20/21 ART FAIR For February 2012
The 20/21 INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR will take place at the Royal College of Art, in Kensington Gore, London SW7, from 16 - 19 February 2012. Jeffrey Archer will open the Fair at 12 noon on the 16th.
The fair features modern and contemporary art from the UK but has a significant number of dealers who specialise in work from China, India, Japan, Russia, Poland, Serbia and the Ukraine.
However, art from a whole host of other countries will also be on show including many European countries, and, this year a special exhibit from Australia. International names include Braque, Chagall, Matisse, Miro, Picasso (all works on paper), plus British favourites such as Peter Blake, Damien Hirst, David Hockney and Henry Moore, together with many emerging and less well known artists whose work will be there to be discovered and enjoyed. An added attraction is a display from the Royal College of Art Printmaking Department.
The fair is now in its sixth year and has carved out a special place in the arts calendar. Such was the demand for stands at the last fair the organisers were able to take more space at the Royal College bringing the number of stands to 60. This enlarged fair was very popular and it will now stay this size.
Included will be oils, original prints, watercolours, drawings plus some photography, sculpture and ceramics – ranging from 1900 to the present day. The price range is from a few hundred upwards.
Society in the UK is now more cosmopolitan than ever. This diversity is reflected in today's art scene in general, and in the 20|21 International Art Fair, in particular. Photo: Shepard Fairey (b. 1970 USA) ‘Panther Power’, 2008 Silkscreen on metal, signed, dated and numbered. From Dominic Guerrini.
