LATINOS @ Parallax Art Fair: 16 – 18 May 2012

Parallax AF grew out of an international exhibition called “Parallax” that was conceived and curated by the art historian and theorist Dr Chris Barlow.  Some latin american artists are involved this year from Argentina / Chile / Spain / Costa Rica / Mexico.

Parallax AF is different from other artists’ fairs in that it is like a specialised exhibition. It is a serious platform for international and national artists to present their work to national and international dealers, art industry people, collectors, critics and buyers without commission charges. This also provides artists with the benefit, if they wish, to present non-commercial work, or to try out new commercial ideas, without high overhead risks often associated with other fairs.

Parallax AF is also smaller and intimate than other fairs, and held in a professional gallery space in central London. The shows are curated by a professional guest curator, having the feel of an organised exhibition, and catalogue essays are written by specialists. Parallax AF aims to provide a key service in helping artists to promote and sell their work, as well as providing a platform for developing their careers and practice.

Parallax Art Fair is the first art fair of its kind to investigate new theories from art history in its approach. It showcases established and emerging international contemporary artists.The fourth edition of Parallax Art Fair takes place on Wednesday 16th May to Friday 18th May 2012 at Chelsea Town Hall, King’s Road, and is “curated” by Dr Chris Barlow.Parallax Art Fair opens at Chelsea Town Hall, King’s Road, Chelsea, London, UKThe fair showcases contemporary art from West & East Europe, USA, Asia, South America, Turkey, UAE and Oceania.It opens from 16th – 18th May 2012.

    I really can’t thank Chris Barlow enough for giving me the chance to be present at the opening night event of the Parallax Exhibition where I made some fine friends. And, what a brilliant idea it is to have an exhibition like this giving so many artists to exhibit just what they wish.

    Apologies for not having been in touch earlier. I shall be in touch again.
