From 17 – 21 January 2018, the London Art Fair will return for its 30th anniversary edition. Launching the international art calendar, the Fair offers exceptional modern and contemporary art from leading galleries around the world.

In a celebration of female artistic talent at this special Fair edition, an all-female line-up is set for Dialogues. We’re delighted that AWAD Member Joanna Bryant is taking part in this guest-curated section of Art Projects that is intended to encourage and foster relationships on a global scale. This year’s exhibition is curated by Misal Adnan Yildiz and consists of five pairs of UK-based and international galleries presenting selected works by women artists, with a high percentage of Non-European participants which includes indigenous practices from Maori, Kurdish, Asian, and African origins.

Friday, September 23rd, 2016

LAPADA the Association of Art & Antiques Dealers announces an agreement with the Association of Women Art Dealers (AWAD) that sees them waive the joining fees for applicants who hold membership to the other.

Rebecca Davies, LAPADA Association CEO, comments: ‘attracting a wider representation of female dealers is something we support. AWAD shares LAPADA’s commitment to offering its members the skills and expertise to trade competitively within the international art market. We look forward to working together and encouraging collaborations between the two groups.’

Susan Mumford, Founder and CEO of AWAD, adds, “The support of art dealers’ enterprises is increasingly vital in a rapidly evolving world. With distinct types of support for members, notably LAPADA’s annual fair and AWAD’s focus on peer-to-peer networking on an international scale, differing needs of dealers are met by the two organisations. We look forward to seeing members’ businesses thrive all the more as a result of tapping into both trade associations.”
