“The chance to see some of contemporary art’s most exciting and ground breaking new art all in one place”
–Grace Banks, Forbes Magazine

START is now accepting applications for its fourth edition, held from September 14 to 17 at the Saatchi Gallery in London.

START is an art fair with a global focus, shining a spotlight on the most exciting emerging artists and art scenes. Offering a platform for international galleries to present the next generation of leading contemporary artists, START enables collectors, curators, and the public to discover new talent from around the world.

START has earned a reputation for offering a fresh perspective within the international art fair calendar, and established itself as a springboard for commercial success, with artists such as Team Lab and Faig Ahmed earning acclaim for their past presentations at the fair.

In 2016, START welcomed 70 international galleries from 25 countries, representing work from Singapore to South Africa and Italy to Iran. This year, START are offering exhibitors a range of opportunities, from focused solo booths to larger spaces for curated group presentations.

“This international snapshot affords vast opportunities for collectors…In an increasingly borderless contemporary art world, START offers a means of navigation.”
–Imelda Barnard, Apollo Magazine

“Is there room for another art fair in London? In the case of START, the answer has to be YES!”
