The Art15 London art fair has announced that it will move to May dates from 2015. The move takes into account a number of factors, including Chinese New Year 2015 and the new timing of Art Basel in Hong Kong, which will move from May to March in 2015.
Art15 London will take place from May 21– 23, 2015 at Olympia in Kensington, West London. The date change from February to May positions the fair at the start of the London Summer season, which can only be a positive move for the event.
Tim Etchells, Founder, Art15 London commented: “We are delighted to have secured a time in May for the Fair to take place each year. This is a great time to be in London and a convenient point in the busy international art calendar for gallerists, collectors, museum directors and curators to travel to the capital.”
Stephanie Dieckvoss, Fair Director, Art15 London added: “Following positive sales and strong visitor figures at the first two editions of the Fair, we are excited to stage Art15 London at a time when London is at its best. A key component of the Fair is its international scope and the new dates will enable us to continue to work with galleries from across the globe.”
