In January Art UK will be the official Museum Partner for the London Art Fair.
An achievement for an organisation that is not a museum!
However, art from museums (and other collections) will very much be the focus our partnership with the London Art Fair, as we stage our first ever exhibition, titled 'Art of the Nation – Five Artists Choose'. For what will doubtless be a terrific show we have asked curator Kathleen Soriano to work with five artists who have each selected artworks from the Art UK website based on themes personal to them. Our artists are Sonia Boyce, Mat Collishaw, Haroon Mirza, Oscar Murillo and Rose Wylie.
In January Kathleen will write for Art UK about the exhibition and the artworks chosen by our artists.
In the meantime, if you would like to buy tickets for the London Art Fair, which enters its 30th year in 2018, you can get a two for one deal on tickets (£15.95 for two plus booking fees) by using the code ARTUK before 14th January by visiting https://www.londonartfair.co.uk/visitor-information/tickets/.
