START Art Fair is a global gathering of artists taking place at Saatchi Gallery this October.
The contemporary art fair will go ahead in London next month with full consideration given to the safety of exhibitors and visitors alike. To allow social distancing there will be three timed sessions daily. Read more about our Covid-19 adaptations here.
In addition to START Art Fair, Korean Eye’s 2020 exhibition Creativity and Daydream will travel from The State Hermitage in St Petersburg after a six-month stay. The show will feature a wealth of emerging and established talent from South Korea.
The art fair showcases local London galleries as well as international galleries and individual contemporary artists from all over the world. Collectors, enthusiasts and critics attend START, housed in the iconic Saatchi Gallery to buy the best contemporary art and to discover emerging contemporary artists. To complement the exhibitors START presents a series of must-see curated Projects and a calendar of daily special events.

START IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE
Featuring artists and galleries from Europe, North America and Asia
The gallery booths at START are complimented by a series of curated projects that draw further focus on emerging artists and new art scenes.
START Projects reflect the fair’s global agenda and reputation of combining credible and critically acclaimed exhibitions alongside compelling gallery showcases.
The aim is to offer the START audience an alternative, engaging art fair experience that also provides artists with a dynamic global platform which generates stimulating dialogues with other artists, art-world figures, collectors and influencers.
START 2020’s projects include works by three British artists; Lincoln Townley, Nat Bowen and Lucy Morrish.
After the success of the inaugural Art World Forum symposium at START 2018 we expanded the 2019 programme to include a half day conference as well as additional talks and Collectors Club events.
The Collectors’ Club’s aim is to foster START’s mission to support emerging artists by discovering and presenting ‘tomorrow’s art today’, bringing together diverse but like minded individuals, collectors, artists and forward thinking art organisations and businesses, innovators and pioneers.
The Collectors Club hosts dinners, lunches and studio visits internationally.
