Sluice is an artist/curator run art fair for artist/curator run galleries and projects. The fair is staged in central London during Frieze week. Sluice is conceived of as a multifarious exhibition, embracing and building on the collaborative nature of the participating projects.
An integral part of Sluice is its educational element, both during the fair itself and throughout the year, including a range of talks which run alongside an ongoing programme of exhibitions, projects, screenings, and events. In 2012 Sluice launched its first publication, consisting of works of art on paper by emerging artists bound into a limited edition volume. We intend on developing all strands whilst keeping the artist/curator run focus in all our endeavours. Sluice is dedicated to showing incisive contemporary art to a local, national and international audience.
Sluice art fair 2013 will be open for exhibitor applications shortly. We very much look forward to hearing from you.
Sluice2012 was generously hosted by the HANMI GALLERY
