First up, Milan has just opened its doors, enjoying a fun-filled arty weekend with 85 local, national and international galleries. The new Young Talents section proved popular, and the Kids Lab area hosted all sorts of workshops for the little ones.
Brussels kicks off on Friday 17 February. In its ninth year, it’s tipped to be the best yet, with an abundance of arty treats in store from 96 exhibiting galleries. Join a contemporary art lecture, get involved with the installations, try a screen printing workshop with UNSPILL or support their charity beneficiary, Think-Pink, by buying one of their beautiful photographs.
For Londoners, Battersea is back with its fabulous Charity Private View on Wednesday 8 March and showcasing the very best of contemporary paintings, stunning sculptures and editioned prints. Continuing to spread the message that you don’t need to be an expert to fall in love with art, their packed creative programme includes activities for kids and adults alike, whether seasoned visitors or newbies looking to learn a new skill.
For those Stateside, New York opens at the end of March in Chelsea’s Metropolitan Pavilion. Back for its 23rd edition, we can’t wait to see what art-curious surprises they have in store!
Early April sees the wonderful Singapore edition return to the F1 Pit Building, with hands-on advice, educational workshops and a non-intimidating, friendly environment to find your favourite piece and take art home.
Come May, we welcome back the Hampstead fair to the leafy Heath, for more firm favourites, emerging talent and opportunities to get creative, in one of our favourite London spots.
Finally, we’re rounding off our Spring season with the Hong Kong fair, returning for its fifth year. With last year's fair proving a wunderkammern of creative talent - presenting its art salon with TEDxHongKong and the annual Young Talent Hong Kong - we’re looking forward to a whole new wave of creative happenings this May.
So whether you’re looking to splurge, discover untapped talent or try something new, our spring fairs are sure to inspire. And don’t forget - you can have a sneak peek online at lots of sensational arty offerings before the fairs, on our beautiful new website.
