galleryELL is excited to be participating in the biennial sluice__Art Fair in London, UK, this October.
This October sees the return of one of the UK’s most important art fairs – and we’re not talking about frieze.
– Jack Hutchinson
The 2015 edition of sluice__ will host approximately 35 artist/curator-run and emerging galleries from around the world.
sluice__ positions itself in the centre of London during Frieze week in order to create a space for critically engaged art that finds itself in conflict with the hyper commercialised environment of the art fair as trade fair. sluice__ is thereby a counter-balance to the predominant model. sluice__ occupies the form of the art fair but is not beholden to the art fair model in its current state.
sluice__ is an art initiative run by an artist, a curator and an art educationalist. Since its inception in 2011, sluice__’s emphasis has been on open and collaborative practice, with a strong program of education, performance and publishing. sluice__ is a critical platform which takes on different guises (including art fairs, expos and exhibitions) to investigate the very nature of art and its relationship to commerce.
