Art15, the third edition of London’s global art fair sponsored by Citi Private Bank, welcomed thousands of collectors and art lovers to the fair's opening day. Art15 runs at Olympia in Kensington until Saturday 23 May.

150 of the world’s most exciting galleries from 40 countries showcase modern masters through to contemporary talents. From Amman to Amsterdam, New York to New Delhi and Sao Paulo to Seoul, Art15 presents art from across the globe, making it one of the most significant cultural events of London’s summer season.



The Galleries section welcomes established galleries from around the world to showcase a wide variety of media, from the masters of the modern era, through to leading international artists from the contemporary scene.


The Emerge section wholly encompasses the curatorial notion of emerging – from markets to galleries to artists. Jonathan Watkins, Director of Ikon Gallery in Birmingham and an ambassador for emerging artists, is the curatorial advisor for Emerge.

London First

Art15 continues its commitment to providing young galleries with a strong platform in London. Selected by curatorial advisor Aaron Cezar, Director of Delfina Foundation, London First provides unique access to galleries making their debut in London.
