Draw Art Fair London 2020: Old Master, Modern and Contemporary Drawing
Draw Art Fair London proudly returns for its second edition, from 21–24 May 2020, when British and international galleries will again take over all three floors of Saatchi Gallery.
This year, the fair is expanding its scope to include works from Old Master to contemporary drawing. It aims to present all facets of drawing and show how it has always been – and remains – a fundamental artistic practice. By creating a platform where rare works by Old and Modern masters and recent works from the 21st century stand side by side, Draw Art Fair London provides an unrivalled opportunity for visitors to discover the new, and to rediscover established artists.
Draw Art Fair London was launched in 2019 and was the first fair in the UK dedicated to modern and contemporary drawing. The fair’s reach is thoroughly international and last year galleries came from sixteen countries: UK, Switzerland, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Belgium, Portugal, Russia, Japan, USA, Spain, Australia, South Korea, China, Turkey.
For the second year, exhibitors are invited to curate individual exhibitions of artists’ drawings, or groups of drawings, in a museum-style context. Exhibitors can juxtapose drawings with related paintings, sculptures, photos or videos, in a ratio of approximately 70% to 30%, using drawing as the core concept and placing it at the heart of a broader perspective on artistic creation and production.
Saatchi Gallery in the heart of Chelsea is a landmark building, formerly the Duke of York's Headquarters, and is ideally located in central London near Sloane Square on King's Road, Chelsea.
