Art16 returns to Olympia London from 20 – 22 May 2016
Since its inaugural edition in 2013, Art16 has become a highlight of London’s cultural calendar, kicking off the summer season with a compelling edit of international artists and galleries from more than 30 countries from around the globe.
The Fair will present over 1000 outstanding artworks from artists and galleries from every continent, maintaining our unique commitment to showcasing exciting emerging talent alongside established contemporary artists.
Art16 unites art-lovers, collectors, gallerists and artists from around the globe, together with an engaging programme of free talks, expert-led tours and performances, and a highly anticipated revolving pop-up restaurant by Corbin & King, the duo behind The Wolseley and The Delaunay.
Art16 is an unmissable occasion for art-loving Londoners and international collectors alike.
The Fair was founded in 2013 to strong international acclaim by Tim Etchells and Sandy Angus the original founders of ART HK, Asia’s leading international contemporary art fair which was sold to Art Basel in 2012. Etchell’s and Angus have in recent years launched a portfolio of leading contemporary art fairs including Sydney Contemporary, Art International Istanbul and Art Central Hong Kong.
Since its launch in 2013, the award-winning London architects Stiff + Trevillion have been involved in the design of the Fair. They have been long associated with the arts, having installed numerous exhibition interiors for the Royal Academy, as well as for Art HK in 2012.
