Sunday Art Fair 2011 London Ambika P3 Space


13 -16 October 2011

Taking place at the P3 space on Marylebone Road in London, SUNDAY ART FAIR is a gallery-led art fair showing a selection of 20 young international galleries, exhibiting work by artists at the fore of emerging talent.

Housed in the Ambika P3, a 14,000 square foot, triple height subterranean space, the fair is free and open to all. SUNDAY aims to provide an easy going and accessible temporary platform for young galleries to exhibit their artists’ work. Following from last year, SUNDAY is a fair with no booths or divisions and this year exhibiting galleries will each show solo or duo artist presentations, adding to the open nature of the fair.

SUNDAY’s first outing was in Berlin at the 2010 Gallery Weekend where it was so well received the organisers decided to bring it to London during the 2010 October art week, where it received more than 5,000 visitors over just 3 days. About Sunday Art Fair 2010 in London.

SUNDAY is organised by three of the participating galleries: Croy Nielsen (Berlin), Limoncello (London) and Tulips and Roses (Brussels) and sponsored by the Zabludowicz Collection.

SUNDAY ART FAIR celebrated its return to London on Wednesday night with an opening party at the ICA. Over 1,000 curators, artists, gallerists and art lovers, including the dashing Will Young, filled the ICA’s bar and Nash and Brandon rooms, where dj collective Top Nice provided tunes to dance to until 1am.
