The London Original Print Fair has announced its plans to create an online version of the fair this May due to the widespread coronavirus outbreak. Originally scheduled to take place at the Royal Academy of Arts, the highly-anticipated event will launch a version that aims to simulate the act of browsing and buying with a series of curated selections. Viewing Rooms will enable visitors to view and buy prints spanning five centuries, while a number of exhibitors will host themed exhibitions. An interactive map will give visitors the opportunity to explore different stands or return to familiar ones.
As London’s longest-running art fair, LOPF Online will host 51 print dealers, galleries and publishers from around the world, providing a resource for collectors to showcase prints on the current art market. The list of exhibitors includes CCA Galleries, Glasgow Print Studio, Peter Harrington Gallery and more. Artists range from old and modern masters like Rembrandt, Picasso, and Matisse to today’s leading artists such as David Hockney, Yayoi Kusama, and Cornelia Parker.
LOPF Online will launch May 1 on London Original Print Fair’s website and will run throughout the month of May.
For more digital print initiatives, BKC and Seeing Collective have teamed up for an #ArtistRelief2020 print sale.
