In addition to a variety of talks and events available throughout the week, the Fair will offer a number of curated spaces including:
• Platform: The Fair’s curated section Platform features well-known and emerging artists whose work aligns to a distinct theme. For 2022, Platform will explore the theme of Music and its part in contemporary visual art and look at the range of music inspired by visual art being made today.
• Photo50: Photo50 is the Fair’s annual exhibition of contemporary photography and will be curated by art historian and curator Rodrigo Orrantia. No Place is an Island presents a selection of works by British and UK-based artists, interested in questioning the idea of an island and the associated concepts of isolation and isolationism. This exhibition examines what it means to be an island in the contemporary moment.
• Art Projects: Art Projects returns for its 18th edition at the Fair to showcase the freshest contemporary art from across the globe. Art critic Pryle Behrman will introduce this section and visitors can expect a programme of collaborative video and new media initiatives.
