START returns to London’s Saatchi Gallery this September, showcasing emerging artists from new art scenes to give art collectors and enthusiasts alike the opportunity to discover artwork from developing global markets.

Featuring strong presentations from exhibitors all over the world, including Australia, Taiwan, Nigeria and Latvia, START also presents START Solo, featuring individual artist presentations. These include focused series of works from artists located in diverse regions, including India, Brazil and Russia to name a few. In addition to these engaging exhibitors, START are delighted to partner with Mehta Bell Projects as the first curatorial partners of the fair. START and Mehta Bell Projects have revolutionized the conventional art fair format with an emphasis on curated projects and a more open and fluid layout.
