PRESS RELEASE: For immediate release.

Parallax AF showcases new artists from

India, Chile, Sudan, Israel and Lebanon

New International Contemporary Art Fair in London, Parallax AF, will Showcase New

Emerging Artists from Around the World

Artists from India, Chile, Sudan, Israel and Lebanon will exhibit alongside emerging artists from USA, UK, Europe and

Australia at Parallax AF, a new art fair that will take place at La Galleria, Royal Opera Arcade, Pall Mall, London (UK) from

14th 23rd October.

“This is the second theoretical fair that we have

developed,” explained Dr Chris Barlow, art historian and

director at Barlow Fine Art. “I’m particularly pleased that

the new concept is attracting international artists from as

far as Australia, the Middle East and South America. The

quality of the work and ideas is always extremely high.

With the event taking place at about the same time as

Frieze Art Fair, London will be packed more than usual

with those interested in contemporary art and new ideas.

This time there will also be a lecture series, which is

something very close to my own heart. For Parallax AF is

designed not simply to ask the difficult questions about

how we curate, think about, and view contemporary art

today, with all the subsidiary questions that go along with

that, but to place them into the public domain so that

everyone can get involved in the debates too.”

About Parallax AF

Parallax AF is the first art fair of its kind to use new

theories from art history in its approach. It showcases

established and emerging international contemporary

artists and is curated by a guest curator. It is a serious

platform for artists to present their work to national and

international dealers, art industry people, collectors,

critics and buyers without commission charges in an

exhibition format underpinned with critical theory. It

aims to provide a key service in helping artists promote

and sell their work, as well as providing a platform for

developing their careers and practice. It is loosely divided

into two exhibition showcases presenting abstraction/conceptual and figurative/conceptual art.

The second Parallax AF of this year takes place on Friday 14th October to Sunday 23rd October 2011 at La Galleria, Royal

Opera Arcade, Pall Mall and is “curated” by Dr Chris Barlow.
