START Art Fair is a global gathering of artists at Saatchi Gallery this Autumn
START Art Fair is pleased to announce that it is to go ahead as planned, confirming its presence as one of the only fairs to take place in London this autumn. Faced with the impact of COVID-19 START Art Fair and Saatchi Gallery are determined to play their part in getting the art world back in business in a safe manner. START’s seventh edition will open to the public at London’s iconic Saatchi Gallery between 22 and 25 October 2020. The fair will present a programme of gallery and artist exhibitors complemented by innovative START Projects.
START will actively implement social distancing as well as a full range of sanitary protection measures that will be put into place. All measures at START Art Fair will reinforce the safety of exhibitors, visitors and service providers in strict compliance with the instructions of the British authorities. They are dedicated to working to ensure the best exhibition conditions for gallerists, staff and visitors.
Specialising in emerging talent from around the world, START Art Fair will present the works of painters, photographers, sculptors and makers from around the world. Many will represent themselves, others with galleries. Together they will combine to showcase a compelling survey of seismic art scenes and global developments from around the world.
In addition to START Art Fair, Korean Eye’s 2020 exhibition will travel from The State Hermitage in St Petersburg after a six-month stay. The show will feature a wealth of emerging and established talent from South Korea, whose use of unusual art materials in their work, (think soap, old television sets and human hair to name a few) has made them one of the most exciting and innovative contemporary art scenes in the world.
