More than 23,000 visitors came to the London Art Fair last year, to see what is becoming Britain’s largest art fair for modern UK and international art. Major UK art dealers such as Richard Green, FAS and Jonathan Clark Fine Art will be joined by newcomers Poussin Gallery, Pratt Contemporary, Golden Thread Gallery and Charlie Smith London, among others.

We will be making a special trip to visit Bearspace, the Deptford-based gallery which is putting on the exhibition ‘Feudal’ as part of the fair’s Art Projects section of curated shows. Two photographers, Suzanne Moxhay and Jasmina Cibic, will present up-to-date interpretations of feudal life. The Arts Projects section is becoming one of the must-see elements of the Art Fair, with 27 UK and international galleries taking part this year. The fair is also putting on the ‘Photo50’ contemporary photography showcase, displaying works from 50 artists.

At the Bearspace Gallery in Deptford, the next exhibition will be a solo show by Jane Ward, opening 29th January and running until 26th February. Ward digitally constructs layered images to create new landscapes, and manually disturbs the ink of the printed product to create a unique effect.

The London Art Fair runs between 19th and 23rd January at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London N1. Open 11am to 9pm on Wednesday and Thursday, 11am to 7pm on Friday, 11am to 7pm on Saturday and 10am to 5pm on Sunday. Find Bearspace at stand P19 upstairs in the ‘Arts Projects’ section. From 29th January, visit the Bearspace Gallery at 152 Deptford High Street, London SE8, open Wednesday to Saturday 10am - 6pm.
