2018 art season kicks-off with the London Art Fair’s 30th Edition (17th – 21st January 2018)

From 17 – 21 January 2018, the London Art Fair will return for its 30th anniversary edition. Launching the international art calendar, the Fair offers exceptional modern and contemporary art from leading galleries around the world.

Exhibiting AWAD galleries include Anise Gallery (Stand G37), Contemporary Collective (Stand G33), The Cynthia Corbett Gallery (Stand 5), Decorazon Gallery (Stand G12), Joanna Bryant Projects (Stand P18B) and TAG Fine Arts.

In a celebration of female artistic talent at this special Fair edition, an all-female line-up is set for Dialogues. We’re delighted that AWAD Member Joanna Bryant is taking part in this guest-curated section of Art Projects that is intended to encourage and foster relationships on a global scale. This year’s exhibition is curated by Misal Adnan Yildiz and consists of five pairs of UK-based and international galleries presenting selected works by women artists, with a high percentage of Non-European participants which includes indigenous practices from Maori, Kurdish, Asian, and African origins.

Dialogues’ Curator Misal Adnan Yildiz says:

“Every year, Kunstkompass (Art Compass) releases an annual list ‘World’s Top 100 Artists’ based on the statistics of the frequency and prestige of exhibitions, publications, and press coverage, plus the median price of an artwork. The latest release from 2016 includes only 22 women as part of the 100 ‘great artists’. The 2016 results of the annual Art Price report states that the world art market profit is based on a balance of 41% European artists, 30% Chinese artists, 15% Americans artists and 15% other nationalities. What do these numbers tell us? We need to better understand how inequalities and opportunities are constructed in the art world.

As a response to the current dynamics of the art market, Dialogues 2018 presents only female and female identifying artists from a majority of non-European galleries.

This is not just a matter of positive discrimination. As an affirmative action, it is reverse discrimination.

Yes, the future is female.”
