Affordable Art Fair Battersea Autumn Visual Arts

affordable_art_fair_battersea_autumn


Affordable Art Fair celebrates its 20th anniversary at the Battersea Autumn Fair. Delve into ‘90s nostalgia with a jam-packed programme!

From creating your very own pop culture and neon artworks, to learning the trick to discovering the next YBA, the Fair will take visitors back to the decade where it all began.

The breakout artists of the past and the future will join forces in a special edition of the Recent Graduates’ exhibition. Since 1999, Founder Will Ramsay has used the Autumn Fair as a launch pad for the hottest new artists. This October artists from the past 20 years of the Fair will exhibit alongside the budding photographers, painters and sculptors of tomorrow.
Other highlights from the Fair include:

Cool Britannia
Recreate a Brit Art classic without breaking the bank with a Central St Martins’ led workshop on neon portraiture in the style of YBA Gary Hume. If you’re looking to dip your toe into some ‘90s pop culture, you can learn how to draw cartoon classics like Bart Simpson and Beavis and Butthead with London Fine Art Studios, and even make your own scrunchie with textile designer Samantha Warren.

21st Century YBAs
The YBAs of the ‘90s made contemporary artists into modern-day celebrities, but can you find the next Damien Hirst or Tracey Emin? Affordable Art Fair has you covered with a programme full of opportunities to meet the rising stars of the future, including talks and live art demonstrations from Marcelina Amelia of Liberty Gallery and Tim Fowler from Leicester-based StudionAme.

Party like it’s 1999 at the Charity Private View
20 years ago Fair Founder Will Ramsay opened the doors to what is now a global enterprise – and he has planned a big party to celebrate! Grab a complimentary drink and explore art after dark with DJs and roving entertainers at the Charity Private View, in support of Royal Trinity Hospice.

Get the inside scoop on a Tour du Jour
Whether you’re an aficionado or an art fair rookie, the Affordable Art Fair guides are holding daily tours to take you through the Fair highlights. This year the tours will focus on key pieces that hark back to 90s trends such as the pop art revival, as well unveiling the best bargain finds and hottest emerging artists.

Celebrate at the Thursday Late
Missed the Charity Private View? Fear not as the Thursday Late provides the ultimate post-work release with complimentary drinks, workshops and talks that run into the night, including a special appearance from screenprinting maverick Dave Buonaguidi of Jealous Gallery.
