Covering art from the 20th century to now, the focus of this annual event falls on its more contemporary offerings.
Galleries such as Rebecca Hossack and Contemporary Collective are among those featuring leading emerging artists, while CFPR Editions this year highlights the art of robots programmed by roboticist and artist Paul O’Dowd. It also features the evolving market with curated spaces Art Projects and Photo50, highlighting developments in contemporary art and photography.
However, last century’s masters are also much in evidence. The Redfern Gallery showcases St Ives School artist Paul Feiler, while Waterhouse & Dodd features a selection of works by David Bomberg. Pieces by Andy Warhol, Joan Miró and Pablo Picasso are also offered.
Several of the galleries that stood at the first ever LAF in 1989 (originally known as Art ’89) will stand at this edition, including the Glasgow Print Studio and Brownsword Hepworth Gallery as well as long-standing regulars Austin/Desmond.
Meanwhile, Art UK, the fair’s museum partner, joins in the 30th celebrations with an exhibition highlighting 30 remarkable works from the nation’s public art collections.
Art of the Nation: Five Artists Choose is curated by Kathleen Soriano with works selected by contemporary artists such as Oscar Murillo, Sonia Boyce and Rose Wylie.
