Multiplied Art Fair

I went to visit the first Multiplied Art Fair at Christie's in London on it's last night. Exhibitors included many traditional commercial galleries showing some fabulous prints by the likes of Francis Bacon, Damien Hirst and Eduardo Paolozzi at equally FABULOUS prices! But the new and refreshing element of this show was the inclusion of many newer contemporary galleries including Bearspace from Deptford South East London, Nobrow who publish books and posters from many talented illustrators and Print Club London who champion the fine art of silk screen printing. A quick chat with Adele from Bearspace established that the galleries and curators are comfortable with this mix where mainstream galleries are happy to be pitched alongside up n coming  outfits and the newer folds enjoy the kudos of displaying with their bigger counterparts. All in all it was a fantastic free event packed full of some incredible prints with the highlights for me being editions by David Spiller and Grayson Perry. Well done Christie's!!!
