Moniker Art Fair, known for pushing the boundaries of the art fair format, will embrace the digital revolution for this year’s edition, inviting visitors to participate in numerous exhibitions and interactive installation experiences, each a technology first for the art world.
The fair returns for its seventh year from 6th - 9th October at the iconic Old Truman Brewery in London’s Shoreditch, building on the foundations of six years’ experience and continued success as London’s premiere event for contemporary art.
Moniker Art Fair 2016, with its roots embedded in urban culture, aims to spotlight emerging and established talent from a burgeoning and increasingly diverse contemporary art movement, forged by its subversive and innovative spirit.
Organisers hope that beyond notions of interaction, visitors will let go of the more conservative trappings of art and simply play with the installations, opening up the fair to a generation already embracing ‘gameification’ across every aspect of their lives.
Landmark works at Moniker include: Digital Playground | by MASER
Globally-acclaimed artist MASER’s colourful, three-dimensional, 18-metre-long ‘playground’ will allow people to touch, climb and engage with 3D boxes, spinning wheels and viewing platforms, with added virtual bonuses accessed through the Moniker Art Fair 2016 App, adding an augmented reality through digital content.
