A brief overview

This arts event takes place over three days in March every year. Based at London’s Kensington Olympia, its 182 galleries showcased arts, sculptors and exhibits from artists from 42 countries worldwide. Contributors included Nigeria, USA, the Middle East, Asia, Europe and the UK. Over the three days, 25,000 visitors attended the exhibition. In short it was a not to be missed opportunity to view the overwhelming diversity, creativity and imagination of the arts field from around the globe under one roof.

The event saw a variety of talks, guided tours, live performances and panel discussions taking place, with this year’s show focusing on Asia (see Hong Kong’s Micheal Chow* in Pearl Lam Galleries). The main gallery fronted seasoned artists, Emerge’s gallery showcased fresh talent and Not for Profit, which is UK led offered urban developments and projects like ‘A Real Birmingham Family’, (by Ikon*). This is an ongoing project immortalising in bronze a family representing contemporary life in that city. Many of Art 14’s exhibiting artists are going on to other exhibitors, Simply Woman hopes to catch up with Yinka Shonibare where he is the lead artist for Artists Open House at the Brighton Arts Festival next month (May).

Stepanie Dieckvoss Fair Director said, ‘After last year’s inaugural event we are thrilled to entertain galleries from across the globe…’ and that the current art market, ‘has seen interest in art from under represented countries…’
