The 42nd edition of the Olympia International Art & Antiques Fair will take place in London’s iconic Olympia Exhibition Centre from 5-15 June 2014. Founded in 1972, the event is the capital’s largest and most established art and antiques fair, featuring 180 specialist exhibitors from across the world.
Presenting an extensive and eclectic range of high-quality, carefully vetted art, antiques, furniture and collectibles, the fair occupies an important place in the international cultural calendar. With exhibits drawn from antiquity to the present day, and with prices ranging from £100 to £1 million, the fair is renowned as an unmissable event for seasoned collectors and connoisseurs as well as first-time buyers, dealers and interior decorators. Set in Olympia’s stunning Grand Hall, and featuring a glamorous Preview Day, late-night openings and a VIP charity night in aid of CLIC Sargent, the fair is firmly established as one of the most prestigious fixtures in London’s summer season.
Mary Claire Boyd, Fair Director, Olympia International Art & Antiques Fair, comments: “Olympia International Art & Antiques Fair is London’s original, quintessential art and antiques fair. Over four decades since the event was founded, we continue to pride ourselves on offering a wider choice of quality, vetted art, antiques, furniture and collectibles than any other event in the capital. Over the forthcoming months we look forward to announcing our exhibitor line-up alongside details of our partnerships, guest exhibition and special events programme, all of which will enhance the visitor experience and contribute to making 2014 our most exciting edition yet.”
