Moniker Art Fair 2018 London Edition

Moniker Art Fair returns to East London this week, with the fair officially kicking off on Thursday 4th October. Following their debut New York summer edition, the fair returns to London taking over the upper floor of The Old Truman Brewery for its 10th edition.

Expanding on last years fair, Moniker Art Fair will extend their 30,000 square foot fair space outdoors, showcasing the first-ever Formula-E art car by renowned British street artist D*Face, as part of their ongoing collaboration with Kaspersky Lab.

UK artist D*face talks about his partnership with Moniker and Kaspersky Lab as he explains his creative design process in the video above.

UNCENSORED presented in partnership with Urban Nation 

For the 10th edition, Moniker Art Fair has also partnered with Berlin’s Urban Nation Museum to present ‘UNCENSORED, a wholly unfiltered and unrestricted celebration of the revolutionary elements of urban contemporary art.

“Humanity has been failed on a fundamental level by those in power: a loss of ecological moralities; the embracement of corporate greed; inequalities rife between gender, race and social class. Traditionally, urban contemporary art has acted as a powerful voice in an attempt to highlight these crimes and enact societal change, but as the scene have been embraced by the public, inevitable commoditization has strangled those initial intentions” 

UNCENSORED will see 10,000 sq.feet within the fair filled with immersive installations that provides a platform for the artists unafraid of calling out the injustice we are currently experiencing across the world, those who have understood that the evolution of urban art does not mean abandoning its core values.

Fair Director of Moniker Art Fair, Tina Ziegler, says: "we welcome Moniker's guests to explore a number of thought-provoking, groundbreaking installations, created by some of the most important pioneers within the urban and contemporary world, curated in collaboration with Urban Nation and the support of Kaspersky. 

There aren't other events bringing these people together in the UK – it's a rare chance to see some of the most exciting international artists at one event while enjoying curated talks, films, immersive installations and so much more."
