Tabish’s Top 5 Art Fairs in London to visit during Frieze week

As a Frieze week special and on top of his usual Top 5, Tabish Khan brings you five art fairs in London to visit this week. Each one comes with a short synopsis to decide whether it’s for you.


1. Frieze
Why go?: Major galleries, big name artists and wealthy collectors – the grand daddy of them all. Even with the over priced entrance fee, the place to be if you want your finger on the pulse of the art world.

2. 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair
Why go?: Contemporary African art has never been hotter than it is right now. A chance to see why this is the case

3. The Other Art Fair
Why go?: Each incarnation goes from strength to strength and now with a larger venue this is one to look forward to.


4. Touch
Why go?: About as different as it gets – you’re not only allowed to touch the work, it’s the only way to truly appreciate it.

5. Moving Image
Why go?: Video art is a genre on the rise and it’s been triggering much debate. See for yourself whether it’s still not quite there or if it’s the purest art form.
