I highly recommend dropping in to SUNDAY this week. With no exclusive preview, no snobbery and no entry charge it is a new art fair that should provide a pleasant change to the big-name, big-ticket FRIEZE fair. SUNDAY’s first outing was in Berlin during the 2010 Gallery Weekend where it was so well received the organisers decided to bring it to London during Frieze week. It is being held at Ambika P3 on Marylebone Road – a 14,000 square foot, triple height subterranean space. Just down the Marylebone Road from Frieze it is also easy to add to your Frieze itinerary.
Organised by three of the participating galleries: Limoncello (London), Croy Neilsen (Berlin) and Tulips and Roses (Brussels) and sponsored by the Zabludowicz Collection, the stated aim of the fair is to provide an easy-going and accessible temporary platform for young galleries to exhibit their artists’ work. An international, gallery-led art fair it will be showing a selection of about twenty young galleries which will be exhibiting work by over 60 international artists.
Refreshingly entry to Sunday is free – compare that to Frieze’s astonishing £25 charge – and talking of refreshment five artists (Fiona Banner, David Batchelor, Liam Gillick, Christian Jankowski and Bob and Roberta Smith) have been asked to design a cocktail for the bar. The artists will be mixing, shaking and serving them for customers at allotted times – I shall look forward to it!
SUNDAY will be open:
Thursday 14th October 12pm – 8pm
Friday 15th October 12pm – 8pm
Saturday 16th October 12pm – 6pm
