LONDON.- London Art Fair today announces details of Art Projects, the Fair’s curated showcase of the freshest contemporary art. Focusing on London’s leading contemporary galleries, Art Projects will again provide a critical platform for demonstrating the breadth and depth of contemporary art today. Art Projects will present a snapshot of the current practice and concerns of artists shown through installations, solo shows and group displays.

Exhibitors include Hannah Barry, showing images from The Evaluation of Space series by Oliver Griffin: a photographic documentation of the context in which the artist’s life plays out; Poppy Sebire, who in presenting the work of Georgie Hopton poses questions about the coming together of nature and culture; and Limoncello, displaying a space inspired by ITV’s popular dating show Take Me Out.

This year's Art Projects sees contemporary artists looking at some of life's big questions: La Scatola Gallery's project surveys four artists evolving with and against the prophetic notions of art and civilization; Hoxton Art Gallery's stand explores how new facets of modern living could be revealed by advances in biological understanding; and, looking into the future, BEARSPACE's presentation examines the burgeoning science of artificial intelligence.

Pryle Behrman, Art Projects curator comments: “The works in Art Projects are characterised by a gentle questioning that looks at gradually-unravelling developments from a critical new angle, one that is never cynical or simplistic. These are artists who find questions where perhaps none were seen before, and never have the hubris to suggest that the answers are easy to find.”

Highlights from selected galleries include:

· Mimicking ITV’s popular dating show Take Me Out, Limoncello presents a group show of 30 wall-based works by female artists snugly installed and jostling for attention opposite an easel displaying one work by a male artist. As the artworks sell, or the female artist is ‘picked’, they will be quickly replaced by a new artist, replicating the show’s flow of contestants.

· Presenting a solo exhibition by Samara Scott, an artist whose practice draws upon everyday objects, The Sunday Painter will play with ideas of place and identity by transforming its booth into an ‘interior showroom’ complete with carpet, vases and artworks, creating an immersive viewing experience.

· Beers.Lambert considers how history and memory is reframed and skewed by the personal perspective of the artist through an exhibition of photographs by Gigi Cifali, sculptures by Amir Fattal and paintings by Andrew Salgado and duo Roberto and Renato Miaz

· Curated by exhibiting artist Doug Jones, Precious Footings presented by Ceri Hand draws upon Jones’ interest in the depiction of people in power, and how their public life is illustrated or acted out. The exhibition will show new works by gallery artists Rebecca Lennon, Eleanor Moreton, Samantha Donnelly, S Mark Gubb and Doug Jones

· In an exhibition titled Location of Reality, Hanmi Gallery will bring together a group of established and emerging artists whose practices employ new media arts to explore themes from observed societal realities to the postmodern discourse of hyper-reality

· For the 4th year, The Catlin Guide will present a selection of 40 of the most promising new graduate artists in the UK, as recommended by a wide survey of curators, collectors, gallerists and course tutors.

Other Art Projects highlights will include a group show from COLE, which explores the possibilities of the photographic medium and new works made for London Art Fair by Kate Hawkins and Darren Marshall, presented by Gallery Vela.

Art Projects provides a unique environment for younger galleries and new work, complementing the great names of 20th century British Art and contemporary work from leading figures featured in the Main Fair. Art Projects has established itself as an important international platform for new galleries to showcase the most stimulating contemporary practice.

London Art Fair tickets are now on sale at £12 (plus £1.50 booking fee) in advance, including a copy of the 2013 Fair Guide (to be collected at the Fair). Tickets on the door are £16.
