Applications to Art16, London’s most diverse contemporary art fair, are now open.

Art16 will return to Olympia from Friday, May 20 to Sunday, May 22, with a preview day on Thursday, May 19 (by invitation only). The show will bring together leading galleries, curators and collectors from around the world and feature works ranging from the Modern period of the early 20th century to the most contemporary artists of today.

These diverse and dynamic presentations reflect Art16′s positioning as a locus for new and established collectors to discover galleries and artists from every corner of the world.

The main sector of the show will feature galleries presenting the highest quality of painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, photography, video and editioned works. A strong list of returning exhibitors will be joined by galleries who will exhibit within the sector for the first time, having previously shown in London First or Emerge.

London First
A curated platform for galleries founded during or after 2006 and have yet to exhibit in London. This subsidised section underscores Art16′s commitment to offering a different global platform. London First welcomes solo artist presentations with an international focus.

A self-contained curated section for young galleries founded during or after 2009. Welcoming solo or dual artist shows, this subsidised presentation confirms Art16′s commitment to the next generation of emerging talent.  A central exhibition within Emerge will draw works from participating galleries.

Public Programme
This will be complemented by an extensive public programme featuring talks, projects,and tours to give context and foster dialogue for exhibiting galleries and visitors.  Further details of the Public Programme will be released in early 2016.

Art16 is delighted to be working with the following partners on the fourth edition of the fair:
