London: Moniker

Moniker Art Fair 2016

During a week, all the art world gathers in London, from collectors, curators, galleries and artists. The Truman Brewery building in Eats London is hosting 3 satellite Fairs to the infamous Frieze Art Fair.

Moniker Art Fair, now in its seventh year, has established itself as a key satellite event of London Art Week, showcasing emerging contemporary urban talent. Visitors engaged with numerous installations throughout the building, including an 18-metre digital ‘playground’ created by Maser, a virtual reality Oculus Rift immersive experience by Jose Montemayor  as well as workshops and conferences by TAC.  Visitors could watch artist Max Zorn create spontaneous tape art on Plexiglas, and live printing sessions at Jealous Gallery.
