New Fair

On Monday the postman brought an invitation to the first edition of Art13 London, the city's newest art fair taking place 1-3 March 2013.

Waiting to be filled: Olympia Grand Hall

Fairtigue, you say? How will this one be different from all the other art fairs

It seems that Art13 is tapping into the mid-market. Heavyweights such as Zwirner or Hauser & Wirth are absent from the 130 participants, instead younger and lighter galleries such as Mancunian International 3 will act as a platform for talents to be established.

Which is exciting. On top of that, the fair will offer plenty of free talks, performances, and specially-curated art projects, just like Frieze - for half their admission prize.

And their catering partner is Fortnum & Mason. 

I think I am ready.
