London’s calling all collectors this week. The 29th edition of the London Art Fair opened its doors yesterday at the Business Design Centre in Islington, where Modern British art is being proudly displayed. However, this doesn’t mean that contemporary artists are being neglected here; in fact, there will be a big presence thanks to the collaboration of Art Projects, which will showcase a curated collection from artists all over the world. Highlights include large-scale installations, solo and thematic group shows, and collaborative film and new media works. It’s also calling for its array of museum and gallery exhibitions happening all over the city, many of which are free to visit. If you’re an art lover and Anglophile, you’re in luck—here, there’s plenty of it on view.
