AboutApplications are now open for artists, galleries, curatorial groups and organisations to participate in the UK's Kinetica Art Fair 2011, dedicated to kinetic, electronic and new media art.
Kinetica Art Fair is produced by Kinetica Museum and is the first of its kind in the UK. The art fair aims to bring together artists, galleries, museums and organisations from around the world that specialise and focus on kinetic, electronic, robotic, light, sound, time-based and interdisciplinary new media art. The fair provides a new international platform for collectors, curators, museums and the public to view, collect and buy artworks in this thriving and rapidly advancing arts sector.
This unique event is also designed to provide invaluable networking and educational opportunities for first-time collectors of these artworks, while promoting the mission of Kinetica Museum to support the development and commercial enterprise of kinetic, electronic and new media art.
In 2010, over 35 galleries and organisations took part with over 150 artists exhibiting. The fair received over 10,000 visitors across 4 days. Over 200 news stories were generated across leading international print and broadcast media, including BBC News, The Independent, The Daily Telegraph, CNN, Agence France Press and New York Times. There were also over 20,000 web bulletins about the event.
Kinetica Art Fair produces alongside the Fair a programme of special events, tours, talks, screenings, workshops and performances. These events will involve some of the world's most eminent leaders in the fields of kinetic, electronic and new media art.
NEW for 2011 will be a People's Award for the best artwork, installation or stand, voted for by the visiting public.
Kinetica Art Fair 2011 will take place from 3 - 6 February at Ambika P3, the 14,000 sq ft multi-disciplinary arts venue on Marylebone Rd in Central London.
