The Vauxhall Art Car Boot Fair (Brick Lane) is an annual institution which after over 10 years still manages to keep itself fresh, by involving new and exciting emerging artists and features. The main proposition of the fair is to give young or first rung collectors the opportunity to buy artworks by first rate British Artists such as Peter Blake, Tracey Emin and Gavin Turk. The fair returns to Brick Lane on June 12th and it’s all hands on deck to bring you the most incredible line-up of artists, art and frivolity yet. Artlyst will be there for the first time with a stellar line-up of work by Keith Levene (The Clash/PIL) Mark Woods, Rebecca Scott, Darren Coffield, Martin Sexton, Vanya Balogh, Michael Petry and More all at boot fair prices….
Last year the fair went to the dogs for inspiration with a celebration of our four-legged friends. This year it is all about the hand. Slap! As well as bootfuls of art, hand-made, drawn, painted, thrown, tooled and printed, there’ll be astonishing glove -puppet performances, palm readings, sleights of hand, artisanship and thrilling things to do with your own hands! Originals, limited editions and maybe even a few second-hand objets… who knows? A bird in the hand is worth two in the boot at this year’s super exciting Art Car Boot Fair! This year’s stellar line-up (see below), meets the public on June 12th, doors open at midday at the corner of Brick Lane and Buxton Street.
