It is set on the first floor of the 4-star luxury hotel where every room is turned into an exhibition space, and it is also the only fair inviting artists for free. The organisers received over 800 applications from all over the world and assure that this edition promises to be thought-provoking, mind-bending and awe-inspiring. The Fair will take place from the 21st to the 23rd of January.

Attracting leading galleries, collectors, curators, critics and art dealers, ARTROOMS is the premier show for independent artists looking to enter the London Art Market. In a successful partnership with the Meliá White House, a deluxe high-end hotel in Regent’s Park, ARTROOMS offers an innovative platform to support the artist career. Taking place on the first floor of the hotel, each artist gets the unique opportunity to transform one room into their own creative space and turn it into a unique and intimate environment to showcase their work. Visitors get the chance to meet the person behind the work and buy art on scene, while art galleries seem to have found a hunting ground for scouting unrepresented talents.
The ARTROOMS Selection Committee for this up-coming edition counts on experts such as S2 Sotheby’s Gallery’s Director Fru Tholstrup, UK multi awarded YBA artist Gavin Turk, art dealer Louisa Grasso Omar, curators Sam Walker and Bronac Ferran, and art critic Michael Barnett, just to name a few.
Among the 70 Selected artists, a prominent section is by 28 European artists, while UK will be represented by 19 artists, 8 from Asia, including Japan, Malaysia and Korea, 1 from Israel, 1 from Turkey and 11 from the Americas and Canada.
Other highly recommended events of the week are the London Art Fair, this year’s museum partner is the Lightbox presenting major works from The Ingram Collection in a unique exhibition ‘Ten Years: A Century of Art’.
