MONIKER ART FAIR returns this year in a brand new location, Brick Lane’s iconic Old Truman Brewery.
Attracting some of the most renowned and talked about artists, galleries and curators, Moniker is a four day event, shining the spotlight on a generation of artists influenced by the urban environment.
Showcasing established and emerging artists along with a creative programme of events including live painting, talks, tours, film screenings and exclusive art releases, it’s one of the stand out events of the calendar year.
Also, for the first time, Moniker will be sharing the exhibition space with The Other Art Fair. Together, they will form a big destination for London’s Autumn art week.
Galleries confirmed for 2013 include London-based STOLEN SPACE, who represent celebrated artists D*Face and Shepard Fairey, Netherlands LOOK FOR ART who will bring the much-admired duo The London Police back to UK shores, and HANG UP GALLERY who will sell works including secondary market Banksy works.
JEALOUS PRINT STUDIOS return again to host live screen printing, with limited edition prints and affordable editions created and signed by artists on site, whilst ALTERNATIVE LONDON will lead street art tours of the surrounding area and fair walk-throughs with their resident experts.
To supplement the artworks and installations, Moniker will present a series of topical talks, discussions and screenings, with artists, curators and gallerists invited to discuss and debate the burning issues and main talking points currently facing the movement.
Since its inaugural year in 2010, Moniker has championed numerous artists who have gone on to become key players in the contemporary art world , including the likes of Ben Eine, Herakut, and Polly Morgan. This next edition of MONIKER ART FAIR promises to cement its reputation as a leading, taste-making and opinion-forming touchstone in the annual art calendar.
