Olympia International Art & Antiques Fair
Dates: 18-28 June 2015
Venue: Olympia London
Celebrating its 43rd year, Olympia is London’s original art and antiques fair. It brings together a collection of the world’s leading dealers and is attended by seasoned collectors, first time buyers, casual art and antique lovers as well as international interior decorators.
Set against the light and airy backdrop of Olympia’s National Hall, each of the 160 specialist dealers will display an irresistible array of beautiful, rare and unusual works of art rich with provenance and timeless originality.
Known for its extraordinary range of pieces for sale, the fair offers a wider choice of high quality, vetted art, antiques and collectors’ pieces than any other event in London. From Old Masters to Miro, antique rugs to Art Deco jewellery, dinosaurs eggs to Warhol, 17th century oak tables to modern design classics and Picasso to tribal works, the fair covers over 30 categories.
With prices ranging from £100 to £1 million, each piece is sourced throughout the year and reserved especially for the fair.
There is a stimulating and varied talks programme featuring speakers from institutions such as The V&A, The British Museum, The Dulwich Picture Gallery and The Ashmolean Museum to name but a few. There are also daily tours of Fair highlights with independent art consultant, Vanessa Curry.
For the first time outside the USA, Missouri-based philanthropists Dr. Jeanne and Rex Sinquefield, will exhibit their personal collection of works by American Regionalist Artists concerned with chronicling the ‘dust bowl years’ of rural America in the 1930’s. This guest Exhibition will include works from seminal artists including Thomas Hart Benton, Joe Jones, John Atherton, John Rogers Cox and Steuart Curry.
Whilst these artists are well known in the USA, they will be a revelation for British audiences, offering a poignant window upon a terrible period of austerity which is still relevant today.
