The Director of the London Original Print Fair (LOPF) today announced that they are developing plans for a ‘hybrid’ event next May, with details to be announced early in the New Year. Due to the ongoing uncertainty of the pandemic, LOPF will not stage a full-scale Fair at the Royal Academy of Arts in May 2021.
LOPF Online | The Platform for Prints remains open as a year-round resource at www.londonoriginalprintfair.com and will unveil a pre-Christmas relaunch on Friday 4 December.
LOPF Online launched last May in rapid response to the cancellation of the 2020 Fair at the RA, offering visitors a one-stop-shop to buy prints from old masters to newly published works and to learn about printmaking. What began as a virtual Fair has blossomed into The Platform for Prints now home to some 70 print specialists from around the world. This evolution from boutique Fair to trusted online destination for collectors and print lovers across the globe, means that print publishers and galleries can continue to showcase the very best original prints on the market. The 4 December refresh will see new material, themed Spotlight Exhibitions and Collector’s Choice selections, to offer inspiration and help visitors navigate the site.
Founded in 1985, the London Original Print Fair is the world’s longest-running print fair. Its mission is to champion original printmaking, offering the opportunity to see, learn about and buy original prints.
