of the world’s great art and antiques capitals,” Khan says the 2017 London Summer Capital of Art supplement showcases London’s "great cultural diversity and opportunity, with doors opening across the city to welcome people from every nation”.
