This January, Artscapy is teaming up with London Art Fair as LAF’s Digital Partner.

London Art Fair was founded in 1989 and shares a major goal with us here at Artscapy: to bring exceptional artwork to wide audiences. Begun and resident in Islington’s Business Design Centre, LAF has developed into a must-visit event in any serious art collector’s calendar.  

Boasting 20,000 visitors per fair and hosting over 100 UK-based and international Modern and Contemporary galleries (and over 35,000 artists), London Art Fair works to celebrate established and emerging talent and to nurture collectors at any stage of their collecting journey. This mission made Artscapy’s collaboration with the fair so natural - that’s our mission too. 

Like us, London Art Fair doesn’t settle for how things have been done before. The fair incorporates an extensive talks programme, guest-curated areas and thematic collaborative projects by galleries, curators and thinkers, beyond just showcasing excellent artworks.

This year’s ‘Platform’ section will explore the theme ‘Reframing the Muse’ led by art historian Ruth Millington and LAF’s ‘Encounters’ element is guest curated by Pryle Behrman. LAF’s 2023 ‘Photo 50’ - a segment dedicated to celebrating contemporary photography -  has been curated by Pelumi Odubanjo and Katy Barron around the theme ‘Beautiful Experiments’, bringing together the work of women photographers engaging with their diasporic identities and generational heritages.

This year’s Museum Partner is London’s Ben Uri Gallery and Museum, founded in 1915 and dedicated to championing the work of immigrant, Jewish and POC artists. 

For the fair, Artscapy will present our exhibition ‘Observing the Human’, which ran at our Shoreditch home in July 2022. The exhibition showcases the work of five South Korean artists working as part of the ‘Noonssup’ collective project, led by artists Bongu Park and Ga Ram Kim. ‘Observing the Human’ explores human perception, expressions of existence in a digital landscape and identity enhancement and distortion at the hands of technology. Sejin Kim, Gihun Noh, Daniel Schine Lee,  Ga Ram Kim and Bongsu Park present work that engages deeply with the current art historical discussions regarding the role of NFTs and AI in art production. 

Please come and say hello to the Artscapy team at Stand S3 during the LAF weekend. We’re thrilled to be seeing in the New Year with a collaboration that so neatly aligns with our values and puts us in front of the art-collecting audience that means so much to us.

To celebrate our partnership with London Art Fair, we are offering free insurance on any artwork purchased during the fair.
